PURSUE

You’re a guy I shouldn’t pursue
You’re a guy I shouldn’t fall in love with
Despite the longing I feel to be near you
Despite the yearning ache in my soul’s pith

I just have to let you go for now
Because what you relish is the chase
Although you’ll find nothing but emptiness
At the end of your conquest’s race

I’ve written ten poems about you for Christ’s sake
Yet again I’ve become too invested
This knack of getting attached too easily
Is a habit I’ve quite perfected

I wish I could share my world with you
And immerse myself in yours
With your eager hand interlaced in mine
This world could be ours to explore

I’ve always wanted to meet someone
Someone that can spark my soul
And this you’ve done for me my love
My capricious heart you’ve managed to cajole

But you’re still a guy I shouldn’t fall in love with
You’re still a guy I shouldn’t pursue
So this fantasy of us being together
Is another dream I’ll have to put on queue

I really wish you could see our potential
The depths of each other we can reach
But I’m not as naïve anymore to think
That in me you’ll find your sole relief
