Almost Halfway There - Poem by Cynthia Aluning

An immense connection, of riddles and passion
Woven sweet nonsense to pieces of admiration
A triumph of imagination that has caught fire
Takes roots, blooms and grows one day at a time

An hour of intellects seems like a second
But a second of passion seems like an hour
In midnight blues as clock counts time for you to come
I will always be here more than the clock could ever count...

People have walked in and out of my life...
Some stayed for days, months, but not quite
This oblivion, you came back to soothe and pacify
When it seems the whole world just passed me by

Im scared to think of you 'cause I might not stop
Im afraid to be with you 'cause I might not let go
Realities have withnessed what I have gone through...
In my dreams and reveries, still...I awaited you

Do not lead me on and leave me confused
I'd rather be left than have my heart used
Dont get oh! too close if you'll just pass by
Giving you up is divine than everyday, a lil'...I'll die

What if I told you am starting to care?
What if I told you am here to stay?
What if you found out I can fall for you?
What if I told halfway there

...almost there!

*** A poetess' present to a poet, originally titled HALFWAY THERE
