I Cant Stand To Watch You Cry - Poem by Melissa Devane

You want me to stay
and so you pray
With tears in your eyes
i cant stand to watch you cry

you wont let me go
and this i know
but cant you see
your hurting me

with blood on my wrist
and my hands in a fist
i breathe my last breath
and put you to the test

i couldnt take it anymore
and i was so sure
that you would come through
and that i thought i knew

now as you hold my lifeless body
your suicide your plotting
and through your tears
you screamed your fears

everyone stares wide eyed
as all you can do now is cry
i am sorry for all that i have done
i knew everyone was just having fun

but now you kneel at my grave
and to be with me is what you crave
as my body lays still in the dark
my soul in heaven saw the mark
i left apon your heart

you slowly move on and win the emotional fight
but you still remember that tragic night
and now you pray
that in heaven i stay
with tears in your eyes
i cant stand to watch you cry

    I wanted to give this a recommendation, but I just didn't think it weas written well enough to take full advantage of the situation and thought being expressed. It just
    needed more work and polishing to make it a better vehicle for the idea and thoughts expressed.

    It would absolutly be tragic to see a really great poet die what is even more tragic is that you simply dont believe in your talents What a great gift you could hand to the world through your art of writing I believe in you I say this not only as a fellow writer, but also I also love you As my daughter I am amazed by the wealth of knowledge that you have that you can do so much and go so far with it.
