How can this be?

That the one who holds me together
is tearing me apart
The one i always turn to
when i expose my heart

How can this be?

That my feelings are so clear
and yet I can't understand
I just want her here with me
to hold my shaking hand

How can this be?

That the feelings I have for her
I pray she has for me
I only wish she knew
to set my heart and soul free

The words i wish to tell her
Please god explain to me
Why is it so difficult
How can this be?

How can this be? It can be alright...I'll leave it to the rest of the teen poets to explain!! Great poem! Welcome to Passions, may your stay be a joyful one.

Love and hugs,

There are so many questions, but so few answers. How could it be? tell the truth, I don't know, who does?

What I'm trying to say is that everything is this life happens for a reason, we might not understand what that reason is, even if we want to understand real badly, we just weren't supposed to understand. We should make peace with the fact that life won't always go the way we plan it, or want it to be.

I think this is a good poem. Keep on writing.

very nice poem, well written.

 "Sa souvraya niende missian ye." \
I am lost in my own mind.

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice
From what I've tasted of desire,
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great,
And would suffice.
-Robert Frost

I don't think anyone can answer this question, but you'll find the answer later on

This question is one that I know that each and everyone of us will ask ourselves sometime in our lifes. Unfortunatly, the only person who can answer this question is yourself. T.O.P is right in saying that everything happens for a reason and you will find the answer eventually.

Otherwise Dave, welcome to passions and a nicely written piece.

I am sorry the game of love has got you down...I think about if the person that I liked even cares about me. But i rember if they don't then it was not ment to be... and if he comes back to me then wonderful.. it was ment to be. I gusse I agree from a previous post that said "things happen for a reason" Like when my best friend died 3 years ago... we do not know why we can only have faith that she was needed for some reason. Even if it is just a break up it happened because there is obviosly someone a lot better for yo in the sea. Mabey you don't think so but I sure there is....
Hope is on your side....

Wow!  Let me start out by saying I too feel the same way or at least did at one time for another.  The words you have written here are so true, and passionate.  It's hard to imagion that someone could not find interest in a guy that can express himself so openly through writing.  I think that yu should share this with that lucky girl, who knows she could very well feel the same way about you, too.  I look forward to reading more of your work.

Good work!
Very similar to my situation.
Take it cool and let her free!
If she loves you back then its fine otherwise be her guardian angel.
