The Anchor's Lament

Location

You reel me in,

I cringe from you.

You toss me aside,

I hold you down.

You throw me out,

I run away.

You long for me,

I stay in the sidelines.

You lure me back,

I come back,

hardened more each time.

You give me words;

"It's the last time,"

"I've missed you so..."

I hear nothing.

You reel me in,

I back away.

You toss me aside,

I hold you down.

On it goes again.

If you really miss me that much,

wouldn't you fight harder to keep me?
