what causes my soul to yearn for what causes me such pain?

and where is the source of the river of tears i cry?

Is it even possible that the rivalry, that the conflict i feel

is just two halves of my heart flying by?

I love him, nay, I love another.

One and both, and neither.

With my all, and nothing at all.

Is it possible that i don't love myself either?

Am I so blinded by selfish desire that who is mine is never their own?
an endless warped fantasy of mindless, sensless drones?
and i seek to find the only One.
The One who reels me back in after I've been overblown.

Are they just a dirty gauze placed over a festering wound?
All and none, and all that are around?
the ones I call to when they are needed
and, without a care, cast them aground?

My constant search, and lack to find,
and I use and abuse and leave them behind.
the pain, unbearable, the disgust with myself.
A woman with many lovers, and unsound of mind.
