To Be With You: Johnny Lace - Poem by Jana Courville

I sit here in this pool of water
Wondering, thinking to myself
How I could have let it all go wrong
Staring into this flame, I can see you
As I had before, only now...
You're not smiling anymore
You're lips move, telling me
Not to do anything stupid
...why? ? .. why is it that everytime
I feel as if I want to die...
I hear those words in my head? ?
I can't do anything stupid because of you
I care too much to even try anymore
When I start thinking about it I feel so much guilt
So much pain... shoots through me..
As if something is tearing me apart
It hurts so much that I start to think of
The pain I put you through...
I'm so sorry for what I did,
If only you knew how much I care,
How much I would give to be with you.
What I would do to feel you.
How much pain I would make for myself,
To take it all from you.
If only you knew how fast I'd give my life,
To be with you...
