About the Poem

Life gets more confusing everyday, and that confusion spills over into our personal lives. We can't decide who we want, when we want them, or anything else.

Can we truly love, and yet not really decide to? Make a choice. Make it now.

Take Me or Go

Need an answer to my question
Have to have something more concrete
"Maybe" is a scary word
And so is "perhaps"
Allows you sweet escape
Entraps me in dread
Don't do this to me again
Be my lover or be my friend

You came out of nowhere
And charmed me away
Now I'm longing for you
Take me, or go

I remember when I learned to know you
Your spirit's perilous
I took next steps gingerly
And tried to build trust
When I looked in your eyes
I thought I understood
But I realize you are hiding
And can't stand another hurt

You came out of nowhere
And charmed me away
Now I'm longing for you
Take me, or go

I've been patient for too long
And forgot what fire is
What about my fears
Of being cast aside
We could be much braver
Instead of silent
Unless life alters really soon
I'll pack a bag and leave

You came out of nowhere
And charmed me away
Now I'm longing for you
Take me, or go.
