for stephanie

this is not what i wanted
this pain in my heart
all i do is wonder
is there pain in her heart
this dark cloud i'm under
follows me day and night
and there's something inside of me
screaming somethings not right
this is not lonliness 
but something new
this is how i feel
when i cannot be with you


(inspired by, "Better, The Devil You Know")

    You are always inspiredwhen it comes to great poetry that rips the heart out. Another poem that says love could be kinder.

    John, no reason,,, to feel confused...love is love... either you get hard, or BITE hard... anyways, I say, go for it. Even if it was you know who inspired this poem... Stephanie, probably see something in you the devil put there...lol.. does that make sense to you. maybe she has a dark-er cloud above her... and doubt will get you no where... so, go with both mix feelings,,, you only live once... besides, maybe you can heal her.... maybe she is God sent... xox...pd
