    I cried for you last night
    yet you did not see me
    but I felt your heart breaking
    tasted the tear that flowed from your eyes
    I'm here
    you're there
    yet I felt the pain that tortured you
    love slipped through your fingers
    and the agony has arrested you
    and I cried
    cried
    for I know
    what your desire is
    I cried
    because
    I wish to be the one to kiss your soul
    wipe away your tears
    be the soothing balm applied to your heart
    I cried for you
    knowing that if you were mine
    my every want and desire
    would be that of you
    thereby
    pain could no longer
    take up residence
    and disappointment's appointment
    would be cancelled
    yes I cried for you
    because
    you are tired of shedding the tears for yourself
    so I stand as a surrogate
    to bear your pain
    to struggle with your struggles
    I cried for you
    exchanging my happiness
    for your sorrow
    so that you would never have to feel the crucifying nails
    of rejection
    piercing your soul
    I cried for you that you may draw strength
    and heal
    become complete and whole
    empathic love
    spanning across the distance
    I gladly
    take every hurt
    I rejoice in every rejection
    I salivate at every denied love
    if it means that you shall have another hope
    of your soul being tied
    I cried for you last night
    knowing that the tears that I shed
    fell for you
    as well as for myself

    Arrested me is True had me on total lock down
    Such that all i could do was cry out for you

    That you've FELT my pain That you've Kissed my Soul
    Warmed my Heart, it's no longer so cold

    Stay with me a while for it's been a lonely road
    Yet you have paved it with an Energy that's Pure Gold

    You so aptly described that feeling of when one would do anything to bear the other's pain. I really felt this poet, great write.

    This was a real good write. Very mature in word usage and it seemed to be expanding as it went on to capture the full range of emotions that saturated the content.
