Ghost Of the Past

The emotions..
That I dare not express..
The tears that i shed internally..
The opportunities that i overlook daily..
The smiles as we pass..
The thoughts of you being mine..
The pain that flows throughout me as I watch you with another person..
The desire for you to be mine..
Or even.. the lust..
The one chance that i hope to possess..
if only just once..
The mind within your body that i long to change..
The hug that i will never accept..
The lips that I will never grace..
The past was never good to me..
But you are the present..
You are the future that I want..
The future that is haunted by the ghost of the past..
The same past..
That was never good to me..

...wow...give me a second to stop crying haha jeez word for word you have completely pulled what I felt and put it on paper. I could never in my life capture that sinking feeling the way you have in this one simple poem. I love it. Though I have to say that this definately isn't something someone can pull out of thin air but rather bases on experience. It's beautiful.

everyone sez that love hurts, but thats not true. its things like lonlieness, Rejection, & Losing someone that hurt. In reality, LOVE is the only thing in this world that covers up that pain and makes us feel wonderful again

one of my favorites definitly :) great job
