22 (who?)

So I will stand by my new lover's side
And staple together the pages of our years
The blacked out fragments of our faded storyline
And the harsh words and silences that still sting my ears
My my, my love
It must have gone by so fast
I haven't grown any older, why have you?
The memories of twisted dreams, of whirlwinds and of make-believe
The nowhere fairytale with a lazy end
The phone calls late and dates with cyberspace
You never could have been anything real to me
It would break the veil of fantasy, I know I was dreaming
Of you and of kisses rough against the midnight sky
The midwinter sun has finally arrived
And so has my beautiful beginning
The middle of our downward spiral has drawn to a close
It's too bad you never knew where to end or begin
I won't dangle from your sins again
I'm through with flailing inside your web
You can't leave me hanging if I've already fallen
Caught by loving whispers of truthful delights
I find your anger to be quite amusing
And this time I won't be the one to give in
I will not apologize again
I will not be lied to but I promise I will lie to you
Now that I'm safe here in the arms of a love I once pushed away
Shot down, regurgitated, humiliated, all for you
Your love was nothing but a tattered photograph in a broken frame
The cuts on my arms, the mind numbing pain
All I needed was a new place to start
All you had to give me was a sweetened taste of heartbreak
I haven't been sleeping very well at night lately, probably because I have so much time to sleep during the day. I wrote this one at about 1:00 a.m. this week because a few verses popped into my head and begged to be written down. And I decided to just keep going with it..

i just read this one again two years later and i still think it's amazing..
i still think you're amazing.
"I'm through with flailing inside your web
You can't leave me hanging if I've already fallen
Caught by loving whispers of truthful delights" .. beautifully written.

the picture goes wonderfully with the poem. i love the way the fixation of the picture is an 'in your face' pink (symbolizing me) and how everything else in the picture is blurry and has subduded colors. it is just like love.. love is the center of everything and is very intense .. and when you are in it, everything else seems to become blurry and just slip away.

very well done my love.
Darling, I know you obviously edited this because I've already commented on it, but what did you edit? Just have to say, reading it for the second time, it's even more beautiful than the first. I love it, completely love it. And I think I actually understand it more now, reading it over. Well I just wanted to tell you it's terrific! :hug: :heart: :hug: Oh, and I'm giving you a :+fav:
I just made the preview picture smaller and added a border to it. :)
Its beautiful. Very realistic and I can relate. Bravi!
wow, this paints such a beautiful picture. the words are amazing..

great work!

I really love it! It's beautiful, sounds sad, but beautiful. I wish I could write like that. I agree with the person who said "hopefully when I grow up I can be just like you" and I also agree with Violet, very good imagery. (Oh, P.S. I'm a friend of Violet's, that's how I stumbled onto your page. You are a very good writer. And according to the pictures Violet had of you at camp, you are very pretty. lol. Just thought I'd tell you)
Wow, great stuff, wish I chould write like that, hopefully when I grow up I can be just like you ;P
Thanks, lol.
