How should I say it
When I do not know what to say?
How could I say it
When I am not even sure?

It tears me inside
It eats me up.
Sleepless nights
Wondering what.

Trying hard to reconcile
The what is
And the what should not be.
Never knowing pure happiness.

I drown in the sorrow
Of wanting and hoping,
Of love and hate.
Because of you...
