Poetry- Even when I fell, you kept me from falling apart

Updated on March 3, 2012

You knew me back then...

There was a day and there was a time-

That I wasn’t sure I could handle letting love in my life.


You knew me back then-

You knew my heart,

And even when I fell,

You kept me from falling apart


Not sure why you did it-

I am not sure why you recalled my name,

I do know that you showed me,

That there is more than just one wrong and one right way.


You may not even realize that I am still me inside,

I may have changed my shell,

But I am the same girl frozen in time.


Even when I do not show it,

I hope you feel it in your soul,

That I am only me-

When I know that you close.


It may not make any sense,

I can’t even explain it to myself,

But I still need you,

Even after years of creating my own hell.


You don’t always understand me,

You sometimes think I am insane

You see the words I write,

And you say that the past keeps me in my chains.


Truth is I need these words

But don’t take my words to heart-

I use them to sort through the confusions in my life

They are not intended to tear you apart.


They are merely words of hurt-and fear for who I was.

The nervousness that I feel-

For not fitting in with others within this world.


But when I feel safe,

It is when I feel you.

Reaching out for me,

Letting me feel something that is truth.


Happiness is love-

The love I have for you,

And I hope that you never doubt I hold true to the words; I love you.

      Thank you Sharyn's Slant- I appreciate that. When we love we love with all of who we are... people always describe it as a feeling, but I think of it more as in the way that we live. Thank you for the comment and for reading and for watching :)

      mckbirdbks... de-ja-vu? lol... this has been posted in similar form before- not the poem, but the video :) perhaps your de-ja-vu stems from there...regardless- thanks for the comment :)

      Thank you Marcy... My writing has drastically improved over the years- it took awhile for me to be myself within my writing and once that was accomplished- It took even longer to include emotion into it...now it seems to be habit...I cant seem to keep my personality out of my work...thanks for stopping by and reading and commenting... I appreciate the feedback :)

      I have the oddest sensation of de ja vu. This is a beautiful production. Not a hub, a production, filled with the mystery of love.

      Very tender and expressive - you are good at drawing out deep emotions from only a few well-chosen and well-placed words. Thanks for sharing your heart with us! Voted up and beautiful.

      Thanks Mark- I have been reading up on some of your hubs as well :) I quit my job last week, so my time is more flexible and allows me to read up and catch up where I was lacking...at least till there is new work to be done :)

      poshcoffeeco, thanks! I try to add little effects, like the old motion picture reel effect to the slideshow- I think it helps the story be told. thanks for reading, watching and commenting :)

      AWW this is so nice. It really makes a difference when reading poetry to music. I loved the scratchy effects of long past memories in the video. You get all of my votes

      H.C. Amazing! I love making photo streams and I put other people's songs behind them but I had never thought of doing this. It's like an art installation on my laptop, just breathtaking.

      Your poetry is very moving, especially when partnered with Daniel's music.

      Thank you Joyce- I am glad that you enjoyed this. I am so happy that HP now has the ability to post videos without us having to link to you tube, i love the auto play feature too... I hope to start adding more and more to my collection of hubs that are composed more so around a video creation rather than the other way around. Thank you fro reading, watching and commenting :)
