u hope

it is funny how it starts.....
all over again...

first for a few hours
then many hours

not sleeping
not dreaming
not remembering....

what you did
what you thought
what you had

you still try to 
remember when
the last time 
you were hurt

slowly resigned but
not completely 
you keep waking
up alone; someone
has shut the dooe

you think you hear
the whisper of ?????
feel that you know 
someone is looking
in on you

you are trying to
convince yourself
that you
know someone
one cares

is that what you are
awake for?????

are you watching 
and waiting to 
to see if someone
is watching you
and if someone
cares for you?????

maybe...?.you know.... 
somewhere in the bottom
of your fickle heart
that is not what is 

you turn over and you
start all over to try 
and dream someone

    I can relate to that. I think that happens when we give our heart to someone and it is not returned,,,,,or someone that we love has hurt us, and we lay there in our hurt, hoping that they will come and make it all better for us.....Well done Janetta
