Don’t Feed the Dragon

It started as a spark
Which was blown into a flame

It started as an idea
That turned into an obsession

I never used to like you
At least not in this way

You were something special
That I will admit

The words were not mine
But soon became an echo
Guiding all my actions

I am nothing
Without the world around me

I am a judge
Too easily influenced

First impressions are everything
First impressions are easily swayed

I started talking more about you
Spurred on by their encouragement

Now you’re a permanent feature
Fixtured in my mind

I can’t sleep
Eat
Write
Or breathe
Without thinking of you

Each day I tell myself to forget
Each night you come back to me

I can’t stand this anymore
I can’t keep dreaming of what can never be

I’m sick of writing poetry
That will never capture this conflict

You make me shake
As though I don’t have enough sugar in my bloodstream to sustain me
You cause heart palpitations
As though there is something I have to fear

I can’t take this anymore
I can’t stop this flood of feelings
Why did they feed the dragon?

Love’s Pain Misunderstood

You will never know or understand how much you hurt me
Never in my life has my heart ached this much

Please just let me go
I don’t want to keep chasing this dream
To keep chasing this shadow suspended on dust

I’m still writing poetry
And dreaming of you

And though you still make me happy
The happiness is short lived
Because I know
That you do not prefer me

The realist fights the idealist
The idealist wants to win
Wants to disregard the realist
The idealist has always been stronger
Hope has always been stronger
But the realist is right

The idealist only prevails in the realm of my imagination
Only there are stories born
The realist has always been second
Until now

When it comes to love
The idealist leads
But the realist governs

There are still questions in my mind
I know I cannot love you
But yet I still do
My heart goes against all reason
My mind wants us to be friends
I don’t want you to misunderstand

You make me over think
Every action I wish to take
My intentions are pure
Untainted by experience
But I know how human nature works
I know how my mind works
And I am afraid you will think my intentions wrong

A simple question
The want to have lunch
Or a coffee
Or maybe frozen yogurt

Maybe it’s just easier if you read this poem
Maybe I should just write you a poem
