Y-O-U


Sitting here closing my eyes.Glad to be alive.I know I wouldn't have

met you.If I haven't changed schools.Not to mention.That I've dreamed

about you.I couldn't have asked more than to breathe life in.I don't

know what much more to do but just get my pen.Write down my thoughts

to release my pains.I know there's not much more to gain.I have you in

the back of my head.I can't get you out, all my walls are red.I had to

cut out my heart's beat.And I hand it to you when we meet.You dropped

it in the sand.I couldn't believe what I've done.Tried to give you my

hand.Just like that you were gone.I have seen many days.I have seen

many nights.I'm waiting for you to come here and lay.To lighten up my

cries and hold me tight.Stitch up my scars for they mark my skin.I am

tired of looking at my cuts.They are making my head spin.I am tired of

my own guts.I don't want to be here.I want to go.I know that your out

there.I'm feeling really blue and low.I think I'm starting to lose my

glow.There is only one thing I want you to know.I know that most of my

poems are worn and torn.But I don't care because this only pretains to

YOU.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This one was inspired by the lost of another love poem. Had to write another one just like it. It's not like before but it sums it up.

poet Li Po

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
