In & Out - Poem by Anita Khelawan

In and Out …..
In and Out
Here I am
Out and In ….
Out and In….
Am I here
Lost in time with no direction
I've denied logical thinking only to be driven by my emotion
Physically alone
And at times like this I wished I had a place to call my own

In and Out of love
Out and In love
I rather be out of love
My heart aches for your sympathy
Baby please, ‘baby baby please' tell me you love me

Oh how these tears seem to differ
Once thought we'd see marriage in our future
So much so I left my heart at the altar
But I wish to hurt no more
Time to go... can someone please tell me where's the back door

In and out of love
Out and in love
I am left with no direction
I'm all alone in the dark
Can't go left never been right…so I'll keep assuming the position
I'm ‘bleeding out love' like Fiona [the singer]
But even Fiona found herself a lover [Shrek reference]
Looking back now I kinda see where I was warned
It's too late can't go back, won't go back the lines have (already) been drawn

In and out of love
Out and in love
I cry as if my tears would wash everything away
I strive to breathe the breath of life each and every day
I stop praying to have you
Instead I ask the Lord to give me the strength to see my way through
God knows I love you probably a bit too much
You say you never asked for this
For there's no need to ask for something that already exist

I am driven by love that's why I can say ‘baby, I love you so much'
But baby please acknowledge me, love me before it's too late and my foot is off the clutch.
In and Out
In and Out
In and Out of love
Out and In love

    In and Out
    In and Out of love
    Out and In love

    will the cave man ever change....the hunter gatherer has his own biological compulsions....
    the black widow its spinaret and the web are the true rebels....they are sadly natures freaks....
    could we learn from them....should we....will teh helical ever allow it self aware.....phew! !

    very thought provoking
