Torn Between

sometimes
i don't know if i should make the most of every second now,
and regret it later
regret it later,
because i allowed a flame that i know will extinguish, to grow and to burn
i allowed my hopes to be raised when i know it will die


sometimes
i don't know if i should let you go,
and regret it later
regret it later,
because i have not allowed a friendship to grow, because i am selfish
i have not allowed a friendship to grow because of my emotions and paranoia

you never know if you're right or wrong if you never try
but sometimes,
just sometimes,
i am contented
or rather, complacent
because if i don't try, i don't get hurt
i only suffer the pain of waiting
and it's nothing compared to the humiliation and regret


this is what i think
and i may be wrong
because i'll never know if i'm right or wrong if i never try



loneliness comes in different forms
i wonder if tonight you're feeling one?
know that even when you can't see the stars,
they are there
and sometimes if you stare at the sky long enough,
you will see the picture God painted
you will see that you are not alone
that He is with you and will always be

"The Lord your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you. He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing." Zephaniah 3:17
