“Don’t leave me”, I whispered as I clung

To him, my desperation a rotten disgusting

Odor that turned him away even more.

“What do you expect”, my accusing cruel

Mind taunted back at me. Everyone you

Ever loved were never able to love you

Back. And those that truly love you, you

Are destined to never love. You are that


If Only


If only you knew
The passion that rages within
The yearnings that raise their voice
Offering no escape
I want to run
I want to fly
I want to be free
If only you knew
The struggles within my heart
The beating as it raises its tempo
Urging me along
To move
To go
To be
If only you knew
What moves me
What causes my heart to skip its beat
What makes me feel alive
To live
To breathe
To love
If only you knew
