Restless Mind

Insecurity, a rising tide 
I try so hard but I cannot hide
It's eating away at the you and me
I'm losing my mind and losing my sleep

Don't you look and don't you touch
She's only mine, she means so much
Me and her, it must have been fate 
Without her, I suffocate

I'm waiting for the bubble to burst
Something to shatter this perfect world
Created by our love and desire
But I'm getting so sick and tired

So sick and tired of my restless mind
That makes me spew all these words so unkind
One day "sorry" just won't cut it no more
And leave me stranded on a lonely shore

Tenderness and words of love
Warm and pure like summer rain
But as you slowly walk away
Lovers' blues kicks in again

Tenderness and words of love
Warm and pure like summer rain
But I have really had enough
Of jealousy devouring me

    I can relate to this...not to the jealousy part...but the thoughts that do devour you...the poem I wrote similar to this is called "All Consuming Questions"...I feel you on this....Shauna
