Words Of Love - Poem by Tori Godwin

I stood on the edge of insanity to search
for myself, my wasted years, and you
None of these things I can find
My heart sinks lower once again
I wake myself again today
to the same bitter loneliness
I try to open my eyes, my heart, and my mind
to make myself realize that you are gone from me
When your face is shown to me
I forbid to look because I cannot see the sight of you
For if I stare to long or think too much of this
I guarantee I will fall deeply in love all over again
My heart still yearns for you
That cannot change no matter the circumstances
Your touch, your smell, your taste
is to much for my heart to resist
You cannot ever be close to me
Or I will cease to remember who I am
I will turn into the young, naïve girl
that you loved once again
You will wrap your loving arms around me
The choice I'm making will not faze me like normal
The hardships and mistakes in life will no longer exist
because the love of my life is here
But soon enough, I will realize my decision
I will begin to recover the girl I am supposed to be
I will have to let the warm, tender arms leave me
and watch you stride away with my heart again
I will embrace you for one last moment
enjoying the love that we have shared
And grant your parting wish with a tender kiss
that my lips will never forget
I will strive to make this kiss last forever
But too soon, you will pull away
I will walk sullenly to my home
with painful tears gently falling down my cheeks
I will lay my head down for a restful sleep
until memories of us overflow my mind
I will continue to wonder why I let you leave
while sobbing myself into a light slumber
The one thing that I want you to remember
is that I will never be able to stop loving you
You will always be the one who walked away with my heart
and can always make me fall harder just by looking into my eyes
To this day, I regret not telling you how I felt
I could have stopped you from leaving
The memories of us will haunt my soul forever
until the day I part from this cruel world...

(This is the revised version of a poem I wrote when I was 14.)
