POEM – THE DOUBLE EDGE SWORD

She has to love him from afar.

That is the way these things are.

Well at least that was their answer.

She has no control or say in the matter.

Everything happens for a reason they chant.

The heart doesn’t always get what it wants.

Does giving the heart what it wants bad for her?

Why give her such gifts in the first place to cause a stir.

Only to take them away and leave her yearning for yesterday.

Knowing all that she knows today.

Would she choose to erase all the memories?

Live a life full of unfulfillable reveries?

She decides to hope of what could one day be.

For what they say doesn’t mean that is the way it will be.

Her hope is her double edge sword.

It will keep her spirits alive but can potentially offer no reward.
