All I've Ever Wanted

I wanna cry out loud, I wanna shed my tears
I wanna run away, run away from here
I wanna close my eyes and feel no hurt or pain
I wanna take a different path, my heart will not explain
I wanna feel the cold, dead cold I mean inside
I wanna see eternal fire before it passes by
I wanna leave my body and take only my soul
I wanna tell you how I feel but constantly I fold
I wanna feel desired without the act of lust
I wanna have relationships that's built only on trust
I wanna feel the love, the love that never dies
I wanna hear the truth for once and not a pack of lies
I wanna feel alive, alive and not alone
I wanna tell the world my existence will be known
I wanna walk around and never have to hide
The truth around myself is all I want is to survive

Written at what should have been one of the best
times in my life(marriage) but instead it turned out
to be a nightmare. I wrote this because I was feeling 
insecure and alone,confused and hurt, weary and afraid. 
I just kept asking myself and wondering, Could anyone 
relate to me??

    Tyesha, be assured that nearly everyone can relate to this! We've all been in committed relationships that sometimes disappoint. I hope you have found the strength to move on with your life. You have a gift for words, Carolyn

    Elizabeth Gilbert wrote 'Eat Pray Love' mostly as an escape from her marital nightmares. I think she can relate to you on many different fronts. I can relate to all the emptiness. Everyone relates to the emptiness. It helps me to at least know that much.

    Tyesha, you expressed your heart so well in this poem. I can relate in many ways to this. I'm sorry. It is terrible to feel that way through the actions of someone who is suppose to love you. It is good that you write about it. Helps set some of those feelings free. It takes strength to express these feelings so openly. Thank you for your knd words. GBY! Love, Robin

    This is such a tearful poem of desperation. It is so painful to read, as my heart goes out to the one who wrote it. I hope you have recovered from those terrible dark days. God Bless, Tyesha. ~ Carrie
