    There are nights where I can feel everything all at once; where everything that was hidden in the sun, comes alive during the night. And when I look around my room, the colors of my soul are being displayed, and there’s a strong love that fills the air. And then I think of her smile, and the way her eyes are joy to my life…and then,

    I begin to write
    Writing about the pain, about what I hope to gain
    Pounding on this keyboard just to prove to myself I’m sane
    Some people think Depression is a sign of weakness but to me it means you’re strong
    Cause you’ve been carrying this load for far too long
    And I find myself looking at photos to hold on to what you knew to be true
    Because the moments in them never change but the people often do
    And she was good to me by teaching me in order to love someone else
    First I must learn to love myself
    And I loved the way she held her head up high
    Because darling, someone as lovely as her should only carry happiness inside
    There have been dozens of women who took my breath away which may be hard to believe
    But there has been only one who reminds me that I need to breathe
    And I can’t move on to something new
    Cause every thought I have somehow leads back to you
    Yet accepting what my life has become is rough
    Because I gave you all of me, but even that wasn’t enough
    Can you see me trying to hide all the darkness flowing and growing inside
    The laugh to give the appearance that everything is fine and you still have your pride
    While trying to hide all your problems with a smile
    Do you know it that I’m broken inside and it’s been a while
    And I’m just to afraid to let someone help me because I’ve been hurt to many times before
    To the point where I just can’t take it anymore
    So I must save myself
    I can’t count on anyone else
    So I tell myself I’m beautiful, but not in the way you might think
    Some days I refused to taste sadness even when that is the only thing I had left to eat
    And now I had to close my heart and leave you outside
    Because loving you was leading me to commit suicide
    The most pleasant way of self-destruction was to love you
    And I guess I have to give that up too
    Missing you became part of me
    So for me to stop missing you, I must stop being myself entirely
    But I can’t Imagine a life filled with so much pain
    So for me it’s a lesson learned for the next love I gain

    The sound of the rain makes me miss her even more than I usually do. While normal people are all wrapped up in blankets and their lovers arms I am just wishing she were here. It makes me miss her because while the rain is keeping me up she is at home fast asleep. Oh what I’d give up to be in her arms tonight. The sound of rain is making my heart ache because it’s like the sky is crying. And I understand how the clouds must be feeling since I am crying too.

    Im trying... but every subway that comes next, I just don't want to get on... The heart wants what it wants... and maybe someday I'll run across someone who hold a brightener light and outshines this love of mines. But until then I'll be on the Platform...

    Thank you for taking the time to comment...
