I stand here impatiently,
At your minds door,
To affriad to ask you,
Answers only hurt me more.

I stand here foolishly,
With so much to overcome,
Losing sight of the future,
Wondering where its coming from.

I stand here in silence,
Insecurities in hand,
Thinking back into the past,
Reliving it agian.

I stand here challening,
All the sweetness that we've known,
I've been here so long,
But is this really my home?

I stand here but cant whisper,
That we never let it go,
The past, and my pain,
That I never seemed to show.

I stand here anticipating,
What the outcome will be,
After all the hurtful words,
You chose to say to me.

I stand here but dont enter,
Perhaps another day,
When your stubborness and mine,
Will have something more to say.

Sometimes it's really hard to take that first step Amber....to chance what may be waiting on the other side of that door, but sometimes we just have to give in and hope what's on the other side is better than on the side we came from. Good luck

I hear a sadness in this beautifully written piece of work.

Amber, I wish for you the freedom to express yourself openly and honestly, without fear, to anyone, but ESPECIALLY to that one special person with whom you choose to spend your life. Your poem touched me. Thank you.

My advise as you will see
the door shall open up for thee
There is one thing I have to say
Love will always find a way
I like the way you wrote this down
For this you should get a crown
Keep knocking at the wood
And it shall open as it should

Very nice



 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

LOL thank you so much, i never thought that my poetry could touch someone so much. i used to think before i started posting here that the only heart that could truly understand and cherish my writing was me, but since i have been here i have learned differently!

Now,sis, I think I'm jealous...I used to be the only one who got to share your work   But I guess I can learn to share a lil bit...seeing as how "I" still get to go through your stuff while you're sleepin- he he! And by the way HUN(te-he), I'm glad you and your stubborness got through this. Much love from your sis-ter!
