A Rock In A Hard Place - Poem by Michael Fischer

I can't love you;
I don't know how.
I can't hate you;
I don't know why!

But I do know
how to let go.
If only I knew
when to let go!

I wish I knew
how to hang on:
I wouldn't fall
so frequently...

I wish I knew
how to hang on:
I wouldn't have
to wear your cast...

But you taught me
how to listen...
To raise my hand
before I speak!

You shouldn't have;
Because of you,
I can't even
hear myself think!

I wish I knew
how to hang on:
I wouldn't fall
so frequently...

I wish I knew
how to hang on:
I wouldn't have
to wear your cast!

    First, I thought this was about something completely different from what I thought at the end. Very well done, stirred a few emotions in me. (Report) Reply
