I can be strong.
I can resist.
I can remember the lessons of the past
And refuse the pull of a fictional future.
I can admire from afar
But keep my distance.
I can harden my heart to possibilities
That were never possible –
apart from within my heart.
I can focus on the truth..
The truth I’ve learned the hard way, every time.
His heart connects to mine;
Our minds are so alike;
We inspire the greatest within each other; but,
We will not be together.
