Hidden Track

How comes my mind is spinning back
To someone of whom I have lost track?

How comes that memories are keeping track
Of times that will never be comig back?

How comes thoughts of my personal off-the-track
Persist in a fallacy that´s impossible to wreck?

That again and again, my expectations are cutting him some slack,
Whereas surely, my feelings have become a single-way track,

That my heart is still busy with fault tracking,
Whereas its beating has not the least of a backing?

That despite all those obvious and vicious facts,
It believes in signs and wonders off the beaten tracks?

Can anyone please show me the next step
Or help me to get back on the right track?
