I am working on these poems. I think they’re missing something. What do you think?
I can’t seem to shake this feeling – it’s coming on too strong.
The loneliness sets in and I’m stuck realizing i miss you.
You left to follow your dreams, to let me live mine, but all I wanted was to spend more time with you.
I see your name in shining lights, crowds surround your every move.
Yet, I know how lonely it is.
I can see it standing from afar – the loneliness in you too.
Maybe we missed our chance.
Maybe it’s not over yet.
I hope my life doesn’t stop at you.
I hope that you’re not what I amount to.
I gave you my heart, gave you my all, gave you my love.
We didn’t work, but not for my lack of trying.
Somehow I knew you were still angry, but I don’t know what for.
I let you last out. I shouldn’t have allow it to happen.
It left me scared.
You left me.
Now i’m worried that I cared too much.
Because you creep into my dreams, whether I’m awake or sleeping, you’re always on my mind.
Years have gone by since we parted ways, though a message from you will sometimes appear.
It makes me melt, the apologies you send, the “I’m thinking of you notes,” and the pictures of foreign places I’ve never been.
But I have to fight the urge to answer you back. I know what might become if I do.
I’ll get caught up in you again.
