But I don't make you lonely


You take what is yours,
And I will take what is mine,
The rules are convicting,
As the conflict keeps us still,
There is a "why",
But we have no face to see the truth,
And so we dance within the trenches,
Of our loss,
Trying to make joy
From the ground to our hands,

On and on, it drags,
We stare at a door,
That neither one of us will enter,
And yet, that is all that makes us, common,
Do we have our hearts?,
The pieces we gave?,
Will we ever know?,
But one thing is for sure, and that is,
Finally, we told the truth about ourselves,
Through every single word we said,
In these silent hours,

So many "if's" resonate through between these souls,
To hide the fact that we yearn a precious touch,
Either forever or one last time, just for memory,
Just for "old time's sake",
Nobody wants to stay,
And no one will ever leave,

So lost in the war,
So lost in the times,
But these are the chains you made,
I'll guess we'll all move on,
Yes, we all must move on,
But these are the changes you made,

The dancer moves without a trace,

A lot of thoughts from this poem. I believe that each and every one of us are separate - being in love doesn't mean you lose your identity, you gain a more individual aspect to it - I explain what I think badly, just this poem made me think that deep down, all of us are individuals we love and live together but no one has the right to dictate minds - food for thought and I am probably on quite a different track from what you intended with this - but thats what I love about reading poetry - how many interpretations a poem can mean to us
