I write the lines I taught myself to you

 

Yet the pain isn't through

 

Just when the pen slows to a crawl

 

Wth the words I dare to use of all
 

The ones that you have taught me

 

The ones that made me feel free

 

 It's felt lke many long years

 

But's it's just you playing at my fears

 

You cast a perfect shadow on the paper

 

I can't catch in you in this little caper

 

I'll fade with each day's sunlight

 

Hoping to somehow fix this blight

 


But  love can leave a stain

 

For even dark hearts know love's pain

 

You steal my only hope and make me stay awake

 

Another night I'll coldy shiver and shake

 

It was just a lonely thought

 

But maybe with you it was all for naught


Thoughts of doubt this night

 

Racing around reminding me of my plight


The living  poem  only I can read

Writes the lines that tell how I bleed
 

In blood red ink I sign my name and seal the midnight with a dry tear

 

It was never meant to be I fear
