Cannot Deal - Poem by Audrey O'shea

I'm sittin here rocking back and forth, to me you dont know how much
your worth. cant you just see, that all i need is you here with me.

i know there is no possible way, i know this, i want you to stay, and to feel you
place upon my lips a kiss.

Those times back then, i think i could fly, but once again, i cry. i need to move on and live, but i want to turn to you and forgive. and to my dumbness i did, i feel this numbness, guess im still a kid.

i have all these dreams, but nothing is ever what it seems, and by myself i can hear myself scream.

Theres nothing i can do, i cant deal with this pain, inside im thru, but outside im sane. what to do with these mixed up thoughts, you may not remember, but ive never forgot.

you creep inside my dreams, my words, my tears, as i scream, you
heard, and became my fear. im ready to fade, let me go so slow, on the
ground i laid, as everything poured out of me, everything i know.

i can feel this pain, its so real, it deepens in my veins, and NO... i cannot deal.

    I think anyone who has lost a love can relate to the despair you express here Audrey. It's the ''moving past it'' that's the part that makes you stronger. Very powerful writing. Sincerely, Mary (Report) Reply

    I've just read this poem, and Irristable Lust, too. You've put into words and conveyed a feeling of absolute despair, of having reached the utter depths, of being finished.
    If, as one of my friends has suggested I do, you are writing about something you have never experienced, then this one is nothing short of a masterpiece.
    But if this is an outpouring of your own misery, Audrey, please seek help. Or write to me.

    Love, Fran xx
