I wrote this poem a while ago, and I think that it expresses a love without the cliche of everyday life.

Unsure how long I can keep this up.
The fake smiles,
Phony laughs,
It's all killing me.

How can I hold on,
when the hand I'm holding isn't strong enough
for both of the burden
we carry?

Hand and hand,
I think im going to walk.
Take a look at the sunset,
in his arms,
Hoping he will forgive me,
for all I've done,
To him... myself, and even you.

Im sorry,
But I can fix myself
If I don't know where im broken...
Will you help me??

personal meaning? from the heart...
reaching out for another hand to hold and give and take equally.

Yes, personal. I think I did a good job on that one. xD

Another interesting one.

Did you intend lines 2 & 3 of verse 4 to read:

"But I can't fix myself"
"If I don't know where I'm broken..." Just wondering.

Happy trails,

Ed Bradley.
