Fill me with adrenaline.
Shared energy; pushing, pulling,
Summoning greater strength.
Life courses through my veins,
Feeding me, awakening me.
Rhythmic pulses: hearts, legs, minds.
Arousing bodies and emotion unforeseen.
Unrequited sentiments fall gently,
In the truth of a moment in time.
Perfection for but a short interlude,
Punctuating the complexity of life’s struggles.
The intricacy of emotion comes not undone…
Rather, sentiments are placed gingerly on a high shelf.
Pausing, she sighs deeply yet contentedly.
Her lover was never truly close enough to touch.
For a past with a different future.
For decisions that come easily.
For balance and harmony.
An unrealistic result.
For understanding without judgment.
Apologies come too late.
Regrets serve no one.
With a desire to acquire wisdom.
The opportunity in pain.
The many joys and pleasures.
The panoramic potential.
Where my heart resides,
There my life shall follow.
In pain, I’ll seize moments of joy.
In struggle, I’ll capitalize on strength.
In imbalance, I’ll be steadied by wisdom.
In confusion, I’ll recall resilience.
In emptiness, I’ll draw on possibility.
With confidence I’ll stand firm,
Guiding my heart purposefully,
Knowing my life will follow.
