The Gravity Of Love - Poem by John Paul Ang

The gravity of love
this time, pulls me harder
Draining all the i hope i have
Distancing my dreams further

I now unable to distinguish
between my pride and my promise
The flame i sought to extinguish
just wont die and denies me bliss.

I'm lying on the ground,
Back against the floor
Thoughts running without sound,
heart's tired but still craves for more.

Eyes focused on the sky
Staring blankly at clouds
Time just wont cease to pass by
The future hides behind its shroud.

The gravity of love pulls harder
Unable to get up and walk away,
Felt like the world is on my shoulder
The weight causes my mind to stray.

I cant shake off
this sinking feeling
like a stubborn cough
that blocks my breathing.

I know i am aware
but i just cant help it
claimed by despair
Blinded by self deceit.

The intense gravity of love
surmounted the gravity of my hate
Drained me of all the will that i have,
forcing me to defy even fate.
