Reinstalling my System (7)

slapdashmonuments

Inspiration hits with a flash, stories written on the go. A rumble of laughter and the tale is heard only in echoes. The wind blows me in a new direction. Whom shall I visit next?


I have so much, so very much

My frame can't hold it all

I'll burst if I attempt to keep

Its mass behind a wall.

I feel so guilty! I have failed

To keep the borders free

Of raging feelings, now and then--

But then, they lied to me.

They kept me from the lovely fact:

Some hearts can love much more!

I was deceived--mine's such a heart,

But they said to ignore

The feelings, genuine and strong

That flowed with current swift

A curse to those with vows to one,

But otherwise, a gift--

A present vast that can be shared

Yes, many can partake

But only with permission. Yes,

That is my main mistake.

I cannot bear to risk the love

That I'm committed to,

By telling all, and risking thus

This bond. I wish I knew

A way to safely share the truth,

A way to cause no pain,

No doubt, no anger; risk no rupture.

I long to explain.


Comments (0 so far!)

Inspired by (sequel to):

No more can I control the way

I love, the quality

Of my affection, nor the strength--

Heart listens …
