Prisoner Of Destiny - Poem by Pink Pixie

How could I just quit, just say that I am done?
The one that you trusted, thought you could forever count on.
I made all of the decisions, never once thinking to ask you.
Something even I never thought I would do.
I know that you have questions, anger and above all pain.
Once more you find yourself on your own again.
I could give you a million reasons and somehow try to justify,
But the truth is that I honestly, honestly did try.
Sometimes excepting that things work out for the best,
Means listening to yourself, and ignoring the rest.
I don't think I can ever be what it is that you truly need,
I tried my hardest to save you, but could never succeed.
My heart feels broken, literally torn in two,
Every fiber of my being cries out- 'I miss you! '
My mind constantly wonders where you are, if you are okay,
So many times I've picked up the phone, but there are no words to say.
They say if you truly love someone then set them free, and if they return then it was truly meant to be....
I pray each night that someday you will return to me,
I pray that someday from your binds you will somehow break free.
Until that day I can do nothing but wait,
A prisoner of destiny and a believer in fate.
