Why do we love?
never seems to be returned
we spill our friggin hearts out
and get our asses burned

I like and I love
but no answers to recieve
for you I give and live
but yet I feel deceived

Why is it so hard
to learn how others feel?
why cant they just give something
to make it all seem real?

You want it or you dont
its not that hard to learn
just think for one short minute
for what does your heart yearn?

If its not me just tell me
I cant take this much more
I need to know the story
please just pick a door

I'll walk through not knowing
if love I've ever known
but please dont lie or hurt me
without the answer shown

Just give it to me straight now
I really need to know
am I going wrong ways?
my love needs to show

I can no longer hide it
its building fast and hard
yet you never tell me
in my hand I hold which card?

Let me come and show you
that my love is real
I would never fake this
my heart is free to steal

"I dont know what I want"
please, how can this be??
its been so long, I'm waiting...
say what you feel for me

If its something tell me
but if its nothing, say.
you just cant know how this feels
please show me the right way

I cant do this forever
but if its there I'll wait
this is all quite painful
just standing at the gate.

Thank you for your comments and concern, Watcher and Pepper. They are greatly appreciated I was jumping to conclusions without being sure of what I knew, but its all good now It is a "challenge" for me, and fun as well, makes me feel good to try and I hope it all works in end, one way or another. Whatever ends up though, is meant to be

I also felt a sense of panic, or was that my own? Very nice poem. Don't know which is worse, standing at the gate or straddling the fence.

hehe I'm with Ohme on this...which is worse? And OUCH to that straddling the fence comment !
I really liked this....it dripped of frustration, and wow, can we all relate to that at sometime or another! Especially in relationships! This was very hearfelt and sincere - you do well with writing your negative, pleading emotion down ! I'm glad to hear all is well now.
