His Calling



He called upon me last night,
in the midst of a lonely hour.
He cried my name silently,
as he hinted of loneliness.
He calmly spoke words that,
at the time, I craved to hear.

He confessed his guilt to me,
in his own subtle way.
He talked of his problems, that
couldn't even compare to mine.
He whispered heartfelt promises
in my ear, that I knew were lies.

The stars hung lower last night,
for my heart and soul were in pain.
The winds blew colder, for
the feeling of emptiness returned.
The moon disappeared last night,
for all the feelings came back to me.

I've missed his gentle touch,
calming me in troubled times.
I've needed his warm embrace
to soothe me on cold nights.
I've craved his sensual love
to satisfy my every desire.

But the fear of his rejection
still haunts me now.
Although he is the one
crawling back to me.
I just don't think I am able
to let him back into my heart.

He has caused me much pain,
but he has granted me love.
He has shone me kindness,
but also hate and despair.
He has lied to me, and deceived
me, beyond the hearts acceptance.

So, I chose to leave him be!
