A Few Visitor Comments

Your poem made me cry because I could feel what the write needs. Thank you for writing this.

Only You

Walkin' down the street...
Livin' a lie,
Cars pass by...
I just want to cry.
I walk toward her house...
Knockin' at the door of sadness,
She opens up her door...
And all I feel is madness,
What do I say?
What do I do?
She's looking at me curiously...
I can feel the questions in her heart,
She says "what's wrong?"...
And then it hits me like a dart.
I whisk her off her feet,
and carry her inside,
I cry as she kisses me and tells me "it's alright."
I say "I'm sorry...
I didn't mean to hurt you,
A lot of things have been happening lately,
Grandma's died,
I've moved,
and I've loved you,
but I haven't had the heart to tell you.
For all I hold inside is guilt,
and love.
All I need now is you,
'Cause otherwise I am lost,
without reason,
a living lie,
with nothing to live for,
but the thought of loving you."
My heart awaits her answer...
