The Chance Not Taken

I know better than this
I’ve learned better
Why do I continue

Why would I put myself
Through so much
pain?
I see all the signs
My mind gives the signal
Why are my feet still?

Am I paralyzed
Why is my body
Not responding
To what my mind says?

Why is my heart still breaking?
Beating in unison
With yours

I thought I broke the ties
I thought I discarded my feelings
So why do I still care

I see your tears
Coming from eyes of pain
I am torn between
Comforting you
And taking the opportunity
To run
To flee
To be free

But I can’t
My heart still beats for you
And without that beat
There would be no life

So now
Here I sit
As the decision
Has been made
With you I will remain
Even though the forecast
For tomorrow
Is all clouds and thunder
And nothing but rain

Artist's Description

Many people are in fear of being alone, they truely believe they would die if that person was not there for them. So, they stay with that person, no matter how bad the consequences….. or should I say that was me….
