The complexity of past and present
Surrounds me as I roam these cobble streets.
You invade my thoughts with every glance
Of a couple holding hands or embracing in a kiss
And it pains me to think…and think.

I yearn for silence between each heartbeat
And breath that I inhale
For this constant thinking exhausts me.

I wish for protective arms to
Wrap around me and guard my heart
From harm that fights to enter.

I want to fall into a world of
You and me
That consists of two hearts beating as one
Instead of this heart waiting for more.

My entire being dwells from
Pure and utter exhaustion
And I know that this heart
Can not survive like this much longer.

How do I know when to hold on
And when it’s time
To let go
Before it completely
Tears me apart.
