without/within

 

My life flows

From who I understand myself to be

If I am power, I cannot trust

If I am lust, my eyes can never rest

If I am doubt, I hold back

If I am survival I run ahead

and the Reaper take the rest

If I am separate from you

I am alone

I thought that love should be held tight

Possessed

Given only when returned

And then I thought that love

Could not be given

Could not be withheld

And always is

I will write a letter to Love

And ask her

 ◊

I can do nothing more

Until I free the bird

In this snare

◊◊◊
