Blocking you from myself

I’m blocking you from myself

as you’re blocking me from you

in this deadly strife

we’ve been engaged in for lifetimes

Instead of embracing you

accepting my vulnerability

I prefer to flee and drown

this longing for you I feel

How can I be loyal to you

when you are not loyal to yourself

how can I love you entirely

when you do not love yourself entirely

how can I embrace you

when you refuse my embrace

You have pushed me into this direness

and only you can let the light shine anew

upon my heart

and bridge this gap that keeps me

so cold at night
