Why I need you...

Looking at you with another girl in your arms,
makes my heart burn.
The thought of her getting to touch you,
makes knots in my heart.
I know recently you have had these feelings too.
I try my hardest to make you happy,
to help you not think about things.
But lately, it seems Im digging myself a hole.
A hole I cant fill,
it gets deeper and deeper,
day by day.
At the end of one days convorsation,
we are friends again,
not lovers, but almost.
Then another day comes,
you tell me something,
and I cry again.
You feel bad and appologize,
“im sorry, dont cry”
they all sound so familar.
They comfort me for the moment,
then that night when Im laying in bed,
the memories of everything I have done to you,
they come back.
I lay in the darkness of my room,
no one to comfort me,
or to ask whats wrong.
I lay there and cry myself to sleep,
night after night.
All I want when im laying there,
is someone to touch my cheek,
and tell me it will all be ok,
but I know there is no one there for me.
No one can see or share theses feelings I have,
no one understnads.  
Thats why i need you.
Your the only one who can understand.

 A savage place! as holy and enchanted
As e'er beneath a waning moon was haunted
By woman wailing for her demon-lover!

So what, are you clairvoyant, or have you been reading my mind? This is the exact way that I feel about a certain person in my life. I know it can be frustrating, but just know that, if nothing else, you will be able to overcome almost anything through writing poetry and talking to people who will understand your pain and not judge you. Your poem was great by the way.

You completely read my mind, I'm experiencing the same thing! Thanks for convincing me that I"m not crazy to have these feelings!

of reality. If you lie to them that's like making them
autistic so that what they believe is reality is in fact,
not their true situation at all.

Great poem. I'm like everyone else you like read my mind or something. One thing i've learned is don't ever think your alone in how you are feeling as you can see many people have felt the same way. Anyhow, I can't wait to read another one of your poems.

I believe that what you wrote is a common experience, but you put it into words in a way I would never be able to.  Maybe showing my friends this will help them to see the why I acted the way I did with my ex.  This poem is very moving.

Great poem! My ex and I were the same way for along time. I know it's hard but the longer you torture yourself over some guy, the worse your gonna feel. Even if he was your first love or not. You have to fight the feeling and try to move on. But, if there is a still a chance and you know for sure that he still feels the same way about you, then by all means go for it. This may not be the best advice you've ever gotten but it's gotten me here. Just go with what you feel. It's all in the heart.

P.S. Welcome to Passions!<!signature-->
