Fyi - Poem by Donnie Wolff

You remind me of misery.

The misery of want

The misery of need

The misery of love.

The misery of not having you,

yet I do.

The pain is sweet to my lips

even as I kiss you.

The hurt of this desire

is pain to my body

yet it moves me.

Your eyes weaken my soul

yet they strengthen me.

Your words are those of suffocation

to my breath

and heaviness to my chest.

Yet I inhale,

with pure want

pure need

and pure misery.

That of which

you remind me.

    Amazing poem, love is bittersweet. It draws one in like a magnet and from thereon in its a struggle to regain control of our feelings/emotions. A futile struggle. 10+ (Report) Reply
