    We talk serving
    words of emptiness
    to one another
    drinking tears to
    wash down that lump
    of "things just don't
    seem the same anymore"

    indigestable in nature / pain
    is / to digest is to
    even-t(you)-ly make non
    existent and to hurt seems
    like forever so this lump
    sits in the middle of our
    live's pulse and yet we
    are so empty

    I don't know why the caged
    bird sings but I do
    know why I cry............
    so before our love completely
    dies let's say no more

    just
    goodbye.

    i know the lump's there
    baby please don't despair
    don't leave me alone
    give me a chance to atone
    i'll be lost without you
    i won't know what to do
    let me fix what i've broken
    no more words will be spoken
    only the feel of the thrill
    of that lump as it's broken
    down
    into
    tiny
    little
    pieces
    feeling it no more
    i'm not saying yes
    so my baby can walk out the door

    beautiful BlakVerb ... simply beautiful

    :heart:

    Destee

    Queens,

    The beautiful sisters of Destee. Thank you for the comments, ya'll know a brother enjoys them from first letter to the last. Keep me in mind when my book finally drops (actually i'll be sure to let you all know :rolling: )

    Pain is....

    N2, where's that dang Rolaid a brother needs it? Actually a poem will do.

    Afri, Thank you sis I have learned that to cry is to be reborn.

    GA, I'm glad that I move you. However, I'm trying to get you to faint.

    Destee, Web Site mogul and "poetess" your words are as beatuiful as the site itself. thanks for the scribe.
