Poem by Stephanie van Oudtshoorn

You say you love me
This i know is true
though it is rarely shown by you
It's not something you hear
and then believe
You feel it flowing through you

You're so confused about your life
your commitments overshadowing your light
which radiates from you almost no more
Getting lost in your dreams
Pulling you below the sea
Keeps you under water
And still you say you're loving me?
