Raspect

1.

A sticky habit

I seem to get stuck in the cycle

Of stepping outside your reach

Fearful of drowning blissfully

In the current of your love

Forever is what you said

That scared me away

Fleeing to what I know best

Giving where I don’t receive.

2.

The chase is more rewarding than the prize at times.

The ego won’t mind.

3.

Each time I shut you out.

I open the door,

To find you waiting.

4.

It’s safer to love someone

You know won’t love you back.

5.

You shared the directions,

You showed me the code,

You gave me the keys,

You sent a description,

Then you forwarded a map,

To your home.

I still got lost.

Trying to find another home.

Driving shallow lanes.

Looking for you packaged as someone else.

6.

Karmic waves,

I’m riding,

Loving you,

Reminds me of

The men who tried to love me.

7.

The only good thing about a heartbreak.

Is knowing you’ll survive.

I found your picture today,

The power of the mind,

You would say to keep a smile,

You called,

When you knew you was gonna die,

You loved hard,

You had something to say before you died,

No fear,

The worst has already happened,

You said,

No fear,

The worst has already happened.

8.

I have to remind myself,

I been through worse,

I have to remind myself,

I been here before.
