Price I Pay, The - Poem by Paul the Lion

The price I pay
for the things I say
is exactly what I deserve
I can't believe I had the nerve
to say something so absurd
it's comparable to an evangelical proverb

Now that you're gone I'm full of sorrow
I wish that you'd come back tomorrow
Without you my heart is calling
Without you my spirits are falling
I have enough tears to fill a river
Every moment without you makes me quiver

Everyday without you clouds cover the skies
Every second without you I despise
The things I said I won't say anymore
If you come back my spirits will soar
When you come back I will roar
and make love with a quality I haven't had before

    Wow, this poem is awesome. Honestly, I never thought guys could really have a sensitive side, something tender. Where I come from, they are all stupid. I reall like this poem, and if it was true, I hope you get her/him back. (Report) Reply
