Winter Feelings

She said she didn’t love
As she fell asleep
So we could our distance
The middle of the bed been quarantine
And I still keep my head up
As high it can be
My life is so f***in cold
But there’s nothing colder than cold sheets
When I’m needing a kiss and a hug
I look to my drink
That love is what I need
I tried to show that I love her
But she no longer cares
She said she’s disgusted with my voice
Me she no longer wants to hear
I smile when she smiles
Then quickly she frown reappears
So I paint my face like a clown does
It stays on while I’m around here
When she asleep I sneak to the room
At her face I jus stare
Thinking how the f*** did the happen
Because these emotions are hard to bare
I’m tryin to keep it movin
But it getting harder to get through the day
And it’s getting even harder to show my love
While she feel this type of way
I wish I could heal her heart
But I’m clueless on what to say
Why couldn’t this be like a bill?
Cause there’s not an amount I wouldn’t pay
Or something like the change of weather
Cause Miami is 1200 miles away
This is me being truthful
So I hope you understand what I’m tryin to say
But at the end of the day I don’t understand the emotions
Why she don’t see me
It’s like I’ve been demoted
Why she wonna leave me
I will never ask
So it’s her secrete
So ill jus let time past
While I’m sinking to the deepest

    The honesty that you have unloaded into this heavy write are raw and true. Though it reads a little rough, the message comes across just fine. Sad and searching.....Love sometimes scorches, being so close to it's flame. PEACE (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
