Why?

As night nears,
I sit alone.
Amidst a pile of
heartache
and tears,
I wonder.
I worry.

I wonder,
how,
did we get here?
I worry,
that I can't see the
answer,
between the closeness of
then,
and the distance of
now.

Why?

Why does it hurt,
you,
that I want,
need,
to fly free,
to be who only
I
can be?

Why does it hurt,
you,
that I want,
need,
to travel,
to trod upon the
paths,
before my feet?

Why does it hurt,
you,
that I want,
need,
my solitude,
to be with only,
no one,
but myself?

And why,
oh why,
does it hurt
me?

"I can't see the

then,

I have some answers I will relate privately.

Good poem, my friend. Odd saying that about a male.

Christopher:..I see someone in touch with their feelings and their needs and someone with a lot to give...

Big Hugs
