Everything in life Fades

I tried my best to ensure my changes for you

I hide the real me all of the time

Only sometimes it slips and bleeds through

My insecurities are out in the open

I laid them upon the table for you

to see if would guard them or hurt them

Should have expected less from you

and I know that everything I get

I brought it on myself

Realizing god has a sense of humor

He made

enough said


I am a broken child god left on earth

I just happened to have found you

Thought you would make me whole

But thats just untrue

Somehow I can't live without you

no matter what you say or do

my heart belongs to you.


And I realize my own enemy

is me

Been fighting this war for years

Those voices in my head control

Won't let go

You will always fail

just do as your told

I promise I won't give in

But in cases like this

I don't even know where to begin

I tried, I lied, I cried

Everything for you

I would die If I had to


I give up

on the quest to perfection

It is eating my heart up

faster than an infection

Consuming all I have left

Can't just live in the world and get by

without trying and falling

And I fell far

And your my star

when I look to the sky all I see is you

and I cry

because there could be someone better for you



I am a broken child god left on earth

I just happened to have found you

Thought you would make me whole

But thats just untrue

Somehow I can't live without you

no matter what you say or do

my heart belongs to you.

Out of Love's hurt springs this magical poem but there is hope in this heart and dreams in those eyes. Well done.

Looking for perfection and having too many aspirations is part of loving someone. Some get fulfilled, some not. When I go to sleep, there is a magical person on my mind, and when I wake up that person is still on my mind...it does not have to fade...the only person who can forget is you... I could let a magical person fade on me ever...my heart would never let that happen...

Your poetry is beautiful and always makes me think, Chrissie. Thank you. :)
