How Is It that?

by Tony P.

How is it that--you finally find that special someone
Your own insecurities and doubts
Causes them to walk out of your life
Neither protestation nor words are spoken from you

How is it that--you say you want love
When it finally comes you shy away
Fear from rejection or self-fulfilling prophecies
Residing in you and controlling your thoughts

How is it that—your love brings you joy
A love so real fulfilling your dreams
Not finding the nerve for saying I Love You
Or better yet commitment is not an option

Why is it that we always give our all and all
Not to the one we love but the ones we don't
How is it that--when you hold the one you love
You feel the throbbing of their heart
Your heart and your love's heart
Slowly evolves into one melodic beat

How is it that--we don't feel the rhythm
Dropping like a single teardrop falling in still water
Rippling from a single point expanding and immersing
Til teardrop and still water finally become one
How is it that love and life is one and the same.
