Longing to stay but must walk away

Longing to stay but must walk away

A Poem by EmeraldFacet

If there was a chance I could still call you mine
Would that change anything?
Stubbornly, I'd like to think, all you really needed was Time

My bruised soul yearns to nestle with yours
Just as it had once and many other nights before
You now exist somewhere between flesh and thought
The space in me you occupy will forever be distraught

And as I lay my weary mind down to sleep
I must painfully accept
With an ache in my heart
That you were never really mine to keep

I am sorry to say I walked away
But I realized I would tied my forevers
To someone who didn’t know how to stay.

I believe that embers of the past have just enough potential to start a fire in our soul, enableing each one of us to, not become great for ourselves, but rather to do something great for someone else.. more..
