Circles - Poem by Bonnie B Long

My life is in circles don't know which way to turn
Do I go towards the light do I let myself burn.
The song says call my name and I'll be there
Will you, or will you leave me in despair?

Friends say what I feel is way too wrong
But I can't help this feeling it is too strong
My heart says this is oh so right
But at times my mind and heart are in a fight.

Do you feel this feeling I feel?
Is what I'm feeling in my head or is it real?
How do you love someone this much before you meet
Before you see their eyes and if the look is as sweet.

Friends say I'm setting myself up for a fall
Am I, or am I answering my life's call?
Only time will tell, we'll see this through
If you love me as much as I love you.

    I vote for the heart. It is never wrong. The only problem I have found is that it doesn't always turn out the way I want. Just they way I need it to be. This is another one of yours that will be an often read. (Report)Reply
