"Life's not the breath you take, it's the moments that take your breath away"~ George Strait

I'm not sure what it is I want,
I'm not sure which answer to hunt,
I search and search with nothing to find,
Except missing puzzle pieces left behind;
I run and run with no destination,
I pause and look around, out of frustration;
Stuck in the middle, no end or start,
What I am looking for has fallen apart;
I am not sure which path to follow in my heart,
So many obstacles I must get through,
To find the one answer that will be true,
The one answer that will lead to you,
Or possibly something new;
So many thoughts left unsaid,
All these thoughts which are running through my head,
I am only being led through by a single thread;
The things that lie ahead are what I dread,
What lies behind I miss the most
like a dear, beloved ghost;
It is something that is far beyond my touch,
Something I think about way too much;
It seems that it is slowly falling out of my grasp,
It is like a building that is about to collapse;
I continue down this long, empty road,
My mind is racing, my heart about to explode;
I pray and try to find what it is I am looking for,
The answers that are locked up behind that door;
I do not know what else to do,
I have not the slightest clue;
I wish I could just tell you how I feel deep down inside,
All these feeling I want to let out,
That sometimes just make me want to shout;
I want nothing more than to find the truth,
I want to find the answer and key,
The key that will unlock this door,
The key that will set everything free.

The author's comments:
What inspired me to write this piece was a rather, kind of complicating situation. There was this one guy I talked to for a while, and we both liked each other. For some reason, however, he wouldn't date me. So that caused me to write down all of my feelings into a poem, to get it out. I hope this will help people to agree on some of the ways they may be feeling as well.
