    You created a dream
    In my daydreams

    Of love
    But you didn't tell me
    It was only temporary

    You created illusions
    That made it seem
    As if everything was ok

    You created Images
    That made me seek your face
    With the notion that
    Good things were going to come my way

    You made me promise
    To you
    In my heart


    Things I wasn't sure of
    Things I wasn't sure I could accept

    Out of my desperation
    I hinted to you
    That I needed a lover
    Wasn't very sure
    But I want to love
    And be nurtured
    I wanted someone to be kind to me

    And in return
    You turned me on
    Fulfilling every hope
    And inciting every fear

    I wish you
    Could have
    Seen what your motive was

    Because it doesn't seem fair
    You did everything to make me believe
    That love was there

    When in actuality
    It was only temporary

    Just empty promises
    Never knowing that
    You would not feel the passion
    Of destiny
    That my heart wanted to desire

    You looked past me
    With a blind eye
    And you're so unfair

    Because I gave you all I had
    Inside of me

    Now I'm left holding on
    To me

    Now I'm depressed
    Looking everywhere
    And still can't believe

    That what I wanted to be
    Didn't want me

    What I wanted
    Didn't want me

    Didn't want me
    Didn't want me
    Didn't want me

    In the end

    Desert Storm

    As hard as it may be to accept at the time you are going thru it, there are some people you are meant to lose........yes, life may have been different had they remained....but different doesn't always mean better.....loved this poem from the first line to the last. keep flowin.
