How can you smile the way you do how can you not miss me like i miss you how could your words have ever been true the coldest thing is that you dont miss me like i miss you do you want to see inside me all the dark places where i try and hide you know im sorry for what i said what i did you dont sleep but its not from thinking about me or we or what we dreamed or how we lost it my consolation my comfort when i sleep is that i know that one day soon i wont be cut this deep only the strong yeah right gone to soon do i ever cross your mind when you say goodnight to the moon i want you back or out of my mind for now i cant find a moments peace but i can see the other side bitter yup sweet im not how do i build bridges when i cant break down these walls of broken promises and failed attempts i just want to hear you say just another day i wish i never ducked your calls i wish i never cared at all insecurity is never sexy you celebrated my complexity then you left me and im more alone yeah i said it i regret it and i dont care who knows or if you see this all i know is i miss you
They listen when you need to talk Talk when you need to listen They know your darkness Let you know theirs Without judgement and expectation You can talk to them about how you see things They don't get angry or anxious when you disagree Trust you enough to say what they really think Read tweets and novels Never make you beg or grovel Won't allow it Remind you that you're better than that Lay some of their burden on you Let you behind their wall Feel welcome behind yours You feel each other with heart and mind Even if you don't explain yourself They get you You get them These are the ones that make life worth living Make you love to be alive Reflect you to you Teach and learn Some days the lead singer Some days the band These are the ones You can count on one hand (c) Ron Kennedy
wow - this is beautiful - heartfelt - my fav lines areReplyDelete
how do i build bridges when i cant break down these walls of broken promises..
Sad and beautifully well done. Excellent writing Theron. :) Love the new blog set up, it's looking fantastic!ReplyDelete
I was going to mention the same lines as Claudia notes above; don't we all ask that question? The emotion comes across even as the language remains controlled. I like how this is both personal and also universal.ReplyDelete
This is incredible my friend. I can absolutely feel the longing of a love gone away and I love the way that you expressed it. Beautiful. Love and Light, SenderReplyDelete

I sense the longing in this. Very honest too.ReplyDelete
A bitter sweet poem. I love it!ReplyDelete
"I want you back/or out of my mind..." The past is a trap where you gnaw your foot off to get out some days...but there's a little reptile in any survivor and one day it grows back--sense you already know that in this poem.ReplyDelete
