leave me alone...come hold me near
run away...wait, I need you here
don't touch me...wrap your arms around me
open your eyes, oh why can't you see

i'm unraveling, coming apart at the seams  
nightmares have replaced my dreams
seems like i always end up alone
every time, i lose a piece of my soul

what's left of me now but a hole
hole in my soul, hole in my heart
i have only pieces left so cold
everytime we are apart

i can't breathe for the cold
icy wind that blows
through my hollow heart
with every breath i impart

seems as tho i'm fading away
like the dandelions in the breeze
i need to find a way to make
everything around me freeze

freeze til i collect myself
and put all the pieces
back together and 
once again have my

    I like the definition that says "Insanity is doing the same thing expecting different results" ... LOL ... your wonderful write here describes how I spent most of my life ... (More laughter) and I'm so grateful I don't have to live that way anymore! Excellent selection to be featured this week here at PoetrySoup. Congratulations, Tulisha ...
