To Learn To Love - Poem by Justin Hendricks

My feelings beyond what eyes can see.
My heart below the waters of love.
Drowning in deceit that holds the key.
To our future when we rise above.

My poison felt by all who dare.
To come into my world and see the pain.
Looking into my heart they see despair.
And only question what keeps me sane.

Is it my love for you that keeps me here?
From twisting into a shadow in the night?
Or is it my need for one to wipe away my fear?
For one to treat me just right.....

I will never see the light of day.
If you don't leave before I say.
I never loved you, I cannot love.
I haven't learned, I'm yet to see above....

My heart changes day by day.
From each word each person will say.
Gives me thought of betrayal to my evil way.
There is not one to make me stay.

Not enough to not feel alone.
Never enough to give me hope.
Just enough to reap what's sown.
And hope you can cope with what your thrown.
