Oh, you love me so much 🙂

No? you love me no more? 😦

Search for me all the time 🙂

No, you don’t. Now, you’re gone! 😦


Why, oh why?

Did I hurt your heart?

Did I make you cry…?


I believed you needed what I had to give

You were on my side – forever in my team…


Did I give you too little?

Did I give you too much?

Was I being too silly?

Was I being too smart?


Was I being too proud?

Maybe I was too meek???

Was I too strong, or too weak??

Too bitter…?? Too sweet???


Was I too intense?!

Did I bore your mind?!


Is it about my tears? Is it about my laughter?!

Is it about ‘me before’? Is it about ‘me after’?!


Is it about my nose? Is it about my lips?

Is it about my arms? Is it about my hips?

Speak!!! Why don’t you speak?!?


Or Maybe…

It’s neither about what I am, nor about what I do…

Maybe it’s not about me at all – maybe it’s all about you.

Are you scared of “no”? Frightened of “not now!?”

Must the answer be “yes” every single time…?


You ask:

How many more days will I have to wait?

Why this long delay??!

The time’s not even “Now!” right now –

The time’s Yesterday!


Yet, when asked for help –

You begin to wail in Sorrow

It’s too early – not today!

The Time is Tomorrow.


Are you too strong, or too weak???

Too proud or too ‘meek’?

Are you…? Will you speak???

Your silence hurts…

Yet, it helps my freedom search

I begin to care less for whether you care…


If I hurt you somehow –

I would like to know…

Let me see through your eyes

Let me into your soul.
