    I awoke because
    The rocking feeling was
    Making me nauseous.
    I was soaking wet from tears,
    Or had I been caught in a storm?
    You were lying next to me,
    But you did not feel close.
    Your body turned away from me
    As if your mind was insisting
    That my existence be ignored.
    In my insanity
    I weep.
    We use to be so close~
    I STILL REMEMBER…
    You were the one that
    Taught me what I never knew
    About LIFE, about LOVE~
    And you were the one who
    Made me a woman,
    And promised you’d never give up
    It use to be different
    I SWEAR!
    But my trail of breadcrumbs
    Disappeared.
    And I can’t find my way back.
    Don’t even know how I got here.
    Trapped in a place
    I no longer wish to be in.
    My bleeding heart tells
    The story of Sadists who
    Never learned
    That Love’s pain is unequaled.
    And he brings the pain,
    And keeps it coming.
    It hurt until
    The numbness wore off,
    And then loving him just hurt.
    And I started to see myself
    Fade away in his eyes,
    Then my body was forgotten.
    Now I lay with him alone,
    Body shivering,
    Drenched,
    And cold.
    And he sleeps.
    Doesn’t have a clue
    What he’s done to me…
    I was a fool to let Love happen.

    :(

    ...and love is one of those feelings that sometimes 'controls' us -- though sometimes good, there are other times when those feelings don't 'feel' so great either!!

    Felt this piece...
