Love quest (a poem by Jack)

What right do I have not to love someone…

Truth is I don’t know how to keep you… Or if being kept is right at all.. The more I try… The more I push you away.. The further I drift…. The more you seem to lure me in… 

It’s as though I’m looking in a mirror..

But can only make out a silhouette of myself… I am losing myself to the moment… I can no longer see you just a reflection of me…

How I pushed you away.. How I never listened… How I wanted it to all be about me… 

And yet I’m facing my own dilemma.. I can’t seem to get you to listen.. I offer and you reject..

Don’t blame me for adapting to my environment because I can’t blame you for surviving…. Coping… The easiest way how..

And now we are here… I am you.. And are what I was… And I’m left to bridge the gap…

Love taught me to persevere.. Apparently love believes in us…

Love said if we don’t have the legs to stand on… It would gladly lend us its wings so we can sore…

Fly away unto a space where we can reconcile our uniqueness and just be one… And just be together… Free from you… Free from me… But together as us…

What right do we have to decline love’s offer…
