Torn

Slowly, she set the book and pen down.

She needed to give her mind a rest,

But it would break her heart to walk away.

The words scrawled across the pages

Revealed her heart, but he wouldn’t get to see.

She turned away to give him a breather,

Letting him focus on his own life.

She doubted she’d ever see the day

When her dreams might finally come true.

So she shifted her focus back to the here and now.

May as well live the life she built here

The one in the real world…whatever that means.

She knows she’ll be back, flipping through the pages,

Maybe even add something new.

But for now, those chapters would be held

May another day come soon.
