Is Anyone There

Surely your boredom has brought you here, 
It is no longer a necessity, this blathered relationship we share 
Your words are void of feeling—yes they make me want to scream,
Is anyone there? 
Truly, is anyone there?

You say you love me, and sometimes I believe you really do
But when I come to see you, your eyes are glazed
You are long dead, and still I grieve what you once were…
Now, you cry for me…
I apologize for your coldness, for your anger…
I have taken your pains and sorrows silently,
I have given all that I can…
What else do I need to do,
To reach you…

I am torn too, distant one
How could I tell you while you are bleeding so profusely? 

The psychology behind my feelings blow my mind
I sacrifice everything for you...
It is sick...because I cannot see what I need...
I feel myself sinking...
As I hold you up to the surface...drowning
Satisfied with your breaths...and observing my many deaths

I know you love me,
Though it gets harder and harder to believe
I am tired of apologizing for you, covering your scars
Together, we can heal them
Just promise you will stop disappearing

I have enough absent hearts in my life….

    Oh my, Laura. I am breathless by the time I reached the last line...with not a few pinpricks in my heart. I feel your lines. They grabbed and gripped, and wrung. "The psychology of my feelings blow my mind"..."Satisfied with your breaths...and observing my many deaths"...where do you get such word combines to express what you feel is beyond me. This is talent and feelings and emotions expressed from the inmost part of one's soul. You are very much appreciated, dear one! A 7. HUGS! Kim :)
