Avoid Loving You - Poem by Edgar John Jackson

I can not lie
I am not thinking of you
I long to feel you
Because you begin to be
Part of me.
I can not try
To forget you
Because you’re part of my life…

I can not lie
This love is stronger than me
And you are everything to me.
I can not lie
These feelings are living inside of me
My heart is yours… because of me…

I can’t avoid loving you
Because you’re my light, my day and my time
I can’t avoid thinking of you
Because you’re my mind, my brain and my blood
I can’t avoid needing you
Because you’re my inspiration, my verse and my rhyme
I can’t avoid feeling you
Because you’re my good luck and my dud…


How can’t I remember you?
If you are my memories
How can’t I think of you?
If you are my stories
How can’t I imagine your face?
If you are my eyes
How can’t I have my heart in the right place?
If you are like a dove that flies…

I can’t avoid loving you
Because you’re my sigh, my sun and my star
I can’t avoid thinking of you
Because you’re my way where you are
I can’t avoid needing you
Because you’re my sadness and my loneliness
I can’t avoid feeling you
Because you’re my big smile and my happiness…
