Choice

At some point in their life

Every human being has to choose:

The Darkness or the Light –

I chose the Darkness.


I swam in it

For a long, long time;

Nobody could convince me

That it was the wrong way out.


’Twas the time

When I thought that all hope was lost

That you came along and pulled me out

Of the River of Lost Souls –

A feat very few could achieve;

And yet, you did it.


I couldn’t believe

That I finally found somebody like you.


I was in the heavens for a while,

I was smitten by your soul –

So taken was I

That I did not realise you weren’t for me.


No, you were just too perfect.

I need someone

Who is just as complicated as I am.


Maybe I found someone like that –

Or perhaps I will some time –

But, I don’t think that

You and I

Will ever be one.

But, you’re just too perfect

For an imperfect girl like me –

I need someone

Who is just as complicated as me.


This is my choice.
