LOVE DEFEAT

outofreach

I once loved a man who couldn’t see me,
No matter what I tried it just couldn’t be.
I poured myself out to flow deeply,
No matter what I tried it just couldn’t be.
I looked in his eyes and down to his soul.
No matter what I tried he wouldn’t let me take hold.
I realized trying was making it worse.
I never free flowed,
I only coerced.
I tried to guide and move and setup.
Thinking that what I’d do would soon make the cut.
Exposed and found and deeper still,
No matter what I did His love didn’t fill.
I’ve learned so much from this love defeat,
Understanding now only the One will see me.
No matter what I tried it wasn’t meant to be.
Love from him was always out of reach.
