TRIED and TRUE

I wanted
to be held
in the
worst of ways
I wanted
to have Someone
kiss the day away
Someone
Tried and True
Someone
I could trust
Who knew
Where I come from
Where I would fall
Where I’d run to
when life
became too much
and I felt too small

No
It’s not You
as bad as it feels
to know
I can’t touch
I can’t breathe
I can’t reach
I can’t keep
You for Me
How the Sadness
cuts so deep
Everyone must think

It isn’t You

Ring around
the forsythia bush
Spend Summer
in the cool
of the basement
Talk of everything
til the training wheels
come off
and I can
ride away
Grown and Free

No
It’s not You
as right as it feels
I know
I can’t touch
I can’t breathe
I can’t reach
I can’t keep
You for Me
How the Yearning
quickens my aching
I can’t weep
for You

It can’t be You

When was
I last loved
Legitimately?
Where is
He I didn’t see
at the time?

If I can find Him
Will He erase this
feeling that
only You are right

Toss the rule book
out the window
Love’s not
built on Yesterday
Kiss me now
by my car
In the fog
No one will say

It was You
