April 20

I think it may be cruel
what this universe does to me
for every step I take forward
she pulls me back three

I do all that is right
when all feels so wrong
turning the station
to avoid the lyrics of that song

I dive in head first
and create what lies within
anything to distract
the heart from where it’s been

but my efforts are futile
and she bends me once more
finding the key
to the unlocked door

not a day goes by
or a night apart
endless reminders
that she is home in my heart
