My Senses

You don't see how I had felt
With you in my arms my heart would melt

I loved you with my eyes
It was my bittersweet demise
Angel on the out
Demon on the in
You wanted to hurt me from the start
You only wanted to destroy my heart

I loved you with my touch
I thought of the warmth of your skin, too much
It gave me a rush
Every time I brushed your skin
But I didn't see
Who you were within

I loved your voice
From the moment I heard it I made a choice
A choice that I'd try to give my all to you
But in the end, it was all too good to be true

In the end
You tore me apart
My world was rocked
I was shattered
Had anything you said
Ever even mattered?

    Reading that almost made me cry...It'll all get better eventually. Just have faith.

    Matthan, this is heartwrenching. I hope it is not about your life. But as with life nothing is smooth all the time. There is someone for everyone and we never know when they will enter our lives. Thank you for sharing your poetry today. Love, Carol
