Lost In My Mind - Poem by Khaleel Steir

Another night I can't sleep, as I lay there tossing and turning
Restless as my thought take over and my emotions run loose
My mind tries to get me to move on. She's gone, it's over
But my emotions fight back, showing me how much I love her
Another civil war has erupted, I love her yet I have to move on
I feel as if I'm locked in a cell, yet the keys are in the cell with me
I don't want to leave, my heart yearns for her
Yet the risk is too high and my life will cease to be bright
As I start to drift away, deeper in thought, the memories appear
Showing us together, laughing, happy, and I can' stand how we've split
Then my thoughts show me the things that could go wrong, the outcome that will come
So I lay there, frozen, torn apart as the war rages on
I love her because she's worth the trouble, yet I have to move on because my future rides on it
