    I'm talking to you, even though you dont hear me.
    Its you that I share my deepest thoughts with,
    Its you that understands me.
    There's something about you, I cant explain it.
    You allowed me to open up a part of myself, a part that I thought was lost.
    I never expected our friendship to come as far as it did.
    I never expected my heart to feel, to dream of a future.
    I forgot what that was like: to dream of a me & you...and not just a me.

    Maybe this is why the pain is so real.
    There is a song in my heart,
    I thought that you would be the one to hear it too.
    "Two paths once divereged, coincide. A liason on the Elysian Fields."
    Its what I wrote from my heart...it was my song to you.
    Is that when you decided to stop listening?
    Or when you felt secure and changed your "hyde"?
    Felt that you could take advantage of this new found security?

    I'm angry.
    I'm hurt.
    What did I do?
    Am I not pretty enough? Am I not skinny enough? Dark enough?
    If I looked different, would you have wanted me?
    I see other girls, other women, and I imagine would you want her?
    Is she someone you could love? Could you, would you have ever loved me?
    My heart is pushing you away.
    I can't think of a future, because now its just me.

    I live each day-
    Thoughts, conversations, people, places...life
    They remind me of you...& me
    What we used to share
    I realize, you are still very much a part of my everyday life
    My most intimate thoughts, my life
    You live within my heart
    I'm talking to you, even though you don't hear me.

    Hi nml26
    So true
    It is sad, when you
    try to communcate your feeling
    It's rarely heard by that
    special one who the song is for
    never wanting to let go

    I really feel connected to ths flow
    very nice drop

    Peace

    This was so well expressed, when all you can do is wonder why, and those questions go unanswered. Feeling this scribe.

    Thanks for the love. Its never easy realizing you love someone and knowing that they dont feel the same way. I dont know which is worse: to never love or to not be loved?
