    I never thought I would write about you again
    I thought my feelings for you had come to an end

    Then like a crystal glass breaking in the silent of the dark
    The shattering affect of hearing you seeped into my heart
    The seal
    That protect my emotion
    Is broken

    I thought it was over that there was an end
    But just hearing you
    Just hearing you
    Brought back those conceal feeling

    I like how it felt after you was gone
    feeling desolated, lonely
    Hollow
    discarded
    Broken hearted

    Did I
    Really like those
    Feeling

    Confuse?
    Yes
    Very
    But

    I will never let on
    How
    The scent of you
    Produce a chill
    Stir my soul
    Tickle my thought
    Provoke my heart
    To race non-stop

    How
    Your tone
    Made my knees weak
    My cheek flush
    Trembling
    Feeling the rush

    Yeah I will keep lying
    Laying
    In the night crying

    Lips and emotion
    Resealed

    Pretending How I don’t feel
    When I know you are near
    No I will Not Shed a Tear
    I will just keep away
    get away
    fade away
    Not looking back
    Moving forward
    To another
    Day

    MY MY MY !!!
    sometime the feeling of the past lingers but we know the future
    is beyond and ahead rushing from the emotions left upon the face
    and journey into the new beginning of tyme ......no need to pretend
    just let it go

    Putting on a happy face, but crying on the inside. I've experienced this gnawing of the insides that one tries to hide, and you conveyed this feeling so well. So nice to read you again....:)

    ...wow, the emotion cries throughout
    each stanza...
    hopefully that new day...
    will bring new love as well...
    Love should never hurt...
