Are We Enemies?

Are We Enemies?

A Poem by Anastasia Purvis

Liam, I thought we were friends

From beginning to end but

Lately you seem strange and distant

Your kisses don’t taste the same

And you can’t look me in the eye

When you touch those places

In me that only lovers do

 

Don’t put an ocean between us

Or exile me to an island secluded

In quiet desperation I wait for you

Without hesitation I take you

In the hopes that you and I might be

Allies

 

Liam, tell me how do you live

With the shadow of her inside?

The bond is broken but yet she stays

Weaving a web to keep you captive

Is there something that I’ve missed?

An elusive last piece of the puzzle

That I just can’t seem to find?

 

Don’t put an ocean between us

Or exile me to an island secluded

In quiet desperation I wait for you

Without hesitation I take you

In the hopes that you and I might be

Allies

 

Please tell me this is all my imagination

I want to believe every word you say

It’s getting harder with each and every day

Chase the shadows of the past away

Tell me that you want to be my friend

And not my enemy, and stay, in my heart

Forever….sweet love please stay.

 

Liam let the ghosts have peace

And come stay with me

I need you in my life

Come please stay

 

Don’t put an ocean between us

Or exile me to an island secluded

In quiet desperation I wait for you

Without hesitation I take you

In the hopes that you and I might be

Allies

Sweet love please stay…
