The tears run far

You make me angry
I'm upset
Your words make my heart skip a beat
And for once have a little bit of hope in you and me
I would have sailed across the sea
Your words so convincing
Your lies seemed so true
Words no action
Saying is not doing and that’s the truth

Was it all a dream?
Did the conversation ever happen?
You don't act upon
Make me sad
But mostly mad
You’re so freaking frustrating
Just shut up all
I hear is your bullshit
Spill the beans
Next day and change your mind
Just save your time
Leave out the testify
You make me think so hard
To the point where I crumble
You don't see the reasons why
The tears run so dam far
Don't you remember?

You have no freaking clue what this did to me
Anger runs through my heart
You make it so dam hard
To get on with my life
Would you remember me?
If I slipped away from my destiny
You leave me struggling to breathe
Post up all over
My face on minds
My words becoming prostitution
You leave my heart racing
Then stand alone
Waiting for the bus even as it goes by
You leave me holding a pillow at night
To my face so tight
So no one can see what this caused me
Make me feel crazy

Over you till you speak
Walking up a slope
Don't go no where 
Every time your there I slide back down
Into the pit of disappear
Just burry me in the ground
Leave me there, with shovel in hand
Put me down like old Wilson’s dog
Let me rot away become part of the tree I lay beneath oh so peace fully
Until you come back and breathe me in
And there's no escaping this corroded town I'm in

    what I like most about this poem is the free riffing you allow your imagination...those "leaps of association" ..."my words becoming prostitution" are what separate good poetry from the rest...keep it up! leap Kayla! LEAP!!! jimbo
