    I loved the way
    you used to look at me
    so seriously
    yet so tenderly
    but so pointedly
    straight at me
    gazing into me
    devouring me

    transferring thoughts
    across a crowded room
    zooming in on my mental
    affecting my physical
    and creating chaos
    emotionally
    you had me
    the first time you ever
    looked at me

    If I could go back
    and capture
    that exact moment
    in time
    and make it mine
    I would
    transfer the image
    and decorate the interior
    of my heart
    repeating the pattern
    over and over
    until all I see
    is you

    it could keep me company
    on stormy nights
    when the rain falling
    like tears
    reminds me
    of the pain that loving you
    caused me

    in the night hours
    when I can't sleep
    it could float around
    in my memories
    to haunt me and keep
    my misery company

    in melancholy moments
    of "what if" and 'if only"
    it could make my heart ache
    and remind me
    that I'm forever lonely
    without you

    it could paint my world
    all shades of blue
    from the colours
    of the deepest sea
    to the clearest sky
    to remind me that I
    am only partially alive
    because you're not here
    beside me

    and whenever I look
    inside my heart
    and see your eyes
    looking back at me
    I will remember that we
    don't exist
    because my head
    not my heart
    tore us apart
    not willing to to take a chance
    on us~
    on love

    and that's so sad
    because it leaves me
    forever wondering
    and yearning
    for what we
    might
    have
    had

    i can't believe i almost missed this!! :) you have
    painted a beautiful & poignant peace about regret
    ...i was just talking to a fellow poet the otha day
    about love being something spiritual & emotional...
    so much so that it can't even be handled properly
    by the head... Only the heart & this was a very vivid
    reminder of just that. thank you for sharing... &
    excuse me for bein' so **** long winded!! :lol:

    itsallLove, chile.

    The words, the short phrases...
    Everything about this piece is perfectly written.
    I'm going to go and hunt for some more of your pieces.
