What am I to do?

What a man to do?

What is a man

When he can’t admit

His feelings are for real?


What is a man without a heart?

What is a man in mourning?

What is a man if he can’t love

As fiercely as I love you?


What is a man’s purpose,

When he’s so broken down?

What am I without my feelings?


Why am I like this?

Hurting and destroying

Everything I am.


With everything I said,

What is a man to do?

But Esmie, who am I,

If I just don’t have you.
