it's never easy when the heart loses something- it's like broken glass
between you and the door- with everyone
knowing that you're in your bare feet-
naked and waiting to be cut

and nothing rings louder than the silence
of the phone when you tell yourself you're not waiting for it
and nothing you do to keep yourself busy
ever works in the end...
Your heart is always listening.
Always waiting.

It bothers me,
this distance from you
imposed because of time and space and LIFE
taking us over
wearing us down
and I don't have the words to tell you
to make it easier
I don't have the insight to get you thru it-
but I do offer you my friendship
(this time)
instead of my heart-
it always should of been that way to begin with.
no more broken hearts.

in the dark, reaching for you...whoever you are
and are you ready?"

Author's notes:

I didn't mean to post this..it's hardly finished and is what I call in a rough spot between being really bad and being somewhat acceptable (I'm a perfectionist when it comes to my writing, what can I say?) but in reading over "Krystal"'s piece and the thought patterns that emerged after I stopped to think about my own personal "room" of hell
I decided to share this one. Not really a poem.. not yet. Just words expressing a feeling.
