Mistletoe

by joetwo

Mistletoe, why do you tempt me so?

Why do you give me such sweet hope when I should know better

I take you to my heart and hope you will bring her to me

Yet I stay and do nothing

Your promise keeps me fixed when I should be searching

When I am under your spell the future I should be making

The soul mate I should be tracking slips further beyond reach

Mistletoe, you provide such sweet hope

But it is not hope I need now

What I need is action

To find what my heart is empty of and plug the gap

To seize what life, what love has to offer

Mistletoe, it is better to be out in the world then under your garland

Waiting for fate, for her, to come.
