You're Like An Earthquake

When we were little
We dreamed that we would meet.
This crazy feeling I get inside
Seeing those beautiful eyes 
Stair into mine.
Then I remember those words 
You said to me,
That we could never be
I feel like I'm in the dark 
Just waiting to see what
Happens next.

For who will come and save me?
I am the missing piece to your heart and soul.
With people telling me to move forward.
But I cant see my life without
You as my future.
When the wheel is spinning
Towards the word never and now
This is the feeling I cant escape.
I stained my skin with the ink
Of true love and heart break.

I dont want you to leave me
With all these words left unsaid.
Trying to cherish this moment
Here with you.
But the only thing I have on my mind
Is you and those words.
All that I need is the truth,
Do You Love Me Or Not?

    great poetry but you need this to be written to you. and you need to be spinning the wheel with never now or always. be the one who choses not the one let down or used. chose the one who choses you then you can handle the truth. john

    Thought provolking Free Verse, interesting to read. I get you grew up together, but she does't love you the way you want. Sometimes our lifelong friends are just as important. You can catch the rainbow but you can not keep it. Good work. JudyRiley
