My hair hangs down
falling across my face
soft and flowing gently
absentmindedly
I tuck it behind my ears
as we kiss
my hand moving to your face

My eyes look up
trying to hold back the fire
keeping my thoughts
from showing their desire

It's so hard to be
someone different from me
when all I reach out for
is the 'we' we used to be

it's there in my eyes
shining for all
when I look at you
my heart says it all

I try to be nonchalant
but fail all the time
as you look in my eyes
they betray me and shine

they say to have loved
is better than not at all
but deep inside my soul
my heart breaks
shattering as it falls

Confusion does reign
I see that so clear
as I wish that my hugs
could bring you back here

So I brush back my hair
and stare straight ahead
with loving green eyes
as you try to convince me
our love has to die...

You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.

Painful, yet wonderfully written. Such a hard thing to go through...
