Conversations With No One

The argument I’ll never make,
the chances that I’ll never take,
the battles that I’ll never fight,
are dying in my heart tonight.
The conversations never said,
The thousand books that won’t be read,
the desperate points that won’t be made,
down into silence they will fade.
And with it I will sadly go,
a part of me you’ll never know.
The awful truth you’ll never hear
is buried deep beneath my fear.
But hey, this kid’s not made of stone,
just look and see, I’m flesh and bone.
I need approval from you now,
and don’t worry, I’ll show you how.
Listen to me, (you’re not all-knowing),
this honesty won’t stifle growing
of some small dream, in some small place,
by some small chance, I might just chase.
I used to know what that dream was,
but now I’m not sure which side does
have the merit, where am I right?
Dreams or sinking out of sight?
But I guess we will never know
if I keep quiet, although
catastrophe could happen fast,
and damage could forever last.
I don’t have to worry today,
who knows, it could just go away.
But I don’t buy that school of thought,
it would be nice, but I think not.
The argument I’ll maybe make,
the chances that I’ll maybe take,
the battles I forever fight,
are dying in my heart tonight.

this is a part from your poem -->", (you’re not all-knowing)," <--, one thing when you put commons to say something that can be put into paranthesis you only need the commons you don't need both,. I'm sorry if that doesn't make much sense, but only usre one or the other, it can be the same thing, (likehow i just used commons right there thats what i mean instead of parantheiss),.. buit other than that, I really liked this, no actually i loved it:)

That was amazing!!!!! You commented on my poem "I Know" [not the best of my work by any means] thanks by the way, so I decided to read yours. This was great, I really liked it. I love the emotion behind it. There is so much passion that was put into this poem. It was a true masterpiece.

Wow. This was amazing. You had commented on my piece (thanks) so I decided to look at yours and... well... That was amazing! Truly,truly fantastic. I hope someday I'll reach that level where I feel as comfortable with my poetry as you seem to be with yours. Keep writing. That's not a request, that's a plead.
God bless,
