I simply do not have the heart
to stand within these rules of game.
Do you not know?
Can you not see?
I stand before you, changed.

Have you not read?
Do you not feel
my words
my heart
sincerity?
I pray I'm not left
lonely, here...

Did all my hurt
blow past your ear?
Did you not say
you'd dry my tears?
My God, it is too lonely here.
My pen is cursed--
it writes in tears.
Tell me I'm not wrong again.
Lie to me or call me "friend".
Whisper, If I must relent--
must I blow ash of passion, spent?

Be merciful
Be kind to me.
Speak to me
cruel clarity.
Command the tide, return to sea.
Tell me you've no need of me.

serenitiy
this is so beautiful, so sweetly sad,
i love the flow of it...
but your tender emotions in it are so perfect...
its like a fragile rose bud.
who could not need our little sweet serenity...
*kiss kiss* on sweetcheeks.
*S*

 Well the sun sets gently on your shoulders
And it makes me want to touch you there.
And the light in your eyes makes me feel
Like there's something much better out there
Something kind...
And I know someday I might be looking around
Trying to find some purpose
Well purpose it can't be that hard to find
As long as I've got the wind...
The wind and your love to carry me.

So soft and quietly spoken with words of someone so terribly hurt and alone.

To JM--who understands me--thank you, I go to sleep the day away, now...

and to Tracie--I thank you for your sympathy--but all will be well, I think...methinks me thinks too much sometimes....

serenity, this was very sincere.

Lie to me or call me "friend".
Whisper, If I must relent--
must I blow ash of passion, spent?

.... I really liked the whole poem and these lines, could I whisper sweet lies to you?

serenity,
Those tears sure do make wonderful words.  Expresses the sadness and hurt in your heart very well.  Nice job!!

Sad poem, albeit very emotional and gutwrenching it is still beautiful in a way that I can't describe
Just remember that if we have faith in God we are never truly alone.

What have I done to cause this pother?
If I am guilty, then in shame!
I pray that it was all another
Who has the nerve to wear my name!

Serenity,
         the sadness just drips from this poem like the tears that you must have shed writing it. . .

Hoping that things go well, and that you're just thinking too much.. .
