How far is far enough
and how long, too long already?
What is to be in love
for the puppeteer Destiny?
Is numbness a comfort
when your life starts to fall apart,
with no center to hold
or love to soothe your bleeding heart?
I have waged war
against my fate and lost
but not without
a precious lesson learned,
it is wiser
to hang onto things we have got
life has left us too broken and burned!
