Alone with you

by TheDarkCloudBehindthePoet   Feb 6, 2013

Emotionally broken and love sick,
Let me count the ways,
Depressed and angry,
I have only myself to blame,

How did it come to this, was it my only choice,
Scratching and clawing to save one thing, her lovely voice,
Whispering in my ear, saying everything will be fine,
But in reality, she is just a figment of my mind,

Comforting me as I sleep, holding me tight,
Resting her body on mine, this feels so right,
Kissing my scares, rubbing them against her face,
Saying how she adores me, and how I'm great,

Taking me for who I am, never making me change,
Loving who I am, even if I can be a little deranged,
There is a part of her that makes me feel safe, normal even,
I don't have to pretend, or give a ridiculous reason,

But she is not here, only in my head,
Not really kissing me goodnight, never in my bed,
You're really just a nightmare, a dream I'll gladly pursue,
Nightmare or not, I'll forever love you.

-Christopher Green

      Thank you Maple Tree ;) this was a new realm that I started writting about. Usually my poems are depressing suicidal themes, but when talking about love, especially when its real. I just put all my heart into one word, overflowing and running over. Thank you for the love Maple Tree ;)
