Mandi Higginbotham Poems
My Sweet Sin
Can't you see I hold you Deep inside my heart? As consequences rip us apart I try to tell you honestly
Why Do You Love Me?
As I fight through my mind I have to wonder why You say you love me. You don’t know where I’ve been
Oh dear sweet heaven Tell me why I feel contempt So deep in my heart Tell me why I feel lost
And in the morning, Will you help me greet the day And bring the sunshine to me? And yet I’ll say, 'Keep it in the sky
You Love Me, Love Me Not
When you say you love me My heart becomes full And I know that you'll be there To catch my tears
I wish to weave you a poem of my thoughts Filled with unspoken, unused words. Words that have never lied Or been used many times
Catching My Tears
Why can't this be a dream? Yet would the angels bring me such tragedy? A single tear slides down my cheek As a dark hand gently brushes it away.
...And is it right that the waves That rage against my weakening heart Are from the typoon that you create? How can I love a tempest
The rain is falling all around And the puddles are growing As I stand in the flood Letting my tears fall unnoticed

My Sweet Sin
Can't you see I hold you
Deep inside my heart?
As consequences rip us apart
I try to tell you honestly
I love you more than life
But you, you hold the anger
And I, I am cursed to look
Look into another's eyes
And not yours, my love
Can't you see the Lie
Was my shield I held
Only to keep you...
I felt secure with it
It tight in my grasp
As it's what I've known
Known for so long...
I love you and now this.
What is to become of us
Now that I've lain my shield
At your feet and exposed
My bleeding heart to you?
Tell me, my ...
