Is It Really The Wrong One?

I have stumbled across a new passion: writing. It is proving to be insightful and rewarding.

How many times have I fallen in love?
Only thousands, even if I wasn’t meant to.

Really, is it you I fall in love with, over and over, again and again?
It’s always the same exact feelings no matter who you are.

That’s the one constant: My feelings, my emotions.
Then reality sets in to pierce my heart with the ever elusive two edged sword.

I’ve been down this road before, as have we all.
We all have the feelings and emotions of falling in love.

We all want the experience, to fall in love.
To be caressed with love and love’s protection.

Let me fall for the thought of you, the image of you,
Surrounded by your strange energy and the illusion.

Allow me to comprehend your beauty, your intelligence, the very essence of your being.
Not only to comprehend, but to absorb and to be absorbed, if only in the moment.

I’m going to sail away with the thought of you upon the winds of time until the ripples come back around. The funny thing: they never come back, they only escape.

I find myself tangled in your heart strings stuck in this awkward celebration.
A feeling of internal exhaustion echos in this surreal connection.

I keep asking myself why do I keep falling in love with the wrong one(s).
Is it me, or is it you? Or is it them?

Give me the recognition due.
It’s either me or it’s either you.

The feelings seem so real.
My emotions really are the real deal.

Before the clock strikes twelve I’ve fallen out of love’s grace once again.
I find my essence crushed to piece’s in the false security I thought I had found.

Where does this circle end?
When does true love come along?

It’s comes along when your attitude is mature enough to accept it.
Are you ready for commitment and giving more than enough?

Then the time is right for you to love.
