One Word - Poem by Josh Burnett
I want you to give me something to live for,
Then maybe I wouldn't hurt anymore.
Although I don't know why I'm hurting in the first place.
Maybe it's because knowing you is a mistake,
But my heart feels like that it's right,
But you won't talk to me late in the night.
Is there a reason to fight,
To try and win you by my side?
I think so because I believe everything you stand for.
Maybe I want to be the one to piece your heart that's tore.
I don't know... It was just a though in my mind.
Maybe it isn't what I really feel.
Maybe what I feel isn't really real.
How do I know when that one word is complicated to understand?
And when I understand how do I know I can withstand holding your hand?
Maybe I just can't comprehend when I look into your eyes seeing the emotions deep within.
What is emotion? A feeling? A thought? An action?
I'm confused because of you.
I though I felt that one word,
But I guess I was wrong.
How do I describe it? A poem? A song?
Should I make it short? Should I make it long?
Am I capable writing such a word down on paper with ink?
Emotions can't be described, maybe that why I can't understand.
Because describing emotions is the missing link.
So when I say that one word is it what I really feel?
Since it can't be described, does the pain really heal?
Or do we just take baby steps until we forget?
So when you ask of me to say that one word to you,
I will have to say no,
Because to be honest I just don't know.
