How Can I? - Poem by Jaymie Lanera

I'm afraid that I'll forget him,
The things I love the most,
His sweet voice in rythm
I heard from the West Coast.

My thoughts they scatter.
Sometimes they don't mix.
Like fire and rain.
But it doesn't matter-

Because I'm trapped inside love,
Unescapable by the white winged dove.
The obnoxious contradicting thoughts
that can't be ignored with candy
or smiley faces.

Because I can't let go
of the fairy tale, movie based
love of silks and laces,
That for so long, the reality, I fought?

How can I live without it,
How can I say goodbye,
How am I supposed to let it go
when it's the only life I know.
