IT'S NOTHING

It's Nothing

In my head
Underneath my bed
It's in the rain
They call me a code red
I am labeled INSANE
He loves me, he said
I'm out of my mind
Doctor I need my mind
Can't go back and rewind
WHY WAS I MISLEAD?
WHY YOU LEFT ME BEHIND?
Everything you said I misread..
Man love is blind
I've completely lost my mind
WHY IS IT SO HARD TO FIND?
WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO ME?
What you did to me is so unkind
It's so unkind
HOW COULD YOU LET  THIS BE?
I may be crazy!!
Very crazy they say..
Seeing I kick myself everyday
You were never real!!
You were never real!!

I stare at the wall
I stand so still
I lose it cause you don't call
Without you I have no will.
Rocking myself side to side
Pulling my hair saying it's not real, 
It's not real!!
Remember with my eyes open wide 
How you took me up that hill
You bounce me like a ball
Then you told me we needed to chill
Then you let me fall
My heart stopped and stood still
Yet my heart has not broken.
IS THIS A JOKE?
It's not for real.
These feelings I can not hide
I still love him so I see no big deal
It's the sane part of me that has died.
I tell you his love for me is real.
His love for me is real.......!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Love can drive us insane, sometimes! We tell ourselves that love is real and true. Yet, in our hearts we know it is not. This is very deeply expressed and almost too painful to read. Another excellent poem by you, SKAT!...Thank you for the kind congrats on my poem. I appreciate it very much!

    SKAT This is very deep and emotional. Full of heart and power. You took the reader on a journey of love, heartache, pain and loss. Hugs

    I really like this poem...I often feel this way about chocolate. No guys in my life. :)

    I've known 2 men who made me feel this way [sigh] the first one I so "loved?" I considered suicide when he broke it off with me, the 2nd one I had the strength to ask to leave...I'm not sure "we/human beings" really know what we want? or they meaning we have for love? All I know is I'm not sure feeling so strongingly about someone you loose yourself is a good idea/or even healthy? "You bounce me like a ball" you need to do more of this..this is a metaphor & a GREAT ONE! Light & Love

    your repeated line "its so unkind" is a powerful line. you may be crazy, but the most "crazy" ppl, know the truth.and if you really put that into thought, you'll see this is true. your emotion says it all, he has to be only hiding his true feelings for you. but it's only "right" for him to take some kind of revenge on you for something..right? and when he's done, either he will speak, or he stays silent.i do hope he speaks. .for you both ~Always&Forever Lynette

    Wow, intense. This poem reminded of a short story called Nona which plays with a remotely similar theme. Every capitalized word rings in my head. Thanks a lot for sharing.

    Some say there's a fine line between insanity and insanity; Normal and abnormal. A lost love is enough to put anyone off the deep end. love, Susan

    What happened to you also happened to me when my former finacé had left me many years ago without saying anything or even giving a reason. And we had been together for seven years! Enjoyed this poem of yours today, Irma! And thank you for your well understood comment on "Todtnauberg". Have a nice day!...Gert

    oh wow, Irma this sure is packed with emotion! Can definitely feel it right up to that last line of yours! Hope this isn't based on life though-- nonetheless a very gripping write as always! -- nikko :)

    Irma, maybe you are not getting my soupmail. I could not read the one you just sent me the other day. It came out really weird. I hope it was not anything important? Thanks for commenting to my blog the other day about movies. How many do you see a week? LUv, Andrea
