Dim the glaring lights
and stroke the fire's blaze.
Just hold me close-
let me pretend
you feel the love
that I can't see.
Run lazy fingers
through my hair
and let me fall
in to fast sleep
to dream in colour
of the most requited love
inside your warm.
Let me wake
to morning rain
and only then
shall be the time
that I will let you go.
Just give me till the morning
to find that strength
to turn my back
while you walk away from me
forever.

That person that I was-
And this One-do not feel the same-
Could it be Madness-this?"

So true..but in the meantime you can write beautiful poetry about your hopes and dreams.  I liked the smooth softness of this.  James

A lovely poem!  If this is real life.....take the lead. Don't be passive.  The best way to deal with change is to help creat it.

Just my two cents worth....

"Cause I can't make you love me, if you don't. . . you can't make your heart feel something it won't. . . here in the darkness of these final hours. . ."

*Sigh*  This is wonderful. . . now, where are those candles and that tape that I made long ago?

Your one voice sings with the music of love. . .

There is nothing worse then loving someone who doesn't love you!  I feel for you I know the feeling.  A beautiful poem.

Erin,
   I will add another compliment to your list.  I have only been a member for a couple of days, but you guys have all been great.  I have never seen such creativity in one place before -- or such kindness.  I am so glad you let me into your circle of friends!
