Say You Love Me

“Opening up your soul to someone, letting them into your spirit, thoughts, fears, future, hopes, dreams… That is being naked.” ~ Rob Bell”

If I’m Being Honest…

Some days I feel forgotten

It’s hard to let that out

It’s a tough road I’m going

A road I’ve always taken alone.

I wouldn’t choose this life

But it offers some protection

A sensitive soul like mine

Can’t take too much pain.

I’ve lived with it constantly

With his and hers and theirs

Shoving my hurt in box

To deal with another time.

When I just want to love and be loved

Why is it so damn hard

Being loved and not forgotten

Having someone to fight for me.

I try to pour out my soul again

Write poems, and with my words

Try to make them understand

Make them want to keep me close.

To be apart of someone

Like they’re apart of me

And always remembered

By all the little things.

Remembered by how I talk

By the movies that make me cry

How I’m never satisfied

With anything that I write.

The way that I’m so tough

Until you understand my heart

How I ask a million questions

To know who you are.

I keep dreaming of saving the world

With courage and love

And sometimes I get distracted

Just trying to save myself.

Lonely and tired, I wonder

If the same heart is still in me

But I know it’s in there

Even when I feel empty.

Love always turns me around

When I want to be someone else

When I want to be heartless

When I only want to forget them too.

About Me

– I am an ancient soul, in a modern body, with a futuristic state of mind.
