Having a rough day? Place your hand over your heart. Feel that? That's called purpose. You're alive for a reason. Don't give up♥

I really want to tell you
But I'm afraid that I might
Please don't let this moment
But don't let me waste your precious
And let me fall away before I

We walk on red roses
Now lifeless
We talk of memories
Now hopeless
We wonder what lies ahead
But we can't see

So tell Me
What brings me to my knees
Me stop the bleeding
It's too much
To take but
I can't Let go

Darkness is thick
An inky substance I can touch
Strung in curtains around me as I reach for you
But please, darling
Tell me what I'm reaching for
Because I no longer know why you're even there

I really want to tell you
But I'm afraid that I might
Please just let this moment
I won't let you waste my precious
I'll let you fall away before you

I don't want to say what this one is about...
So guess!
I'm hoping for lots of critique (I haven't written poetry in a LONG time, so I'm rusty, and this was about a 10 minute piece.)
So thanks!
Shout out to Raeee:)

Is it about an old friendship that died and you miss or maybe want something more from? I really love it. You're not rusty at all!

I'm not a perfect person, I make a lot of mistakes... but still, I love the people who stay with me after knowing who I really am.~

If God brings you to it then he will bring you through it.

This is a very, very intriquing poem that I enjoyed very much! I really enjoy this style of writing and can't wait to see more poetry from you! :)

"Darkness is a thick, inky substance I can touch, strung in curtains around me as I reach for you.."   Favorite line! I want to write it on a page a million times!   I just... Love it! SO much depth, character, structure, inspired!
