The poem is below.



Who has given you the license to love me ?
I had always been the queen of me
but somehow I got lost in a crazy dream
in my mind I dream you 
I see you 
even think I may love you
but that could never be
someone else is holding the key
but somehow this is taken me back 
to an painful past that is getting me off track
I know my own frame of mind
and I know never to let love at my heart
I love once before and that old pain is still 
is knocking at my door
I don't need no more rain 
this is making me feel insan
Who given you the license to even look at me ?
moreless to love me,
I know love should never be just words
So I must let you go 
because words is all I can give 
because my heart is learning to forgive 
but it hasn't forgotten the pains of yestrdays 
so my heart is still craving the one of long ago.
