I Want To Breathe.
Author: Icytears


It hurts.
Goddess it hurts.
The pain building up before crashing around me.
Then rebuilding again.
I can't breathe,
the tightness in my chest.
It hurts.
It hurts.
Nothing will ever stop this pain.
Except a few words that could, and probably would never
Escape from your lips again.
The three words - I love you.
Even I like you.
Would put this pain at ease.
But yet, that will never happen.
To hear those words leave your lips.
Never again, never again.
It hurts like hell.

To know you love another,
To know that I will never be loved.
Never by you, never by you.
I wish with all my heart it was me,
I wish I could let you go
Down, down the river you could go.
Taking this pain with you
I want to get away from it all.
Away from your chilling blue eyes.

Get away from me please.
Take my pain away.
I want out.

I want to breathe.

------- Author's Notes -------

This was just something I wrote about a month ago because I was so depressed about losing someone I love.. even though I lost him 9 months before. Still hurts. It's not really a poem... just thoughts all pushed together.
