"About YOU and ME" is a very old poem that I wrote when I separated from the Love of My Life/my husband then knowing that It's ALL OVER now....This was in 2002.
I found this piece of jewel hidden some where and thought of publishing it as my first piece of work on Booksie.com


........................ABOUT YOU AND ME…....................

I WAKE UP IN THE MORNINGS
JUST TO RUN AWAY
MY NIGHTMARES KEEP CHASING ME
I JUST CAN’T FIND MY WAY

I’M CAUGHT UP IN AN ETERNAL MAZE
I’M LOOKING FOR A GUIDE
SOMEONE WHO WILL HOLD MY HAND
AND TAKE ME THROUGH THIS RIDE

I NEED TO BREAK FREE FROM HERE
I’M BONDED BY THESE CHAINS
IT’S MEMORIES OF ME AND YOU
OF WHICH ONLY MEMORIES REMAIN

YOU’VE TAKEN EVERYTHING FROM ME
ALL I’VE EVER HAD
I’M LEFT WITH ONLY EMPTINESS
I CAN’T HELP FEELING SAD

WHEN TIMES WERE HARD AND DESPERATE
I HAD EYES FOR ONLY YOU
NOW YOU LEAVE ME HIGH AND DRY
BUT YOU KNOW ITS NOTHING NEW

I’VE SEEN THE BEST AND WORST OF YOU
THERE IS NOTHING THERE TO CHOOSE
CAUSE EVERYTIME I SEE THE BEST
THE WORST KEEPS COMING THROUGH

BUT NOW THAT I’M LEFT WITH SILENCE
THERE IS NOTHING THAT CAN BE HEARD
THIS IS WHAT YOU’VE ALWAYS WANTED
YOUR SILENCE SPEAKS FOR THOSE WORDS

YOU KNOW I’D LIVE AND DIE FOR YOU
THERE IS NOTHING FOR ME HERE
I’M WAITING FOR THAT MOMENT WHEN
DEATH WILL TAKE OVER

MY HEARTS BROKEN TO A MILLION PIECES
NOTHING BINDS IT TOGETHER
MY LIFE IS IN SUCH A DISARRAY
I WANNA SLEEP FOREVER.

I COULD SLEEP AWAY
WITH THE GIFTS OF MISERIES GIVEN BY YOU
BUT NOW I FEEL
WHY SHOULD I WASTE MY LIFE FOR A GUY LIKE YOU

WHEN ASKED WHAT WENT WRONG
I COULD AND WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO SAY
WE TWO WERE NOT GOOD TOGETHER
COZ WE
BOTH KNOW THAT WE WERE MADE FOR EACH OTHER

I KNOW IT DOSENT MATTER TO U ANY MORE
NOR DOES IT TO ME – NO I CANT LIE

I WONDER NOW
HOW WILL I LIVE WITHOUT YOU
I WILL COME OUT A WINNER
THAT’S MY PROMISETO YOU

WHEN I WONDER ALSO
HOW WILL U LIVE WITHOUT ME
THEN I KNOW, U NEVER FELT ALL THIS PAIN
REASON YOU NEVER LOVED ME THE SAME

WHEN THINKING ABOUT YOU
IN THE NIGHT AND IN THE DAY
I FEEL LIKE A FOOL COZ I KNOW
YOU HAVE YOUR OWN WAY

A PROMISE I MADE TO MY SELF
NO… I WILL NEVER LOOK BACK YOUR WAY
COZ I WLL BE FAR FAR AWAY

HAVE A GOOD LIFE
WITH WHOEVER YOU WANNA STAY
WILL ALWAYS BE IN MY PRAYERS
THAT’S ALL I CAN SAY TODAY…ABOUT YOU AND ME …

i won't lie when i say that I HAD TEARS in my eyes...and one question Popped in my head "WHY"?

Don't we deserve a better and tension free life too....

and women are made so strong by GOD which men often under estimate....and time has come to just stand tall and be strong....action wise...

i am so proud of you and count me in ur HUGE FAN....
