Silver Portia

The Battle - Poem by Silver Portia

My heart aches tonight with indecision and hesitation,
Do I continue down this path which for so long has tormented and teased me with thoughts of true happiness?

Is it worth the risk?
Do I take a chance on this vision of a life with you?
It seems the longer I let this question linger, the more it weighs heavy on my heart.

I decide to slumber and let the answer come
However, the incubus you give me dances as a constant reminder that you have left me broken and alone.

You ask for my hand again to walk forever with you
My principles warn me of pain Yet my heart already pains for your touch How long must this war wage inside my being?
