How I See It - Poem by Katherine Byrd

I want us to love.
For life to be as simple as this:
A person that cares for me, like keeper to dove
And for emptiness to be exchanged to bliss.

I know that is what you want
And I yearn for it as well,
But all my mind does is taunt
And scream "what the hell".

Say it to my face
Tell me what you feel
Because I refuse to go on this wild goose chase
Who knows, maybe my heart will not steal.

Stop! What am I saying?
This is what happened a year in the past.
What kind of a monster am I portraying?
All I will do is put your soul in a cask.

I cannot help but want you,
But you I cannot own.
Honestly I think it's not… or is true?
I wish my head was just hit with a giant stone.

Take me away!
I cannot stand living awake
Even if it for only a day.
No, I cannot let you… for your sake.

I do not know what to do
Tell it to my face
Or at least give me a clue.
Can you fill this empty space?
