  • Didn't I tell you, what I believe... Did somebody say that....that love like that won't last? Didn't I give you all that I got to, give baby?


From the world so cold
Frozen, hellish and ridden with pain
None so greater could be
Than when I look upon you

If only I could stop loving you, then I would
But I'd be a soulless corpse
Denied my life because of my feelings for you
I cannot understand what enslaves my mind to you
Whether it was the softness of your lips
Could it have been the power between your hips

And yet, like the highest mountain peaks
I'm frozen to the depths of my soul
How can I love you when I Am beyond it
And my back is turned to you and walking into the Sun

My mind is so lost
I try not to love you, think of you and want you
I sure as hell don't care about you that way
And yet, this lust confuses itself with love
And the memories we once shared
I try not to
And I fail miserably everytime I get a chance
I can't bring myself to hate you
But... I won't love you, I can't love you the way I once did

Why am I falling back in love with you and yet
Yet I am somewhere I belong and in Her Bed I realize
that I love Her more than You
Yet in my midnight dreams, it is You that haunts me like the deceased
Though my children grows in Her Womb, I cannot stop but think
of the truest things I was denied in being this fucked by my emotions

So now, in the desert of the mind, the wintry hells of the soul and
disillusioned trappings of the heart
You've caused me to fall for you again
I know that I can't be hurt by you
but why is my thoughts drifting to you?

Like Hurricane Katrina, you have all but destroyed me utterly
Leaving very little but the spirited remains She collected
So why am I shaking this way like a nervous whore in church when
... When I remember your kisses
Why am I so morose to let go of you
That I am shaken because inside, I still love you

Deep... Very deep. This is one of the deepest things that i have read in a while and I can feel your heart in every word. Keep up the good work.

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

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