REPOST: Halves and Have Nots



REPOST: Halves and Have Nots

Half my blood’s flowing
Half my life’s over
‘not so much sour grapes
I’m not living in clover

I’ve become a realist when it comes
to the halves that I am seeing
but my memory’s only half working
I’m only half believing

That all of this is real
it’s only half of what I want
half of my mental acuity
is not something I want to flaunt

Half of my emotions
exist in my heart’s spot
‘cause I made a mental jump too quick
‘tween what is real and what is not

the whole of me was so damned sure
in the whole of what I saw
it got me believing whole-heartedly
that skittish hearts unthaw

Now half of me is wondering
as my whole heart’s breaking so:
half of me wants to stay
the other half wants to go

I do not want half your love
Nor is half what I want to give
I’ll keep searching for my better half
‘cause the whole of me wants to
love
and
live.
