Jlove

Inspired by a note passed to me in class by Johnny Love

my scars are only hidden
because they are mine
they belong to me only

my heart however
is a struggle of late
playing tug of war
with one that i promised it to

my time for myself is precious to me
as i love myself so interminably
i wonder if maybe its more than one should

creases and in-betweens are most comfortable
for the ones that find solace in themselves
as i find it
when im tucked away

i feel nearer somehow.

way cool-just beautiful

It's funny I am in the midst [always] of writing a song that begins by talking how our scars are really tattoos with better stories.

thumbs up

nice job

well on one hand i liked just mailing it to you, but on the other, i thought, no way is this inspiration going unrecognized by all, lol. I love hubpages! I keep meeting people worth conversing with! That sounded bad, but really its the truth.

Well it is wonderful to find people here that i feel understand me in a misunderstanding world. Darker shades of light letting go of the torturous pain inside.

this was great, a great tribute, im sure theres a lot more behind this, i love how you speak of loving yourself, and hiding your scars, there is an extent to where u may love yourself too much, where you are selfish, and always put yourself before others, never lend a helping hand, theres no nobility, no honor in that. but how can anyone truly love us if we cant even love ourselves, and vice versa.

my heart however

is a struggle of late

playing tug of war

with one that i promised it to

i love that line. reminds me of a friend of mine, who was with this girl for years, he had made her a promise, and they broke up recently and he basically feels that way i guess, at tug of war with himself, with his heart, and his promise.

and im glad you posted this on hubpages rather than just emailing it to johnny love, because i really liked it.

Another short and to the point poem. Powerful is a word I would describe it, but unable to mark it that way, because "powerful" isn't an option. So I left it here in this comment. However, I did mark it awesome and beautiful. :) Thank you for sharing your inspiration. :)

okay mr johnny love of jaded love...you must be extrememly tired. all of your messages to me tonight have had spelling errors and that is slightly uncommon of you. i find it very touching however that you came back to read this again. this piece was inspired by something you said to me in email. it started a stream of pieces that will hence forth be called "shaddowed" and yes, i spelled it exactly as i wanted to.
