Out Of Reach

written by: Josie Dee



There’s a moment
In this turbulence
The trepidation as I step up to the crossroads

- Where I realise,
There’s a disturbance

The fear holds my heart steadfast as it implodes

In that moment
I realise,
As my heart splits -

- I’m still in love with you - despite it all.

There’s this void in myself that can’t be made complete

But I simply want to live -
Is it too much to ask
Of my heart
- To ask of you
Without falling further,
Without falling apart

The life I have, not to be a fool

Not to live on the edge of what’s out of reach
