Just Don'T Know - Poem by Dava Makiah

Sad the memories
in a lifelong conundrum
of yearning
I just don't know
how I feel about meeting
I'm too much like a color
hidden behind a silk screen
all that's seen
ever is a silouette
what's so special about that
I want someone to step through
I want someone to reach me
I want to be held deep
and penetrated further
I want
and that's the problem
so I'll withdraw
so I don't have to say
it's all my fault
one moretime
My heart is full like noontime
my role
is already on it's way
what else is there
i don't see much
for me
to do
i just don't know

    going on
    no choice in that
    what life demands
    the heart always seeking
    and one day will be found
    for sure
    a powerful poem
