Do I write her?

Do I want confirmation

that yes,

it is best to end



if yes,

if she does think this best

I will

because I know,

as she knows,

this can,

this never will go beyond

a computer at her end

and a computer at my end



for the words

that passed from

east to west


west to east

warmed her

as her words

warmed me

and though

I know

as she knows

this will,

this can go no further

and true ,

so true ,

common sense

tells me to stop,

to let it go


if she wishes

I will

but love for

this lady

is still in my heart

and impossible longing

for this lady is

still within my mind,


if she wishes,

I will stop,

I will let it go.

Since you can't have it both ways it is sometimes advisable to make a choice and just move on...sad as it is

Reviewed by Rose Rideout 2/25/2010
Markie for your heart, it sounds to me as if you should let this go as you stated it can never be so all you are doing is causing yourself pain, it's time to say goodbye.
