She sits five feet away from me, yet it might as well be a light-year· Read more…
I have no hope of bridging the gap
no hope of filling the chasm
yet still I long…
Perhaps it is only wishing to finish what I started
come to a clean end and get on with my life
But the stillness in my heart keeps me frozen in place
Slowly dying with every breath.
Perhaps it is only wishing to share my heart freely
to worry not of receiving pain and sorrow
but only giving joy and laughter
without counting the cost.
Yet my heart is as heavy as stone, hard as rock
and I grow cold and numb with each passing second
If only I were brave, and the stillness in my heart were broken
then I could do what I needed to do
and face the consequences no matter how dire
I could live.
But I'm not brave.
