Tonight Is The Night - Poem by Carissa Thiessen

Tonight is the night
I tell myself
Tonight is the night
I will break free

Free from a life of sin
A life not worthy of your love

Tonight is the night
I tell myself
Tonight is the night
all will be made right

Right with myself
and right with you

Tonight is the night
I tell myself
Tonight is the night
I tell you I love you

I love you with all of my heart
all of my soul and all of my mind

Tonight is the night
I tell myself
Tonight is the night
When I must say Goodbye

Goodbye to a chance with you
A chance that I blew

Tonight is the night
I tell myself
Tonight is the night
I die

    Tonight has no choice.
    Just movements of the hart.
    It happens before and after you knows.
    With wet eyes and a sour hart.
    Stings of hiding lust come out at night,
    And in the day, with a clear brain, , , , , ,
    Reason.
    Will you look behind the closed blink, ? (Report) Reply

    'Tonight is the night I die' - shocking! ! ! So it's the second last poem, and I'm hooked! !

    Very powerful poem!
