Holding Back Myself

I am holding back
Myself
From your charm and charisma
After all
I don’t want to fall in love again
With you
Only to be cheated with broken dreams
No, I am not
Accusing you or even predicting
I am being rational
Free from expectations and untouched by trance
Definitly not!
This is not at all easy.
But tell me
Do I have a choice?

  5. Can't say really. Do you feel you have a choice? That is crucial...

  6. The heart sometimes gives us no choice, but that is the adventure.

  7. Emotional. An expression of what you feel or might feel. I'm not sure about it as a literary work but it probably has great therapeutic value, I can think of a number of women to 'prescribe' this poem for.

  13. So, yes. You have a choice always, which is why stepping back--making that one delay--may be the best choice of the rest of your life. Very well expressed.
