Lovers' Quarrel

The walls are closing in.
The walls are closing in.
Yet broken hearts will die much quicker
Crush me from within.                                 (THIS CAN'T BE HAPPENING)

There is no escape. 
There is no escape.
I feel drastic, torn and troubled,
hopeless in this state.                                   (YOU DON'T KNOW HOW THIS FEELS)

We don’t mess with fate.
We don’t mess with fate.
Someday we’ll be six feet under,
smothered in this hate.                                (DON'T MAKE ME BEG)

You can’t understand.
You’ll never understand.
Now you leave me lonesome,
PLEASE!!!!.... just hold my hand.                    (I LOVE YOU)

I never said I’m sorry.
I never said I’m sorry.
But I’m not one for compromise
if you won't say you love me...
So say it to this gun.                                     (RIGHT NOW DAMMIT!!!)
Say it to my gun.
I dare you look me in the eyes,
and tell me I'm the one.

    Interesting presentation of feelings that are being torn apart and we've all been there unless we have lived in a vaccum. Keep writing. Sara

    Interesting and suspenseful, Yoni. Too bad lovers' quarrels often end up this way. I can see this argument playing out. Total realism. Great write, Yoni! Love, Carolyn

    very powerful portrait of anger and frustration, the extreme fear of losing the one you love who wont or cant tell you how they feel - one way or the other.

    You sound a little like Edgar Allan Poe, in this one, Yoni, Moses

    A great piece of poetry. the flavour is very Japanese, especially in the repeated lines. I like that approach as it forces the sound and feeling of the statement. The side titles work well as if created a poem out of the other. A really imaginative work.

    Sorry for the confusion, this isn't a real event. It's sort of modeled after Nine Inch Nails 'The Downward Spiral' which put me in a slightly more demented state of mind as only Trent Reznor knows how to do...

    Yoni - You know relationships are not only the hardest thing in our lives they are also the most important in many different ways - your poem is deep with emotion and your expression of these emotions is excellent - i hope that you guys are able to reach a compromise through communication that enables your love to continue and grow - God Bless, MJ
