    I wiped my tears
    On my covers
    Through the night

    The taste of my tears
    Reminds me of your lover

    I don't want to go back
    But I guess

    It's true

    I can't get over you

    You gave me some room

    To try to figure out

    My heart says

    No,no,no,no

    I can't take it any more

    The taste of regret

    I wish

    I could get over this

    I wish I could forget

    Loneliness is sinking in

    So subtly

    I gave my all

    To you

    But I guess

    My all

    Wasn't enough

    Because you're were truly

    Secretly

    Breathing and living

    For something else

    I wish all my feeling was gone

    But I can hope

    Or dream for you

    With

    Getting caught up

    I can't get over you

    But I want to so bad

    A rode block

    And when I think of love

    I think of you

    You're the onely love I knew

    I wish I could get over you

    But I can't

    Dangling over my memory

    I need to think

    About this,

    I thought I was down

    To my last cry

    But I was wrong

    Silly how we get

    there's such a thin line

    between "CAN'T" and "WON'T" let go. Sometimes we are in that cycle of won't let go because we can't (mental is still so messed up)..and can't let go because we won't. (give up hope)....

    In the end, if love was meant to be ~ we are blessed with another opportunity ~ if not, we must learn to enjoy the memories and study the lessons, well.

    Feel you, feel you.


    ciao

    look ahead
    don't cry.....again
    travel
    out of your misery
    for i promise
    time
    will
    unravel
    the mystery of life
    of love
    for my God comforts you from above..
    trust.

    nfinite.

    A heart weeps

    ...>condenses into a solid and falls to the floor as rain>

    Tonight.
    The night hovers, silent and watchful over me.
    My eyes bleed in torrents
    My breath fights to leave me.
    The memories...
    of what was...the hope of what could have been
    Still haunt me.
    My heart moans "how can I go on?"
    Each beat, produces an ache that suddenly takes me away...
    Love wears so many faces
    It moves and appears in so many different places.
    Now it has left me and I just can't take it.
    And the night settles about me
    And my tears clot my pillow
    And suddenly I find peace
    Within his blessing of sleep.
    And there...
    Inside me
    Through him
    love exists...
    Whole and unconditionally.
    Through him I am strong
    With him I am never alone
    And together we go on...
    There will be another love
    A stronger love
    To call my own...
    Tomorrow.
