Please Forgive Me

Can you ever forgive me for what I did? The way I broke your trust I wouldn’t forgive me. I’m sorry I let my feelings get in the way I’m sorry My feelings made things hard for you. When what I feel for you is true, I should never have made things difficult for you….

Lost

Laid Bare

I was hurting, I needed a friend I thought you wouldn’t judge me I thought you were my friend. My strengths and my weaknesses I showed to you Things that made me happy, And the ones that had broken me too. My past and my present, You knew it all My tears and my jouissance,…

The Love Story That Wasn’t – I

Part I – The Tainted Image You came into my lifeWhen the clouds were darkThere wasn’t a silver lining to be foundMy whole world was bleakAnd everyday was broken,Lengthy and unceasing. You came into my lifeWhen I’d stopped lookingWhen all hope was goneMy heart was numbAnd my feelings frozen,Dead and buried. You slipped into my…

Dead Inside

To not feel a thing To numb myself To not hurt again Those were my aims. A dead heart inside No turmoil in my mind The peace for which I’d strived In a vacuum it lies. No hurt, no pain No feeling uncertain No hope to be crushed No turbulence in my heart. No confusions,…

Can We Not Be Us?

I wish I had not told you how I felt about you I wish I had not acted on my impulse the way I always do Wish I’d just let it be and admired you from a distance I wish we’d stayed the friends we used to be If only I hadn’t said anything, Would…

Not Reading The Same Book Anymore

I always thought you & I were reading from the same page. But I was so engrossed in reading, trying to understand what was in the page, I didn’t even realize when you’d turned the page. We stopped being on the same page. In fact, we were not even reading the same book anymore. You’d…

A Flawed Love

I have never wanted you to give me the stars I have never wanted the moon All I had wanted were moments spent with you Small, insignificant and yet so dear. To wake up next to you To run my fingers on your face Pillow talks as we fall asleep To hold you and be…

I Cannot Make You Love Me

I can pen for you A thousand poems Put together words That speak of what I hold in my heart. I could sing for you a million songs Put out of tune melodies to the depths That words cannot alone express Of how much I long for your love. I could make as many sketches…

The gentleness in your eyesEvery time you looked at meThe playfulness in your voiceWhenever you spoke to meThose memories of youSo overwhelming. The warmth I feltJust having you near meYour voice so soothingAlways so comfortingThat spot on your rightAlways reserved for meFrom where…

Longing For You

I can never tell you how I feel about youThe joy I feel every time I see you The overwhelming disappointment That washes over me When I realize you won’t be coming in. Can you not feel my heart? Can you not hear every beat of my heart That whispers your name silently, longingly Although…

You And I Can Never Be

I sit here thinking about youKnowing how futile my feelings are Knowing you and I can never be. Do you even see me? And even if you did, What good would it be? Even if you knew how I felt,Where will that leave you and me? Even if you felt the same way I do,…
