A Little Close; A Little Far. - Poem by Freewill Amon

Sometimes I go through the day without rest
Sometimes I lie in my bed to ease the stress
And when I open my eyes to behold reality,
I would wish I could make my dreams real.


If I see, I might take
Out of curiosity, I might taste
If I taste, I might swallow
And if I do, I would be said to be shallow.


When I look, my attention gets caught
When I see, I get distracted in my thought
When I watch, I would want to get a little closer
With hope that the nightmare will be over.


I just want to be a little close, and a little far
A little close, but not too far
All I want is to be free
And I am keeping it real.


Like the eagle, I soar
Like the lion, I roar
I think that I am moving forward
But my lonely heart tells me that I am a coward


Nevertheless, the man in the mirror remains a champion
He still frees his will like the lion
He still won't give up as a soldier
And he still walks around in broad shoulders.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

This was inspired by my desire to stay out of relationship while fighting the feelings I's having for a lady.
