    Blue
    Is the color of my soul

    Drowning into
    A window of emotion

    And if only you knew


    Trees catch the sun
    And capture the rain

    I finding that
    I don't want to fall in love
    Ever again

    With you

    Red
    Is my burning desire
    To be true

    The passion
    And the love
    I've engaged with you

    And right now
    Is so delicate

    I need you to bring

    Me the stars and the hope
    That once was ours

    I need you to know
    That a day never goes by
    That I'm not thinking of you

    I

    Love

    You

    So

    Why am I feeling so blue?

    Can you catch a glimse of me
    And can anyone find
    The root of the torture
    And the reason
    Why I'm hurting

    Can you hear my song
    Of laughter

    Turning into
    Tears

    Rejoicing
    Then reacting out of fear

    Can you piece together

    The images that I

    Let you take with you

    In your mind

    Have you ever
    Been in love

    And there havn't been a tommorrow
    You thought you could do

    Stuck
    In fustration

    And just pacing
    The floor of your room

    Have there been days
    When you look in the mirror

    And don't like the reflection that you see

    Have there ever been days
    You just wish you didn't exist

    Where there dayz
    You just felt ashamed

    Because those days
    You wallowed in self pity

    And end up doing
    Things you later regret

    To fill a void deep inside
    For a short moment

    And end up hurting people
    That don't need to feel anymore burdens?


    have you ever
    Destroyed your self asteem

    Then blamed someone else
    For disrepecting yourself

    And I can't begin to tell you
    The guilt I've faced

    And I have to confront it
    And tell you

    Desert Storm

    Thank you j'hiah

    You have caught me in a moment
    Where I wish I didn't just want to give up
    But I really don't want to do what I know I must do
    And it's hard
    To repeat same mistakes.
    Constant battle
    But I wish get beyond this eventually.
    Desert Storm

    Thanks for your reply
    Smpathy deeply appreciated and felt. Thank you.

    when the magenta rain comes
    and showers away the hurt and gloom
    you will then be able to smile and shine
    and gaze up at the moon...

    relief
    will
    come...

    When we face ourself...

    and all our insecurities, pains of the past & present
    we tend to not like our reflection due to inperfection...
    In this we shall find ourself...
    if we just take a deeper look...
    Heartfelt...
    Preciate ya Poet!
    Nice Scribe!!
