Why

My heart says, "It must be now"
My mind says, "Why is this not sparking?"
so that is why I'm writing.

When we are together I forget anyone else is there.
But somehow, there is no flare shared.

"Why? Why?" I ask myself.

I tried to understand it, and it seems I've caused a mess,
for our contact continues to digress and digress.

There's still a soft spot in my heart for you,
In what way? I wish I knew.

I'm oh so filled with sorrow
am I to be forgotten?

I hope we can meet again
to attain a strong friendship.
