Jpo, My Impossible Love - Poem by Mississippi Moon

When I look at you I see
A man so full of mystery
A man who lives with so many scars
A man who hides behind his own bars

How did I come to love you?
Was there really anything that I could do?
Anything to keep me from feeling this way?
Something to make it all go away?

It all started so suddenly
A word, a talk, a laugh it may be
Seeing you day to day
Knowing the price I would have to pay

I love you completely without reservations
I can't get my mind off so many conversations
Thinking of what could be
You will never know how much it hurts me

To know that I can never be with you
No matter how much I may want to
I've known it all from the start
Only I have contributed this pain in my heart

Why do I put myself through so much agony?
What can I do to make you see
No matter how much I try to hide it
I know, honestly, I can't deny it

I try to convince myself it's all in my head
I try to tell myself you haven't said the things you've said
If the eyes can speak words unspoken
Tell me, can you see how much my heart is broken?

Broken not because of you, but me
Broken because I know what cannot be
Broken because I don't know how you feel
Broken because this love is so real

So real, so wonderful, so deep
So deep I find it hard to sleep
Wondering if you are okay
Praying I get to see you another day

But why? What is the point?
It's not like I can just bust out of this 'joint'
There were commitments and promises made
How can I live my life carrying on this charade?

I can't keep myself from loving you
Even though my head tells my heart not to
I love you all the way down to my soul
I love you knowing this can never unfold

You embody everything I have ever wanted
You've touched my heart in a spot that has been haunted
Haunted with pain from many, many years
Haunted with all these underlying fears

What I would give to be part of your life
And know there is a point to all of this strife
To see this world through your eyes
And to rid myself of all of these lies

I need you, however wrong that may be
I need you because you are now a part of me
I need you because you make my heart sing
I need you because you are everything

All the impossibilities of this situation
So cliche to even carry infatuation
I don't care about rings, age, or authority
I don't care what this love portrays of me

I was confused but not anymore
These are no longer feelings I can just ignore
Nor do I want them to hide
With you, I haven't one ounce of pride

Maybe I will let my feelings show
Maybe not blatantly, but you will for sure know
'Inappropriate' is what you'd probably say
I just don't see any other way

I want you, all of you, forever
Even if my forever may end up being never
The heart has its own reasons
Even if they never see the turning of the seasons

I am utterly and passionately in love with you
I can only hope that you feel the same way, too
A love stemming from such impossibility
You mean everything to me.
