Where Do I Belong?

Others seem to have their place
'mid family, friends and lovers
a place that keeps them steady, strong
while me, I just keep moving along

searching for a key, a meaning
that would explain myself to me
that I might understand
the poverty of love across the lands

yet no matter the answers I find
in the webs and weaves of time
it seems I must end up alone
even in this place I call my home

but my heart does not flourish
nor my inspiration bloom
until an other enters here

then why, tell me why
do these others hurt me so…?

they wish me weak instead of strong
desire control instead of caring
manipulation instead of honesty
seeking pleasure minus love
wanting security without commitment

insisting love can be
without emotion
and then they wonder why
I walk away

and still, I am left wondering
just where do I belong
if not with you…?
