here in the heaven I created within myself
away from the physical necessities of life and love
I find the emptyness that I have made
and the love I often dreamed of
yet in this palace of tears and words
your shrine has not been blessed
so alone I sit before your memory
tired and forelornly depressed
in my nose, the scent of you
lingers as if you were here
and my mind sees you everywhere
while I live within my fear
I had you once before me
and yet I threw it all away
like a dried roses petals
I never saw more than today
yet now that you are gone
I know the hole you filled
now just a remainder of my former self
for your leaving truely killed
you never said a word in anger
silent were the tears you cried
my eyes were closed from you that day
that day in which you died
so now as I sit before your throne
dreaming of the you that went away
may you still love me for what I did
and protect me from the light of day

Quite sad and full of desperation for someone lost. Very well done.

If staying up 'til 4:30AM and plotting against people you are supposed to like makes you this creative, than I say, "Go for it, you NUT!" hehehe.... When did you write this? This is fabulous! Really. Quit standing on that chair and flailing your arms around and write another one!

well... ummm I wrote it just when I posted it. only took me about ten minutes while you were busy making dinner and me and mike were taking turns on the computer. but if you want to know the exact time I posted it, then it is listed right next to name I put in... *evil grin*

sorry hun. if it makes you feel better, it's because I'm afriad of large groups of psychos that kidnap me and take me around the capitol area and make me do stupid stuff like talk and dance and put myself into one of those "I'm the man" type of poses. but then again, what if I really am?
