Stuck With Mixed Emotions - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

You've got me,
Locked.
You've got me hinged.
You've got my heart to open up.
But you keep yours,
Hidden within.

I am locked.
And magnetized.
I feel as if a need is clinging,
To never let this feeling end.

You've got me locked.
You've got me hinged.
You've got my heart to open up.
But...
Your door stays closed within.

What am I to do?
You've got me stuck with mixed emotions.
What am I to do?
I can't saddle up and leave.

What am I to do?
You've got me stuck with mixed emotions.
And,
I'd rather not be sure...
Than be sure I've been delusioned.

You've got me locked.
You've got me hinged.
You've got my heart to open up.
But...
Your door stays closed within.

What am I to do?
You've got me stuck with mixed emotions.
What am I to do?
I can't saddle up and leave.
What am I to do?
You've got me stuck with mixed emotions.
And,
I'd rather not be sure...
Than be sure I've been delusioned.
