By: Amy M. Kennedy

Don't tell me you know me
For you donít have a clue
You don't know the uphill climb Iíve had
Or what I've had to go through
Never walking a day in my shoes
You do not know my pain
Or the many tears I've cried
As I stood out in the rain
You think you know me so well
But that is simply not the case
I hide the real me many times
Behind my smile, my face
Why do I hide you might ask?
I am scared to show my inner-self
How dare you laugh when I say that
You who is all consumed with their self
My heart has been broken more than Iíd like to recall
So I build up these fences
Making sure I had a strong wall
I tried to show you who I was
But you laughed at me
So I tried again, gave you a second chance
But again you dismissed me without so much as a glance
So now my friend, I walk away
Just remember youíre the one who wanted it this way
You donít know me
You just pretend you do
And now that I know the truth, me and you are through

That was a very expressive piece.  I enjoyed reading it... and in fact have been feeling the same things.  Fences are good... but only last so long.  Thank you for sharing your gifts with me!

powerful words amy-girl...very well written and can write like this...and still be sunshine...we just have to put on our dark glasses  
great job...write it it out...
love ya, jm

 The stars shine so bright, now's the time
I close my eyes - soft wind touch my face,
Cool sand upon the place where I once kissed you
And held you close.
Now I will reach for the stars...
Because Oh my love, that's where you are...
Though the storms of black night rage on
I still see your face
I still feel your lips on mine
And though my heart feels all alone without you
I still hear you sing to me
I still hear your voice on the sea...

Smiles sometimes cover sorrow and yes, we do build fences. This person who wrotee this has experienced pain, and expresses it very powerfully. Well done

much that you refuse to
try new things. The
saddest summary of a
life contains three
could have,
might have,
and should have.
