Listen to my Words

Have you ever felt this way
I'm sure most of you have
I gave all my love
While she only gave half

You know what we had
Yeah, it was real
I know what we had
But I guess you didn't feel

And i'm far from perfect
I can't read you mind
If I could i'd use the right words
To write this rhyme

Instead my mind is eating me
Thoughts congesting my head
Nothing but your love can fix this
No not even meds

I just want to hear you
Tell me the truth
Tell me that you love me
Then show me some proof

'Cause I cannot keep this up
I'm running out of rhyme
I can control your love
Like I can control time

So listen to my words
Or watch them as I speak
'Cause I would give you my whole heart
But you broke it baby, it's weak.

    Very beautiful.
    Yes most of us have felt that way- but the feeling will pass. You will find someone better.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
