flawed logic.


flawed logic.

I miss you and I adore you, my love.
Every day and night, you’re all I dream of…
Your arms around me and your perfect kiss –
I have to believe we will get through this.
You showed me how beautiful life could be.
You’re magic, my love. I want you with me.

I once thought fairy tales didn’t exist,
Then I saw you, the man for whom I wished.
So sweet and kind… and when we connected,
My mind, heart, and soul were all affected.
I had to convince myself you were real.
My head had to trust what my heart could feel.

For many years, I felt sadness and gloom,
So lonely, doubting my dreams could come true.
I survived so long without you, my dear,
These weeks apart should be nothing to bear.
This is logical. It makes perfect sense.
Or maybe it’s just my heart’s best defense.

Because, my sweet beautiful man, you see,
One fact is absent from my simple theory.
My logic is flawed. It’s terribly wrong.
The reason I made it without you is gone.
We had never met – I was just wishing.
So I never knew what I was missing.

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Hawaii where she could learn to surf. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

  1. Beautiful work once again! I’m not sure if it’s what you meant to happen, but after the first stanza, I started like a Dr. Seuss rhythm in my head as I read your words! Then the voice in my head turned to my “teacher reading in kindergarten” voice, so I had to start over again.
