My candle burns on both ends,
It will not last the night;
But Ah! my foes and Oh! my friends it gives a lovely light.


‘I’ll see you tomorrow
I miss you already
Give me one hug
To keep me warm this winter’s night’
Lie for me once more
Give me promises you can’t keep
And then all I do is foster hopes that aren’t real
Is this your idea of a fantasy?
A fairytale, an old night’s tale yarn?
Vicious and fierce yet too delicate to touch
Bring me flowers, bring me gifts
Bring me the entire world in your fist.
Do I wait for you to come?
Are you a promise that does not exist?
Am I imagining it all?
How can I tell reality from dreams that aren’t even mine;
But tell me once more
Just once more:
A lie, a broken promise, a figment of fiction
Make my day with your untruthful lust;
Because I love the way you lie.

Even though I wrote this poem way before the hit song 'love the way you lie' my Eminem and Rihanna, I'd still dedicate this to them as they portrayed what i felt just right!

Thank you :)

The few who understand empathy misuse it. So I don't see the point of that at all.

Empathy does come easily to a few. Reminds me of my teen years... needless to say: WELL WRITTEN!

Everything makes sense if you think too much about it.

I do not know what to say.

Hmm.

Empathy doesn't really come to this easy normally.
