Divided

torn in two

 

one wants so much to stay by your side

so much to never leave this place

to never learn danger’s face

so much to never know independence

 

the other wants so much to be gone

to be somewhere so her thoughts can grow

be somewhere so the troubles go

to be somewhere – anywhere, but here

 

and i know that the two can never coexist

without struggle

without fight

without darkness

clouding light

and i know that i must choose one

more than the other

or the other

more than one

 

but to choose would mean to betray

someone

something

someday.

  1. O, Nessa, I absolutely love this. Maybe it’s because I know how many can relate to it – the division of the heart – the splitting of the soul. Yet, I also feel that the past is never really passed – that which is part of you is always part of you.

    My favorite lines – i know that i must choose one more than the other or the other more than one . These words reveal not only a depth of emotion, but the heart of love – of Libra (if I remember correctly). 🙂 Beautifully written. ~ My love to you, Bobbie
