Believe - Poem by Renee Lewis

It's a curious domain
Not easliy explained
Searching and wondering
Roaming and blundering
For half a heart you can't find

It's a flicker
It's a feeling
It flutters through your mind
Secretly glancing round
Eventually mourning
When not found

Contradictions plague your soul
Unsure and yet you know
Holding on
Letting go
Totally out-of-control

You push it down, further down
Attempting to wipe it from your mind
Then you go about your day
Discovering
Never does it go away

Is the search wearing thin
Is your sanity giving in
Do you fight common sense
Reject
The nonsense

Will you trust your instincts
Open your mind for a sign
Maybe you'll obtain
That something
You can't find

You do realize it's not by chance
That you seek the other half
Of your heart
Cuz from the start
It's been the plan

For you to discover, to find
And not decline
What's nestled deep
And snuggled close
Inside your mind

You need to believe
That it will appear
And be clear
I haven't a doubt
That's it's near
