About the Poem

What if life wasn't full of contradictions? Would we never have second thoughts, and just act on our first? This poem is about the contradictions of the everyday mind, and the everyday thought.

I was/am in a relationship just like this. We might have broken up yesterday. It seems odd to say so, but the feelings are so mixed. This poem described my feelings EXACTLY!

Twisting And Turning

Mixing and matching,
Twisting and turning,
Hoping and praying,
Dreaming and considering,
Never knowing yet always knowing,
Wanting to, yet not wanting to,
Mixing my heart,
Matching my soul to yours,
Twisting fate with the flick of the wrist,
Turning my life over,
Hoping that it would end,
Praying that it never would stop,
Thinking it was over,
Wishing that it wasn't,
Dreaming of its coming,
Considering letting it steal within
Never knowing if it's true,
Always knowing that it's there.
Wanting to live in the light,
Not wanting the light to come,
The love of another
The dreams of someone close,
Remembering what you used to feel,
Can it come back if you pray so?

Oh, my, god! Wanting to live like this forever and wishing the pain and confusion to end is what have faced everyday for the past few years. If i ever knew love could be so complex - wanting yet hating the feelings the jump out at you from all directions - i would have ripped out my heart long ago. Im 17 and it relates to me like a petal to a flower, down to the last detail. Its amazing, your poem, it touched me and i thank you for pointing out a few feelings that i couldnt understand myself. Thank you.
