Please Tell Me It's OK

Please tell me it's ok
To miss you the way I do?
Please tell me there's a way
To see this darkness through.

God, I need to hear your voice.
I need to know you're still there.
Do I really have a choice?
I cant just pretend I don't care.

I still see you in my dreams,
I hold you in my mind.
But when I awake it seems,
Reality holds me blind.

Is there something I've said?
Did I turn you away?
Or has the dream of love led
Two akin hearts astray?

I'm constantly recounting
All the words you used to say.
Forgive me, Love, for doubting...
But please tell me it's ok.

Michael Anderson

I could not love except where Death
Was mingling his with Beauty's breath -
Or Hymen, Time, and Destiny
Were stalking between her and me.

Ohhh...I'm so sorry Michael. But please stop writing such sad contacts can't handle this...and I can't afford new contacts every week...LOL.

I'm sure everything is fine, but I do know what you are going through. When the mind is mixed with fear and the heart is involved...there is no comfort until you hear the voice of the one that you love. I hope you hear it very soon!

Loved the poem, really.


We are only truly apperciated after we are no more!

Michael, I knew when I saw your name and the title, I would be in tears after reading again. I wish I knew what to say. All I can say is I hope you hear something soon and give her the benifit of the doubt, maybe something happened over which she has no control.

Michael, Love conquers all, stand strong all is not for nothing. I know she is somewhere praying she can come to answer you soon. It's O.K. to trust, and have faith that one day soon your heart will be reunited with it's destiny.

It's ok to feel this way! Christopher's right, when the mind has time it will start to think things like that. Hang in there, the day is coming soon. I'm sure something important has kept her. I'm sure she is dying to talk to you!

Michael, I know that you are hurting and I wish I knew all the right things to say to make you whole again but we all know only one can do that. Just try to keep the faith and I know in my heart of hearts that two people do not write such beautiful poetry and not feel it. She will be back soon.

If you love me like music, I'll be your song.

I have no words for you Micheal. Words can not really help you right now..mine anyway. All I can offer is a shoulder to cry on and warm, friendly arms to comfort for a moment. You will have your answer in time, it is just the wait that hurts.

Michael....gees....somehow I missed this one when I got back from my move...I found it tonight and read it...(crying) I knew you were hurting, and I wanted so bad to be able to tell you it's ok...that I'd be back soon. I'm so glad we have eachother close now, where we can call when we get worried....I'm so sorry for all the pain you felt - You know I'm here to stay.

I beckon you to come...I lure you with my tongue... - poet FemmeFatale
