Love of my life

Love of my life

you

Can pull me so deep

you

Can force me so low

you

Can make me entertain letting go

But when it’s time

To loosen my grip

That’s when I know

I can never quit

So I stay instead

Waiting for my feelings

To stop crowding my head

Clawing my way

To see the light

Trying to shake

Off our latest fight

Then I look into your eyes

And I know

That I was just telling myself

A bunch of lies

To make it seem like

It hurt less

To have control

Love of my life

Here I am

Falling in love again

Ever so slow

    After reading your latest poem I went to look at some of your earlier ones. Like this one a lot, especially the last three lines.
    Mahalo!
