I Can't

I Can't

A Poem by Gypsy Dreamer
"

A song/poem about wanting to include someone in all aspects of ones life but past experiences won't allow it.

"


I want to include you
somethings holding me back.

I want to include you
I can't, I can't.

Torn and tortured past
Child's eyes... seeing fast.

Wanting to let go
the body stays, the soul goes.

Wishing out my window
scattered mind beckons calm.

Can't un-see... un-hear
Can't un-feel, this storm.

I just want to include you
somethings holding me back.

I just want to include you
I can't! I can't!

Out of body I'm climbing
a shadow below is crying.

I fall back down... I tried
a soul... a body cries...

I just want to include you!
Somethings holding me back!

I need to include you!
I can't!! I just can't!!!!

I just can't.

This sounds like a struggle between the heart and mind. A good deal of the time, intuition knows better.

Nice poem.
