    Logic dictates:
    You should occupy no room in my thoughts
    Acquaintance for most; friend for merely a breath
    We went along a path that remained separate, yet
    Always just close enough to see the others steps.

    Did you break hearts? Did you lose in love?
    Did you cry? Did you laugh till you cried?
    All I know is a frozen smile with every passing season
    Rather I see a real tear than another picture.
    Oh, to know your hearts journey
    I would wait alone 1000 years of light

    And yet I’m here…going mad.
    Mad with self loathing, knowing all
    Too well how crazy these feelings sound.
    Your song plays on the radio,
    Always arriving with a secret smile
    Springfield of all the various bards!

    What depths of insanity inspire me to write
    To cut open my heart, against all wisdom
    And let flow it’s contents into the hands
    Of an almost stranger, most likely to freeze?

    But logic be damned!

    I can’t say how (that answer may never come),
    But a piece of my heart is yours.
    I imagine it will be till the vessel attached
    Lies beneath some great blue jacaranda
    Or glides down a current of the Atlantic or Pacific

    Do not pause your life.
    Obligations? To me, none are yours.
    I set these thoughts free for me.
    Through them I have escaped
    The clutches of Life’s regret
    That seem to grab old men
    With idle hearts and swollen bellies

    “Where the sky meets the sea”
    You exclaimed on a summers eve.
    My hearts compass has truly aimed
    In that direction always same
    I don’t believe in God
    But I know heaven is very real
    It’s the place you’ll find me waiting,
    For you to love me still.

      Beautiful….I hope you find your heaven. Until then, you are right that it’s best to free your heart from the pains of regret.
