Here I am
reaching for you
longing
to turn to you
that's all I want
in the night
I need you to touch me
as daylight shines upon us
the days I always get through
but when the sun goes down
that's when I feel
so alone

I need you
to hold me
I read a book
I think about you
put it down
I think about you
make a coffee
I think about you
wash up a cup
I think about you
watch the clock
I think about you
turn on the light
I think about you
when I hug my pillow
I think about you
I feel lonely
because I miss you
why don't I try someone new?

because I'm afraid
I'm afraid to give
like I did to you!

RainbowGirl - Real nice thoughts. Very well expressed ....

Been there.
Done that.
Got tired of the view ...
gave myself a another chance
and felt life bloom anew.

Life came full-circle,
and love took a chance on me.
After the heartache was over
I knew just who I'd be.

No more afraid,
though I understand the fear.
Hope you turn around real quick
and find that love is near.

I had NO idea I was that hard to get over! NOT! (I normally hear something about riddance and rubbish).

Your poem is well written, Rainbow.

I'm just coming out of a situation like this...It is like an addiction, not healty, but while one is addicted, love that is just comfortable and happy isn't enough...It's like we need the ying and yang, the excitement, the danger...Ugh!

Nicely written!

Only one thing I would change, were it mine...
"a coffee" to "coffee"

But then, that depends on what part of the world you hail from.

Hoot: we all need to know we are loved, not just for now but for always..:-)

HUGS

Marge: When love is truly meant, it will be known, there will be no escaping it!

HUGS

Bal: You arrogant clown....You're as soft as they come, not hard at all...ooops...but you know what I mean, thanks for the laughter..:-) Now then, this survey, hmmmm, not quite equal, a few ounces difference I believe according to the hand that measures..*g*

HUSG

Corinne: I couldn't agree more, ying and yang or getting the balance is so true.. and ROFL @ coffee...

I know that feeling ... the French have a colloquialism for that : "je t'ai dans la peau" ... word for word translation is "I get you in my skin" ... Iknow, I know, we're funny people ..

ROFL @ heart failure ... but I can't imagine a better way of dying ...

Je t'ai dans le peu
Il pleur dans mon couere
C'est tres magnifique
Paul Verlaine - ca musique

Pardon my French, just trying to make a rhyme, about something close to my heart. But wish all the passionate poet's could read his verse. It gets in your skin!

Rainbow, Many of us have been through the same storm. But you are a raibow. There will be an end. Your poem is beautiful

The addiction will end soon. . . but don't replace it with another one. . . this is a lesson that I learned quickly. . .

Excellent words. . . very passionate. . .

Elizabeth, "Il pleure dans mon coeur" ... that's a beautiful Paul Verlaine poem :

Il pleure dans mon coeur
Comme il pleut sur la ville ;
Quelle est cette langueur
Qui pénètre mon coeur ?

Ô bruit doux de la pluie
Par terre et sur les toits !
Pour un coeur qui s'ennuie,
Ô le chant de la pluie !

Il pleure sans raison
Dans ce coeur qui s'écoeure.
Quoi ! nulle trahison ?...
Ce deuil est sans raison.

C'est bien la pire peine
De ne savoir pourquoi
Sans amour et sans haine
Mon coeur a tant de peine !

********

Tears Fall In My Heart


Tears fall in my heart
Rain falls on the town;
what is this numb hurt
that enters my heart?

Ah,the soft sound of rain
on roofs, on the ground!
To a dulled heart they came,
ah, the song of the rain!

Tears without reason
in the disheartened heart.
What? no trace of treason?
This grief's without reason.

It's far the worst pain
to never know why
without love or disdain
my heart has such pain!

I don't know how to thank you for the poem. I can recite this poem which I memorized in my youth just from having read it so many times.But didn't remember the spelling of the words. only the music of it.Paul Verlaine is the greatest poetic musician or musical poet, whichever you choose, in all of poetry. And he is the one who has inspired any musical quality in my poems.I had never seen the translation of this poem and was happy that you also posted that.

La lune blanche
Lui(?) dans les bois
De chaque branche
Part une vois

Thank you
