Walls





















You told me,
Id never have to share your mind...
Eyes are fickle,
lust is cheap.
But your mind...
the far away places it goes,
when it goes,
so far away,
leaves me alone.

Darling,
look at me.
Hold my eyes the way you did,
when I had the answers,
when I was exciting,
when the fear of your heart,
never came so far,
as to be between us.

Im still right here,
desperately afraid...
And dont find shame,
in causing the tears.
Listen to my voice,
feel my hands holding you...

And
Come back to me...


come back.

  1. This is very good. Especially this:

  5. Oh you capture that loneliness, the longing that I felt was almost like a Dennis Hopper painting. Excellent work.

  7. Heartfelt writing. Sharing your innermost thoughts and fears is the ultimate in intimacy. I'm still learning not be afraid of that.

  8. Being desperately afraid is far to real. Your poem brings it up close and makes me feel that fear.
