The One I Call Mine

August 22, 2010
When I’m about to break, I run to you
When I’ve made a mistake, I confide in you

When I’m sick of the world, I let you know
When I’ve fallen apart, you make me whole

When I see your face, my heart skips a beat
When I’m in your embrace, I feel so complete

When I hear your voice, I lose my focus
Forget the other boys; you’re the only one I notice

When my days are dark, I look at you
When my nights are cold, I dream of you

When I hurt inside, you remove the pain
There’s just something about you that keeps me sane

When I dance with you, I’m filled with smite
When I’m kissing you, I know I’ve got it right

When I’m all alone, I think of you
When we’re on the phone, I laugh with you

When I want to cry, you wipe away my tears
When I’m afraid to try, you take away my fears

When I just can’t breathe, I long for you
When I feel so weak, I find strength in you

When you say my name, I feel so secure
I’m in love with you, babe; of this, I’m sure

When I’m close to you, the stars are aligned
You’re the greatest thing I’ve ever had to call mine

This is an amazing poem. I admire the fact that you finished it even in a time where it was probably the hardest. When i read it i felt like i knew exactly what you were feelings. Great poem :)

I'm short on time, so I'll quickly say this: this is a very touching poem and I admire you for not feeling resentment toward you boyfriend for breaking up with you. It's very well written.
