it's NOTHING

It's Nothing

It's in my head
Underneath my bed
It's in the rain
They call me a code red
The label reads INSANE
He loves me, he said
I'm out of my mind
Doctor, I need my meds

I wish I could rewind time
Back into his arms
Everything he said was true
A straight shot to the heart
Why is everyone mad 
"saying I lost my mind!"
I'm so blind, crazy in love
What is love?

Crazy they whisperer!
Saying I kick myself every day
You were never real
Yet so Real
You were never real
Yet so Real

I stare at the wall
I stand still
I lose it when he does not call
Without him, I have no will.
Rocking side to side
Pulling my hair
Yelling, I Love You
It's not real, yet so real!

Rocking side to side,
With my eyes open wide 
You bounce me like a ball
Dropping me from the top of the hill
My heart stop beating for one second
Before that final fall
My heart did not break
His love is still there
I feel it every day
I love him, he loves me

His love is real, he's waiting for me
My love for him is real, 
As crazy as it may seem
I know he loves me still

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!

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
