THE QUESTION
MARSHALL THOMAS

In the book of Psalms it says "Being honest is like a kiss on the Lips" and girl right now I must pour my heart out 2 U, this is the one I was born 2 write, your being born says it all, I am glad I am on this earth 2 see your smile, your rapture, your beauty that is all graffiti. U are my thoughts, my taste, my smell and my dreams, I have 2 be honest, because if I wasn`t I would feel like I was betraying U, I wish we could live together for a 100 years, make love together while u are crying tears for joy and girl if we do make love a child would be born of course a boy. U see girl my mind is complex but only with U, my heart is pure but only if I can be with U!

4U
Evelyn

I am a silent spectator
Clapping whenever you make a run.
A window shopper
gazing, admiring.
Separated from you by a pane of glass.
I like the way you are confidant-
but not so much.
I like the way you fit in-
yet stand out.
The way you wear your clothes.
The way you smile,
the way you leave your hair unkempt.
But most of all-
How you never speak to me.
look at me-
or even know me.
And the way I can look at you
and know that you and I can never be
~*~

Grass, Butterflies, Water and the sea
U mean so Much More To Me
Trees, Air, Sand and a Star
None Of these things measure up to what you are
This World, Our Moon and up Above
Still Nothing Compared to Our love

I have a question 
by Chad Reed

Why do we do the things we do
With all the things we know
Why do we claim weíre lost in life
When we know where to go
Why do we choose a straight lined path
Then vary from its course
Why do we marry deep in love
And end it in divorce
Why should I put in extra effort
Or go that extra mileÖ
Why do we soak in all the pain
To where we never smile
And why on earth, while being hurt
Do we stay Ďtil the end
And swear each time it happens that
Weíll never love again
I feel like I should be alone
With all these questions asked
Iím facing an uncertain future
Dragged down by my past
Why do my fears and tragedies
Cause me to go insane?
Why donít they just get washed away
Within a cleansing rain
Why do we find that itís so hard
To pick up and move on
Itís like you donít know what you have
ĎTil itís already goneÖ
Why do we fall in love again
Or so thatís what we claim
And why do we clutch to our fears
Will this one end the same?
Do we read it from magazines?
Is it society?
Maybe I just want someone
To be wild in love with meÖ
Why do we say, ďÖthereís someone out there,
Just for me and youÖĒ
It that the problem? Cause itís
Everybodyís point of view?
Iíve been on this stage many times
In fact, 3 times beforeÖ
But Iím hoping Iíll get back on
And stop at number 4
But though I canít escape the old
Cannot predict whatís new
I can find someone to love again
Could this person be you?

Passion Burning
by Destiny Dennis
 
             Love is a passion burning deep within your heart.
              The kind of love that makes you not want to part.
             The love that wants you near,
              And makes you feel as if there is nothing to fear.
             Every time you think of each other,
              There is happy memories of one another.
             Their gentle touch,
              Makes you love them so much.
             Their warm body holding you tight,
              Makes your insides feel as if they're on a flight.
             Love... A passion burning throughout your heart.
              How about a brand new start?
             Though new beginnings aren't always for the best.
              That's why you put them to the test.
             Then, if you know in your heart, that this love is for real,
              You've ran into the best deal.
             TRUE LOVE!!!!

Daddy my daddy i miss you so

Daddy my daddy why did you go,
You left me here to wonder why
Why you left without a good bye
Why they took you away from me
I sit and ask how could this be,
How could it be that your not here
Here to wipe away the tear
the tear to which i shed for you
Without you here what do i do,
What do I do to see your face
What do I do for your embrace
What do I do to see your smile
Oh its been such a long while,
Its been four years that you've been gone
Without you here I feel I cant go on
Go on without you by my side
Go on without you as my guide,
Go on without you here
That was always by biggest fear
The fear that now i have to live,
And to you my heart I'll always give.

                      LOVE
                ALWAYS & FOREVER
                Your little girl

WOULD YOU FEEL MY LOVE
Harini Hariharan
If i could see past the cloud above
And reveal unto you my love
Opening up to the stars above
Would you feel my love?
 
If i could show you precious things
Like the beauty of saturn's rings
Give to you all my precious things
Would you feel my love?
 
If i walked for you a million miles
And swam across a thousand Niles
Held you close through all your trials
Would you feel my love?
 
I only know what's grown inside
Feelings i could never hide
I see our future if we tried
Poets could write about us.
 
If i laid down my life for you
Lived not for myself but for you
Captured distant stars for you
Would you feel my love?
 
If I took you close in my arms
Presented to you all my charms
Carressed your body while in my arms
Would you feel my love?
 
If i committed my life to share
Gave all to you my one so fair
And we became forever paired
Would you feel my love?
And then poets would write about us!!!

   Feelings of the Heart
   By: John Miller
This feeling I'm getting is perfect indeed,I don't think my heart has anymore want or need.When I look in your eyes I see to your soul,and that you feel as me that we've reached our goal,of finding true love.I can't stop the thought that you were sent from above.
Our love seems as tight as a well fitting glove.I've never felt like this before, I thought I knew what love was before I met you.When I stop to think that if I might blink it could all be a dreamas if it might seem to good to be true that fate has brought me to you.As I'm sitting looking, wondering if it's something I lack,a simple thought of you puts me back on track.I think I'm beginning to understand how the heart is in command.We look for love with our minds,trying to find the things we think we need and really dont.True love is pure happiness and security but most seem blinded by the minds obscurity.If you open your eyes and push away your fears,you to will shed away all your tears.You say how do I know when I've found true love,when you look at each other as if they were a dove.We speak without words when our eyes connect, almost as if our hearts intersect.It's hard to believe how our love has transpired,because it was you where these words were inspired.You see me fo!
r me I see you for you that must be why this love feels so true.Now I know my search has ended, because of you my heart feels meanded.To say thank you from the bottom of my heart is just the start of this man's gifts. You bring out the best in me that must be why it's meant to be.When I look in your eyes I see the desire to keep the kindling bright on this true loves fire.I stop to think of the joy this life will bring,so for you my love, I present you this ring.To seal this moment in perfect bliss, let's start this union with love's perfect kiss.I know that our love will last for generations, even through life's trials and tribulation's.The love you give me inspires me, you see the fire it sends through me.I don't the you understand the scope of my hope for us to be together from beginning to end.For it's you love that will always mend me from today and tomorrow, no more days with this lifeless sorrow.I know we were together in a life before this, always beginning with our love with a kiss.

you are here
just another Monday
screaming nightmare
but when i let go of the world around me
i wish i were a bird
so that i can fly away
a wasted emotion
both beautiful and dangerous
drop by drop
i find myself
breath into me
and when we do it again
blink your eyes
and sometimes you have
real life

Tragic
By Rosalee F.Price

You like to make me cry
those damn insolent tears.
The weary wavery of thy heart.
The curious intensity of thy intentions with fears.
 
Tragic are your motives.
Tragic are the agendas you have set forth.
Hidden like the Lost City of my heart.
Tragic like your soul's worth.
 
You wonder away with your emotions.
Then you wonder away with my heart.
Do you even care a little?
Why did I let you start?
 
Tragic like a thunderbolt from the stars.
Tragic like the loss of warmth in your arms.
Hidden like the evidence of the stolen treasury from my body.
Tragic, the way you hide like a rabbit in misery.
 
Forget the way I love you.
Forget how much I want you.
Let this die down.
Let this be untrue.
 
Tragic like the feelings I carry in my heart.
Tragic like the breakdown you have caused me.
Hidden away from this heart of mine.
Tragic the truth you owe to misery.

"WHY DOES IT HURT?"
by Cathy Pisano
 
I donít love you
I never did
So why is what you did to me
Hurting me so bad.
After the first day with you
        I felt so happy
        Nothing could ruin my day
After the last night with you
        I knew it was over
        I felt used, unwanted, cheap
        I wanted it to be over
        But,
I didnít want it to end
I hate dealing with relationships
I do not want to deal with one right now
Yet at the same time,
I do.
Confusion and stress,
I canít deal with that
I have enough of that in my life already
The pain can sometimes be too much to deal with.
He hurt me so bad
And I didnít even want to be with him
I donít even know what I felt
Iím still confused about it all.

MY BLANKET

Stroking a plumped ego,

BREATHE
Kim N. Contreras
 
Headache starting
Stomach twisting into knots
Over you
 
You throw your punchlines
With cruelty
And I detest you as much as I love you
More even.
 
But I can't move
Wading in the glue of our history
I can't stand the thought of the mess
If I tried to get out.
 
Much easier to lie next to you and
Breathe.

To Whom it May Concern
Sandra Duquette
To whom it may concern, my life's not black and white
So much grey in between I feel it's never right
I know you think I have it all, and assumably I do
No matter, I find myself alone at times, dreadly missing you
I lay upon this hostile bed, this room so unfamiliar
you have a girlfriend, I know, you've said, but how strong's your love for her
When together, hugging tight, do all your worries wash away?
I know you kiss and talk at night, but do you miss every day?
When she says those special words, does your heart skip a beat?
Is she the true love for you, of which you'll one day meet?
I have such mixed emotions here, of jealousy and hate
For the anonymous woman, who took away my soulmate
I tell you though, it's tough right now
The pain I must endure
Physically I'll be just fine
But emotionally, there's just one cure
To be held by the man I've never met, the one I dearly love
The man I could never ever get enough of
But that will never happen So in hell that cure will burn
I'll never meet the one I need To whom it may concern

My Darling Other
Natasha M. Williams
There has never been two
that were one
as surely we had ever
There has never been an other
loved by one
as I have ever
If ever one was so happy
than was thy other
Thy no one can compare
with thee as no other
I cherish thy love more
than thy clouds do so cover
or most surely
My Darling Other
Nor ought thy love from thee
like a crying mother
Thy love is so rare
as a lake with no color
IF thy heavens shall fall
like a tear down a wall
Then while thy love lies deep
down in my lonely soul
I look to see a shimmer of cold
I reach out so far
to feel thy soft touch
That thy other must part
far from thy heart
to oh so catch
Thy most beautiful breath
Then back together
as we were one
as surely we were meant to be
And never to part
as it shall break
Thy whole dearest heart
as there has never been two
that were one
Than surely it is truly me and
My Darling Other.

~*~

I want to lobe you so much with my mind, that my heart gets jealous.  They would start to argue and my eyes would jump in.  They would say that my eyes were the first one to see your beauty.  Not just the way when she smiles she makes others smile, but the smile that's a turn on or the smile that makes me forget all the issues I have n life and just force on that beautiful smile.  Now the argument that started with just two on the love of you, turns in to four.  My mouth decides to speak up.  It says that it was the first thing to talk to her.  In that conversation, it expressed the feeling the other three couldn't, like I would to talk to her for hours just to hear the sound of her voice.  It would tell her how it seems that as soon as she walks in the room that my heart stops, my mind goes numb, and I couldn't take my eyes off of her if I wanted to.  Hours turn into days, days to weeks, weeks turn into me not being able to eat.  All I can do is thing about seeing her, tal!
king to her, giving her my heart.

love is not my best subject

people feel different things.
to have loved and lost pulls a different string.
looking into eyes that you have cared for and cherished
to only find them looking back with hatred and anger
to hear the sweet sound of a voice full of emotion
to a remaining silence that move between lips
to feel warm arms wrapped around you making everything alright
to a bitter cold breeze flows in the nights air
to taste a soft warm kiss on a winter night
to have the sun be the only touch to your lips
by the end of the day you have to face the beaten news
he's gone.

To My Heart's True Love
       By, Jessica Gwillim

To my hearts true love,
         It has been so long
since I have last been graced
by your beauty and
heard the music of your smile. 
But not a minute goes by
that my deepest heart of hearts
does not remember the
brilliance of you. 
There are times I swear
I can feel your loving arms
around me,
or your full lips upon mine. 
I close my eyes and all I can see
are your gorgeous eyes staring into mine,
showing of all your love for me. 
I long for the day when I will again
be kissed by your sweet mouth,
and will finally be home again
in your giving arms. 
To my dearest,
I send this simple letter to you,
not only full with my words,
but also with all my love
and hope that soon we will be
together again.

Give Me Your Hand, Then Lead Me
Sheila A. Putnam
Give me your hand, then lead me...
Take my heart, then love me.
I will follow 'til you stop walking.
I will love you 'til the end of time.
I will turn my tear-filled eyes to you
Even when you are the one who hurt me.
I will hold your sweet head to my heart
And cradle you....just because.
I will whisper 'I love you',
Even when I know you are sound asleep.
I will laugh with you, cry with you,
Share all your joys, all your sorrows,
All your dreams....and all your tomorrows.
As long as you'll have me
As long as you'll cherish me
As long as you'll hold on to me...
I'll be here loving you.

(To Elvis Presley)
Daniella Mikkelsen
What bright a day when you were born,
but the loss of a son your mama would mourn.
Just an ordinary boy in Memphis Tennessee,
but soon a rapid rising star you'd be.
An Elysian voice you used to sing,
but didn't know what it would bring.
Fame and fortune then came one day,
but you didn't change in any way.
An important man you'd now become,
but still you thought of everyone.
For 22 years your life was like in dreams,
but reality isn't always what it seems.
Lonesome hours, days, months even years,
but you always tried to hide your fears.
Then you left us, the darkest of all days,
but we'll remember you forever and always.

How you make me feel
Mickell Goreham
   Do you know how deep your words go? Through my heart to my pain. My eyes filled with sorrow and sympathetic shame. I hate your smell, your confidence, your smile, your fake ambitions, and your promises to yourself to reconcile. i hate when you look at me and tell me you don't care. i hate when you neglect me knowing i'm in a deep amount of weary despair. How many more times can you turn from your reality? how many more times will you abandon me? your hands have scarred my cheeks for life. your ugly breath and sickness. why can't you just confess; for your habits and your ignorance has left me feeling alone and helpless. I hope your guilt can drag you from dismay. I'll go to bed crying tonight. alone. astray.

Is 3 a Crowd?
Andrew Mills
Forbidden fruit we dare not touch
Bite the skin I need it such
My thoughts of you, no not they the other
Kiss me in my dreams, my forbidden lover
As I sleep at night my eyes close to shut
The wrong person beside me my life in a rut
You are the one that moves me beyond this
Far from the now, are eyes catch to kiss
I wake in the morning and walk the same route, day after night
Shouting so silent, will you hear our plight?
Indeed I feel this cant go on
'Tis you my love, in your arms I belong
As I see the mistakes I have made, there are more to come
Empty lies in my heart, I will succumb
Arid and empty this desert creek
My life, my voice, I cannot speak
Will we sit and ponder week after week?. . .

~*~

Iím sitting here thinking about you, the one,
         And what we could have been, what we could have done.
         Since you left I havenít been the same,
         But what keeps me going is your solid name.
         See, I remember our times on the phone,
         But since your gone, Iím all a lone.
         There is no one to talk to, and no one to share,
         But on the other hand I really shouldnít care.
         For all my life all I wanted to do,
         Was fall in love with someone like you
         It took me a while to set my self-strait,
         But I still feel lonely and I put up my gate.
         I loved you and you didnít love me,
         I still donít know why I was too blind to see.
         Five years from now I will probably see you again,
         Maybe seeing you then will help my life begin.
         Youíll be happily married with kids in fact,
         So Iím not going to be around to hinder that.
         Anywhere I go, any job I do,
         Iíll be thinking about every good thing
         Iíll be thinking about my Shanon
         And how much I love you.

A good friend is hard to come by,
A good friend is hard to find.
A good friend is that kind of someone that
offers you peace of mind.
A good friend is there to lean on, to call
when times get tough.
A good friend is there to get you through
when the water seems too rough.
A good friend knows your troubles, what
worries you have inside. 
A good friend is that person in whom you can confide.
A good friend doesn't care about gifts, or
what they can get from you.
A good friend knows that the greatest gift
is a heart that is good and true.
Good friends are hard to come by, this I've
said before.
And I want you to know that you're the best
friends that I've had come knocking at my
door.

(ALWAYS THE BETTER MAN)
By-Tyrone Elson
 
Once again, I must hold my head in shame,
Even though what has happened, I must take the blame,
I befriended the enemy, made him my best,
Never thinking heíd give me, my most painful test.
 
I bet heís now laughing, at home to himself,
About how heís destroyed, everything Iíve felt,
My trust he took, and twisted around,
Until only confusion, is what I have found.
 
So many secrets, were given to one,
With that much to loss, I must turn to run,
Heís put me in a position, where I must doubt myself,
Where is my out-lit, where he used to help?
 
For what heís done, he must be proud,
Of being the one, that took me down,
Broke my spirit, where no one could,
Crossed the lines, where no one would.
 
So much deception, in one little deed,
Left me open, for my soul to bleed,
What have I done, to deserve this pain?
What did he win, what was his gain?
 
The touch of a woman, is what he has,
Heís taken my place, and the future I planned,
The family I seen, he seen as well,
And in an unseen battle, it was me that fell.
 
Now in my place, the sidelines I see,
He is now everything, that Iíve wanted to be,
Where everything he has, is everything I need,
He knows this true, on my depression he feeds.
 
He has systematically, destroyed my life,
He took my wrongs, to make him right,
I opened the door, he walked right through,
Even though my undying love, for her he knew.
 
He took the only thing, in my life I wanted,
And before my eyeís, he painfully flaunts it,
But to prove my loyalty, Iíll remain quiet again,
And Iíll step back, because heís my best friend.

"When we said goodbye"
tiffany loxton

 

I was standing there waiting for you
i didn't know what to say or what to do
i saw you comming close
i just stood there i was froze
thinking you were just gonna go
what you did i didnt know
you came close and put your arms around me
i wanted to keep you forever so badly
you are my everything
i see you and my heart starts beating
you let me go and started to walk away
i wanted to get on my knees and pray
i don't want to lose you
but that's exactly what im gonna do
we have to move apart
its that time in our lives when we make a new start
growing up means leaving you behind
i wish this whole life i could rewind
making you be there with me forever
then i know my life would never be in danger
well its over now
i'll learn to forget somehow
its gonna be so hard
i know my heart will forever be scarred
i said my goodbye to you
there was no need to argue
i'll never forget
loving you i'll never regret
i didnt cry
when we said goodbye
*december 15 2002*

~*~

i thought we had something going
you seemed to be so true
my life was complete
i had someone, you
then you got bored and left me behind
with a shattered heart
 and tears in my eyes
i couldn't believe it
was it a dream
i soon woke to find it was reality
now i sit and wait alone without you being mine
wondering what i should do when all i can do is cry
now please explain to me
how you could get bored with someone like me
when i loved you so much and you said you loved me
did you ever really love me or was that a lie
well no matter if it was true or not
i did love you
and i still do

PUPPET STRINGS
Allison Leonard

Stuck here on puppet strings
everything dictted, never free
surrounded by people, yet I'm alone
sometimes I wish I could just be gone
to fly away or disappear
would they notice, would they care?
Alone crying, surrounded laughing
I;m torn and drowning, people are passing
I;m suffocating, mind whirling, ever faster
Out of control and lost forever
I cry out, the echoe rings
And still I'm stuck on puppet strings

Break me

darren flood
You can break my heart
And make it my fault
you can make me feel ugly
You can make me destroy me
and still its my fault
 
I didn't want to shout today
but baby I will
You may have broke my heart baby
But you will NEVER break my will
 
so try to destroy me, kill me
And try to make me weak
And I promise you
you will not succeed
 
so I will stand up now baby
And I will walk through the door
And watch me as I turn baby
Cause one day
This face is gonna knock you to the floor

JUST FRIENDS
ANDREW DEVINE
 
It is in the small things we see it.
The first time you got to drive,
Moving along the highway.
When they made you feel like an alien,
you drank their humorous acid and concealed it.
 
Later,
If you faced death of bombs and bullets
you did not do it with happiness,
you did it only with a shield of sadness
to cover your heart.
You did not think about the weakness inside you
though sure enough, it was there.
Your courage was a small grain of sand
that you kept swallowing.
And if I saved you
and died in doing so,
Then my courage wasn't courage,
it was love; love as simple as a rose.
 
Later,
If you have endured a great despair,
then you did it alone,
getting a transfusion from the fire,
picking the scabs off your heart,
and and you wrung it out like your favorite shirt.
After it had slept awhile it had transformed into an angels wings.
 
Later,
When you face old age and its final stage,
your courage will still be shown in the little ways,
each spring will be a knife you'll sharpen,
those you love will live in a pool of love,
and you'll bargain with the calendar
and at the last moment
when death opens the back door
you'll put on your slippers
and stride out.

NEED ME!
Danielle

I want to be the face you see when you close your eyes
I want to be the touch you need every single night
I want to be your fantasy
And your reality
And everything between
I want you to need me
Like the air you breathe
I want you to feel me, in everything
I want you to see me
In your every dream
I want you to need me.
I want to be the eyes that look deep into your soul
I want to be the world to you
I just want it all
I want to be your deepest kiss
The answer to you every wish
And all that you ever need
I want you to need me.
Because I need you
More than you could know
And I need you,
To never, never let me go
And I need you
To be deep inside your heart
I just want to be everywhere you are
I want you to need me
Like I need you.

Because I am a friend
By Robin Duffy
 
If you laugh, I will laugh with you
If you cry, I will cry too
If you call me, I will answer
 
Because I am a friend
Thatís what friends do
 
If you stumble, I will catch you
If you fall, I will pick you up
If you disappear, I will search for you
 
Because I am a friend
That's what friends do

~*~

Love is as soft as thy feather of a dove,
Givin only by thy heavens above,
Do not ignore thy passion for love,
For love needs attention to grow,
If not will simmer down below,
Respect thy love for you,
For love is made only by two.

With out you.
          BY: Stephen k. britton
  With out you I would be lost in time, full of heartace, pain, and sorrow all the time.
  With out you I would be lost in my self, with guilt and trouble and have nothing else.
   With out you i would have nowhere to go and nowhere hide, All i would have to  do is sit down and cry.
 With out you I have no dreams, they are lost in all entitery.
  With out you I have no life, all i would have is pain and suffering through the night.
  With out you I would want to die,I would end the pain in the blink of an eye.
 With out you I could not go on, for my love will always grow strong.

THE ONE I LOVE
Ronald Turgeon
                      The one I love is lovely
                      as a red red rose in Spring
                      I cherish her and care for her
                      more than anything
                      generous to a fault is she
                      with her undying love
                      and her eyes softly sparkle
                      as bright as the stars above
                      her smile is as bright as the sun
                      on a beautiful Summer day
                      she loves me and I'm grateful
                      in each and every way.

Yesterday In Paradise
 By Elfin
 
                         We played the music
                     But never heard one sweet note
                         We reached Nirvana.
 
                         We melted as one
                       Together drifting away
                        To our special place.
 
                         And when we came back
                     Wrapped in each other's warm arms
                          We knew paradise.
 
                         Now my love has gone
                       And memories linger still
                         Dreams of yesterday.

~~Seasonal Overture~~
~^*Lady Syndra*^~
Standing within natures golden fields of serenity
 Tasting the fulfilling grains from the bread of life
Drinking from the succulent  fermented vineyards
Harvesting the seasons rapturous manifestations
Absorbing days illuminist dogmata of simplicity
 Alleviated within the taciturn nights of solitude
Becoming one within natures seasonal overture

INVISIBLE GIRL
By: Rachel Leah Tedmon
 
Invisible girl, where are you today?
I thought I saw you but you ran away
Invisible girl, I know you're there
please come back to me, don't be scared
 
Invisible girl, I know you need attention
everybody does if I didn't mention
Invisible girl, show yourself
this mental state is no good and won't help
 
Invisible girl, answer me!
please, oh please, it's you I must see
Invisible girl, this isn't what you want
I know it's not what you want to flaunt
 
Invisible girl, am I right?
or am I trying too hard to get you in sight
Invisible girl, I want to help you
let me see you just once to give me a clue
 
Invisible girl, why hide away?
there's a world out there who knows not your name
Invisible girl, just one time tell me
who you really are and who you want to be

Talking parakeet
           By: Amir Ridoy
 
You are great, when you laugh all on a sudden
thousands of white cranes fly in the cloudless
blue sky leaving behind the green paddy fields,
the youth of sun swims in a river of afternoonÖÖ
 
You are a river of afternoon, when you look
thousands of fishes swim to a mystery,
I am only the hunter of words, the words
leaving one by one through orifices of hypnotizationÖÖ
 
You are orifices of hypnotization, your soft moonlit
shines like the water of Volga to Ganga, pages of history
shinesÖNandy, Bartshaion, Kallan dreamt to make your lips smiling
and I am searching for thousands years for talking parakeetÖÖ
 
You are talking parakeet, you can tell fluently what I want
today, what was for thousands years; like a meritorious girl who
recite an essay to her school teacher!

There's a place in my heart,
where you use to be,
there's a song that brings tears to my eyes,
thinking about you and me and how we use to be.
 
There's a place in my heart,
where I use to keep the memories,
of how we'd talk for hours on end,
about the craziest things.
 
There's in my heart where you use to be,
But you shattered my heart into tears,
and left me alone only to wonder why.
 
There's a place in my heart where you use to be, that i tried to fill with other meaningful things,
But you made it impossible to fill,
you left a dreadful scare filling me with tears.
 
There's a place in my heart,
where you once stayed,
but you stopped caring like sun shine on a rainy day,
the roses are blue the violets are red,
and there's nothing in my head but you.
 
There's a place in my heart,
filled with someone new,
all because i stopped dwelling upon you!

Abigail
