I leave myself open
Hoping love will come in
A whisper, a touch is all
I need for my love to begin

My feelings grow deeper
Led blindly by the thought alone
That one day I will love someone
Someone to call my own

But in this crazy circumstance
My eyes have failed to see
The lonliness I have caused myself
To think that anyone would love me

Welcome!!  

A slice of pain is always easier when you release it.  This is a subject I know well and your work captured it well.  


 Whatever strength I add to myself becomes my greatest weakness, while whatever weakness I'll consciously endure will be replaced with a strength that is not my own.

hi gin, and welcome...i love this poem...it is sadly beautiful...

I leave myself open
Hoping love will come in
A whisper, a touch is all
I need for my love to begin
----------
you express you pain with grace,
take care,jm

 and you can say baby...
baby can I hold you tonight
maybe if told you the right words...
at the right time,
you'd be mine...
baby can I hold you tonight...

gingin--liked this much!  Reminded me of an old Groucho Marx line--ouch, serenity betrays her age--"I wouldn't join any club that would have me as a member..."

I understand, and believe me, there is Hope.

Don't look my friend for love searches not those who seek ,but rather,  those who wait.
your poem was sad but I liked it and look forward to reading more of your work.

I know exactly how you feel.  The poem speaks out to me in ways I could never express.  Very well written\.
