Glen Hope, PA USA
Meaningless words written in a poem,
the out pouring of my heart,
feelings I can't seem to get across to you.
I try to tell you of my love
but it all seems so senseless.
I tell you that I love you,
but you don't reply.
I put all of my love into a kiss,
but you don't respond.
I reach for your hand,
but you pull it away from me.
Confused and hurt,
I try to hide behind a dream.
I picture us together in paradise...
always a happy ending.
Then I see that look in your eye
and all my illusions fall to the ground,
shattering into tiny pieces
that even the slightest breeze blows away.
Again, I am left empty.
Suddenly I realize,
you can not fill the gap in my life...
I had just tried to shove you in
for want of something better to fill the empty space;
and so I let you go.
I will find the person I need
and I too will be needed.
Somewhere out there,
somebody has a place in his life
just big enough for me to fit in.
"In the depths of winter, I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer" ~Albert Camus
