The game of avoidance is played so well
perfected it so, it's very hard to tell
when and if it's on, one does not know.
There is nothing and no one able to show
what comes from - lays deep within the soul.
Because there is a refusal to believe
it becomes impossible - one can not conceive
what it is that becomes a part of the personality
that will take a relationship, lead it to finality
and never see, perceive what was laid down.
It must be only one way - a set of ground
rules by which one must comply
or it's over the relationship must die
a very slow death from the awareness
there will never be a closeness.
What does the broken heart do?,
inside, bury the thoughts of you
so the soul can keep on living
knowing you will never be giving
in an inch let alone a foot or two.
