    eyes to see

    I can say one thing
    your expectations are too high
    you can't see me
    when your mountain is at an incredible height
    you cry for love
    and share your pain with me
    but you have yet to find me
    and I have been here
    as long as you have
    but I listen as you speak
    and you have found this favorable
    1 am or 3 am it doesn't matter
    I pick up the phone everytime
    if one were to ask
    why it is I keep it up
    it is because I have the eyes to see
    that to be someone like me
    I have to learn from someone like you

    I've had friends who did'nt listen, past relationships that did'nt, and these types only prove how little they care about you by not respecting your feelings as well. It's all about them. The experience does make you a better individual, but enough is enough :D Believe me they are not deserving of someone like you. Find another listener like yourself. I did. You'll be much happier.

    Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.

    T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
