The Strength To Say


All the things I've wrote,
All the words I've said,
Haven't meant a thing,
You're still stuck in my head,
I haven't seen you since wednesday last,
Or spoken for 9 weeks,
But something about you keeps me thinking,
Thoughts of you they leak,

I'm sure you're back with the ex,
Or seeing someone new,
All I want is to hug the person,
That makes me feel renewed,
I hope that soon this feeling will pass,
Moving through the pain,
Forgetting about the one I need,
Ultimately for my gain,

Thoughts of you springing to mind,
I push them all way the down,
Otherwise in this deep regret,
I may quite possibly drown,
It's no use pretending I'm not mournful,
I want to see you now,
I'm planning to make it happen soon,
Thoughts of where and how,

Courage to show you what I write,
I wish I had that strength,
But even to write a card to you,
Takes me quite a length,
I hate myself for being this way,
Starting and stopping this blurt,
Pushing past what I feel,
The anger, pain and hurt,

Still I find myself circling,
Around the way I feel,
Perhaps I need to hear the truth,
To begin to heal,
If you hate me it'd be easier,
I really wish I knew,
But the courage to ask you I don't have,
So this mess has inevitably ensued.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
