I walk into the room, I still see you there
Putting on make up, sitting in that chair
Pictures line the desk, they also grace the wall
I was always there, to catch you when you'd fall
I smell your perfume, I hear you call my name
Ever since you left, I haven't been the same
I miss you so much, but you'll never know
Just how much I cared, because you had to go
Would you really care? If you knew today?
I tell myself you would, why'd you go away?
I return to my car, I want to see you
I put it off so long, we both know it's true
I pass several homes, I am almost there
I am growing weak, it's too much to bear
I got you flowers, I hope you like them
All your favorite color, they are all long stem
Well I'm at the place, I get out of the car
You're right around here, you're not very far
Finally at the spot, I look down at your grave
It said, "Nat, we miss you," damn I must be brave
I want to say so much, I want to say goodbye
I loved you so much, why'd you have to die?
My eyes watered up, I don't know what to say
I laid down the flowers, then I walked away

your poems are always great. they are so personal, but they still can make connections with others. it was sad, but oh so beautiful too. most of my poems are sad, but thats just what i write. i love your writing style and poetry style. good job, keep it up.

Another wonderful poem seiz, i definitely agree with ashley b's comment on how your work is personal yet felt by others at the same time.

You were curious what motivates me to write... 80 percent of everything I write is from personal experience. The other 20 percent comes from outside sources (such as suggestions, a movie, a story, a friend's situation, etc).
As for the poem you're suggesting... it's possible. Contact Dreamer with your request and she will forward it to me. In your request include the following information:
01: What perspective is the poem to be written from? (eg, first person (I, we, us) or third person (he, she, they).
02: What is the overall message to be conveyed? (eg, acceptance, moving on, longing for, etc)
03: Everything you just posted about it to keep it simple and I don't have to keep running back and forth.
If you do that, I'll know you're serious about your request and we'll take care of it. Later.

Judging from the fact I never received an email request message from Dreamer, I'm going to assume this was a false request.

Since you didn't reply to my last email, I don't know if it's an active account... so I'm posting that poem you requested me to write here too.. I know it's probably not what you wanted.. but I gave it a shot... so you know..
There's some things on my chest, I think I must let out
So I'm writing you, you know what about
We were together, for over a year
You were my first love, you eased my every fear
More than anything, I wanted you happy
You were everything, that mattered to me
But life has a way, to always turn out wrong
If it can it must, I just don't belong
Before I was with you, I was all alone
I had many faults, I could not atone
Yet you still saw me, as someone in your eyes
This was the first time, I had a good surprise
I was always lost, I never had a soul
No one noticed me, I think it was God's goal
But you washed away, all that brought me pain
I was so happy, I just can't explain
But I kissed the slut, that's stuck in our school
I just don't know why, I felt like a fool
I tried to tell you, and you got so pissed
It's not like we fucked, girl we only kissed
Then you found a guy, and cheated on me
That went a little far, I think you would agree
You tried to get me back, but it was obscene
You were so dirty, you needed Mr Clean
Just a year later, we talked on the net
You'd leave your boyfriend, for me, yeah, I bet
We can never talk, without the fighting
So how could that work? I don't want your sting
I still miss you now, but just understand
That girl that I kissed, was just never planned
I'll regret forever, just letting you go
But our time has passed, I thought that you should know

Very nicely written, if you hadn't written it, I probably would have..Ommfg, almost everything you write, reminds me of past experiences. But, hey, at least you can write down the shit that I can't. Nice job.
|Seizure (22.214.171.124) -- Sunday, August 17 2003, 04:28 am|
I appreciate the over generous comment there. I like it when others can relate to the bullshit I write down...
|ashley R (126.96.36.199) -- Sunday, October 19 2003, 04:51 pm|
I think i would have to agree w/ Luc on this one. I didn't xpect the women to be dead. I'm sorry
|Seizure (188.8.131.52) -- Sunday, October 19 2003, 07:01 pm|
You don't have to be sorry, you didn't kill her.
|Ashley R. (184.108.40.206) -- Wednesday, October 22 2003, 03:02 am|
Hey sorry bout your friend. I mean i cant help but feel sorry, its just one of those things.
