Time and again I ask myself, Is this worth it,
Time and again I ask myself, why make a fool of yourself,
Time and again I repeat the same mistake with my heart,
Time and again, I hurt myself and my heart like a fool.
Love beckons from unknown sources, but no,
Alas, my heart seeks the known hurt and pain,
Like a fool, I end up at the same doorstep,
Where, I know, this will never last a lifetime.
Why does this happen, I wonder?
Why is unattainable, so alluring?
Why the heart wants, what it can’t get?
Why do I induce so much pain for myself?
Am I my own enemy, I wonder,
For no one hurts me, like I hurt myself,
I always seek what I can’t get, ending up with,
A scarred heart and one more frozen memory.
