I grieve deeply for the loss of love,
as I choose to be alone.
Self-sacrifice I know something of,
as my heart hardens to stone.

I am tired of being misused,
that is beyond my control.
When offered friendship I have refused,
for friendship carves up my soul.

To passion I opened up my heart,
a burden too much to bear.
I knew better than this from the start,
now I have hatred to spare.

You see misery is my own fault,
myself is the only one I blame.
My entire world came to a halt,
women are always the same.

To be honest the problem is me,
terribly twisted and flawed.
I view myself pathetically,
dramatically under-awed.

Prevention of passion is the key,
to the chains holding my Beast.
Dispassion will prevent misery,
keeping me from pain at least.

I shall retire from writing verse,
at least I will for awhile.
I will return to living my curse,
then plaster on a fake smile.

Such a sad verse. Your pain is your own because you make it so. Friendship is always available to you from this Female. I hope you find your peace.

You stop writing verse and I'll kick your butt! Don't you dare! Lucie is right, your pain is your own because you make it so. And no matter what, you have a friend in me as well. You mean a lot to so many people here, Dream. Don't leave us in Darkness. We need your "illuminated" words to inspire us and touch our hearts, to remind us that we can feel. We need YOU!

I hope you don't quit buddy! I don't see you as twisted and flawed and certainly not pathetic! I hope you choose to write my friend, it is something you are well talented at!

What better way to quell your misery
Than pouring it into your poetry?
You cheat yourself, if from your verse you part:
Our sweetest songs are sung with breaking hearts ...

Don't stop. You're good, we all enjoy reading your stuff, and darn it, we're just selfish that way ... you gotta share the wealth!

I share my words, well I'm reminded of a song by Garbage, "Pour Your Misery Down on Me."

Life is pain is poetry, at least I'll be productive.

I don't understand this I guess... how can someone's actions be your fault?

I have more to say but will do it privately! (Boy are you going to get an earful from me!)
