That One Moment

That moment when your fears run amok
And you realize tears wont be enough
That moment when you embrace isolation
Not to face your inner confrontation
That moment when her beauty impales your courage
And you wonder if you might deserve this
That moment when she looks into his eyes
And youre forcing yourself not to cry
That moment when your poetic art
Doesnt fill the emptiness in your heart
That moment when youve lost the fight
And you find yourself scorched by the light
That moment when she brings about your end
Because you know you cant bear this pain again.

    I think many of us having had 1 love we would have died for and 'almost did?' decide the next time around to go for a less all absorbing love, I don't know if its the right choice but then again...death didn't seem the right choice either / well put write! Light & Love
