Array ( [sid] => 132612 [catid] => 1 [aid] => mick [title] => Ambivalency [time] => 2007-03-12 01:04:59 [hometext] => if only [bodytext] => My former lighthouse, guide me through
Will I get over this
The way you said that people do
Through bitter emptiness

Or am I stuck, for Iíve become
Addicted to your presence
Immune to every word you say
Intoxicated by your essence

Youíre the air I breathe, the touch I feel,
The taste I know so well,
The image I see, the words I voice
The flowers that I smell

The pain I feel, the scars I see
My thoughts throughout the day
The piercing feeling in my heart
The things I cannot say

It didnít used to hurt like this
I used to be OK
It seems that every Today
Is worse than yesterday

Iím in a bind, but itís all on me
I did this to myself
I left me open for all to see
And what I got wasnít help

Iím torn you see, for what to say
Iím headed for the coast
Youíre ready now, is what you say
But twas yesterday I needed you most

Virulent to trusting now
I donít know what to do
For everything that I attempt
Wonít bring me closer to you.

My former lighthouse, guide me through
Will I get over this
The way you said that people do
Through bitter emptiness

Or am I stuck, for Iíve become

Youíre the air I breathe, the touch I feel,

This was well written and well expressed. I liked this poem and I can relate to this in a way. I like the the last two stanza's the most but I like the whole poem as well. Very well expressed.

Take care
