By: Trevor Skogsbergh

You're in my mind
I think of you
All the time

Shimmering eye's
Beating hearts
I've loved you always
From the start

We love each other
True and true
It started one day
Just out of the blue

You've changed a lot
That long time ago
And now look at all
You've got to show

Remember how embarrassed
You always were?
That's all changed
Your old ways a blur

Now look how open
That you've become
Much more cunning
Much more strong

I'm glad your open
As open as you can be
But there are times
I wish you could see

See me happy
See me sad
See me blush
See me mad

See me cry
See me smile
Yet I think
All the while

That I love you more
Than life itself
And I know you better
Than an old book on the shelf

There's something you should know
I've told a lie
It can't be seen
By the naked eye

It's about trust
And you and me
It all started
You didn't see

I wish you were there
To see my face
I could have used
You're warm embrace

To hold me and tell me
That it's okay
To heal my heart
Of it's dismay

I wanted to hear
"Never again"
But instead I heard
"He's my friend"

You can't expect me
To get over this
Not now or later
Or with a kiss

I know one day
When we become one
Then every ounce
Of my trust will come

It's not that I don't trust you
A bit or at all
I'm just tired of always
Taking the fall

You're at a party
Wow, that's great!
But who's the guy
You're out with late?

I know that didn't happen
But what should I say?
Should I leave it alone
For another day?

If all this
Had happened to you
Would you leave me alone?
What would you do?

If you had just told me
Right from the start
These bad feelings wouldn't be here
Not in my heart

I hope you're not mad
You know I love you dearly
Please don't be angry
This was written sincerely

I try to be
The best boyfriend I can
But times like this
I fell like a ham

I'm pouring my heart out
I know this poem is lame
But it's not a joke
Or even a game

I wish you could know
I wish you could hear
That losing you
Is my greatest fear

In my dreams
I see your face
Going to
Another place

Speaking with
Another man
Loving him
As much as you can

Me not there
But at home
Sitting there
All alone

Twiddling my thumbs
Staring into space
Wishing I was there
To see your face

I wonder if you're happy
I wonder if you're sad
I wonder if you love me
I wonder if you're mad

There are times I can't tell
If you're out or you're in
If you'll still be there
Through thick and through thin

What about times that I need
A little reassurance?
It doesn't take much
Just a little endurance

Tell me what you want
And I'll do my best
To abide by your wishes
And forget the rest

I'll tell you now
And I'll tell you true
You're all I ever wanted
No one but you

So please tell me
Say you'll be mine
From now until forever
Till the end of time

Bravo!  I am going through something similar.  You sound so desperate.  I hope you contine to express yourself through writing.  If anything, it helps release things from the inside.  I think some of the best "non" communicators are writers.  I suppose that is kind of strange.
