LONELY IS TO LONELY

© 1999 Laura Golden

 

 

Fascinating is to fascinated
wonderful is to full of wonder as
you are to me.
Actual is to imagined
doing is to wishing as
what's unfolding is to what we hoped could be.

So now it's time to let this change happen
time to let things be what they are
but right now I am broken and I just don't want to lose,
lose one more, don't want to lose another dream

Choices are to circumstances
risking to fulfilling as
knowing how to settle is to knowing how to be alone.
Illusive is to ever-present
mystery is to understood as
things I try to change to things I try to set in stone.

They say when one door closes, another opens
and usually I'm the first in line to say it's true,
but now I'm not so buoyant and I just don't want to lose
lose one more, I don't want to lose another dream

This narrow path is to the whole journey
clenched fingers to an open hand as
where I am is to where I'd like to be.
This day tender is to tenderhearted
lonely is to lonely as
this pulse echoes lonely back to me
this pulse echoes lonely back to me
