  Here I am again. Thinking that I'm standing on solid ground, but there you are once more swiping the ground beneath me, Telling me it's not time. So here I stand holding my heart in my hand. It's bleeding, dear lord please make it stop! I can see just beyond the horizon now. So clear does it look, thoughts scramble in my head.... Is that the promise land? Probably not, Once more I remember that I'm solemnly here with my heart being my only companion. I stand here frozen knowing what I hold in these hands is precious, golden, its my heart without it I'm nothing. But selfishly I reach out as if to grab on to what seems all so clear. I reach nearly dropping my heart. With a gasp I tighten my fist. I cannot let it go. Reminding myself What I see is an illusion But in my mind it's already too late I have already imprinted in my mind that there something more, I'm spinning now lost in my own mind. Grief coming from within. my spirit is now so numb, so weak, My inner thoughts tell me it is not wise to head into the unknown I force myself not to listen. thinking out loud I say Should I leave the sunset which I have known from early on and head out into the Horizon and take a chance? once again it is time to decide. what will I choose? what seems to be right or what I know is? I refuse to let my heart go. Stop this torment...The right choice is just a few steps away. think,think,think. Lord what have you come up with? I need an answer.

Is it about a guy who won't get engaged, but still wants to have the relationship? Men are such jerks! I say walk, but then I don't have to live alone as a result.
