Wish I Wanted

I want to want you. It is normal to want you. You are a goal that fits into normal life. It's expected. I wish that I wanted you but I don't. It bothers me that I don't. I don't understand why I don't. I'm strong enough to fight for you, to care for you, to chose you. I wanted you once but you appeared to me now. At a time when I'm reckless & tired. Now, that I am a shadow of who I once was and am redefining myself. A time when the weight of my sword and my will to protect one person are the only things keeping me from shaking and losing my balance as the ground shakes from beneath me. I'm teetering, I'm faltering but I am slowly coming back together. I am a work in progress. Your arrival is enough to collapse what little foundation I have. Although you deserve it, I don't have the years you require of me. I don't see that far ahead.

I know that the memory of you will live in me always. I know that I'll wonder. Its human nature. The fact that I am able to do something, that I could barrel thru it and be at peace with it, that I was good at it in the past, these are not reasons to do something without the desire to do it. I wish that I did want you but I am not human enough to chase a goal simply because society uses it as a measure of success. I will not make promises to you that I am not ready for, just to let you down. I wish I were ready. I wish that I would fight but not every road presented comes at the right time. This declaration of truth, like all others, does come with a price. As I write, there is a part of me that dies a little more. I paid the price of feeling the pain that comes with something dying inside but I was not made to do things by force, obligation , or out of guilt. You deserve to be wanted and this is how I show my love for you.

      I like that you feel my work new but what do you mean someone in mind? I need you to explain?

      Like an individual out there. Or are you just like reflecting in general. It seems like a lover you once had recently was rejected here. Must have been painful for him.

      Hi Daniel... My writing lends itself to more than one situation but hides my truths well. To be honest, this piece is about an internal debate about whether or not I want to have children in the future. There is no rejected lover in this case.

      I like that you see it but I prefer that you feel it even if it doesn't mean the same thing to you that it did to me. Thank you for the beautiful compliment. Made me smile. Are you becoming biased, I wonder?

      I was kinda flattered that you thought that I was rejecting another potential lover, like I have them lined up. Hahaha. So not the case.

      The way that you talk about it as if it was someone you knew in the present. LOL. Sure, I'm biased. I like some authors better than others.

      When I really like an author, I keep coming back to them. For instance, one atheist author that I like is Victor Stenger. I would like to read more from him.

      You're a goddess. That's not a metaphor.

      Athena. That's a metaphor. Or an equivalent.

      Wow, Daniel! :D There is nothing on this Earth or beyond that could ever make someone like me a goddess but the words will swim thru me and bring me a smile for a long time to come. Thank You!

      I suppose to be seen like that at any time in life is as close as anyone here can get and the stars couldn't have complimented me any better.

      Athena is the Greek goddess of wisdom, courage, inspiration, law and justice, just warfare, mathematics, strength, strategy, arts, crafts, and skill (sound familiar?). She helps the heroes on their quests. The parallels are overwhelming. You're the American version of Athena.
