Of the constant loneliness
Of the empty darkness
Of pretending to be strong
Of feeling so sad so long
If seeing your handsome face
Of knowing your in a far away place
Of acting as if its ok
I want you in back in my arms today

May I continue

enough, of putting yourself through this
enough, of the useless pain
enough, of wanting what you cannot have
enough, holding onto a lie

sorry, couldn't resist.... it is a wonderful writing of the hopelessness of fighting within yourself

Yeah, these aren't really feelings I have now, but did at one time. The feelings I have for him today are more at peace. But still existent......

My Unicorn

I've always been the type of kid that wanted what I could
never have. Always been the kid that wanted what other people have. Just the fact that of knowing that I can't have it makes me turned on, and wanting it more. But whats the point of wanting something that you know you cant have.

My, this is to the hear. As you say, enough is enough, yet, when there is on one in this world, that can take the place of..., Well, there never is enough, is there.

Pamela, your work is becoming more and more excitine, and filled with honesty, just the way I see it.

This is very good!
If my heart wore a hat, I would take it off to this poem.
