Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding.
Khalil Gibran


I don't remember the color his eyes were,
and barely the sand in his hair
All the lines of his face are
becoming muddled
I have no picture to remember
My young lovers face

Only the charcoal pictures
I drew of his artful grace

He was different from most others
Always a smile on his face
Until one day he revealed
the pain lying deep within

Where is my lover?
Will he always be lost
Or might I see him one more day?
In heaven will we cross?


The author's comments:
I met Freddy in a hospital. This past August he killed himself. He was the closest thing I ever felt to love. I don't understand why he left me. I was inspired to write this piece by my friend Shannon, who unknowingly reached into me, and made me feel again with her piece letters to Cameron. And admittedly those feelings were not pleasant. But they were good to feel.

   It feels a little broken up and the flow is a little slow..but other wise the over all feeling was good. It needs more description, other wise it is just a standard poem about a boy. It needs something more striking.
