Love, Juxtaposed

A love that feels inevitable, but knowing it’s not right or possible; tangling with the conflict of emotions

Do I leave you behind, to be like memories I’ve known,
Because I can’t have you, because I’m alone.
If I tell you, you’ll be stuck, as I find myself now,
But between requited-unrequitedness,
and that solemn golden vow.
Jealousy tells my heart you are beautiful,
Desire tells my heart what’s more meaningful.
My heart with cautious delight says ‘go on’
I’m lost in your divinity, I’m lost in your song
But the pain says you’ll walk away
I’m lost in your talents,
you take my breath away
Honesty tells my heart you’re not right for me
Truth tells my heart that it will break, but it will be

But these lies hold my heart to shame
I’m at home in your eyes, I’m at one with the game
Your hands and heart hold my hope like a charm
I’m at home in your smile,
I’m safe in your arms
Do I stay here, in-between the darkness and light,
Or do I listen to my instincts,
Stay here, but fight?
To be alone with your heart,
For making memories anew
For Love; Juxtaposed,
But synonymous with you.
