And Now What Do I Do?

Just one
Just one chance,
Do we have
To find
And hold tightly
To that special person…

A pure connection,
A perfect,
Powerful union
Between an unsuspecting
Man

And

Woman,

Each longing

For completion.

And yet,

I’ve failed,
I’ve let you

Slip past
My outstretched fingertips

Slip past a chance

To be a

Me

And

You.

Too hesitant,
Too fearful,
Too unwilling
To accept the risk

Of falling into

Love

And life

With you.

There’s no one
To blame,
But me.

Weak
Lacking confidence,
Lacking the will

To bet it all

On a chance,

A chance of forever,
And redemption,

In your arms.

And now
This mirror
Exposes more
Of my failure
Than my eyes
Will accept.

Just the dissonance
And emptiness
Of me
Missing you.

No clear path,

No way ahead,

And wondering

Wondering,

Now

What do I do?
