Part of Me

Part of me wishes
you would notice
the diamonds falling
from my rimmed eyes
the other part of me
wonders how, why
don’t you see them?

Part of me wishes
you would leave me
alone with my thoughts,
my angst, my despair
the other part of me
wonders how, what
would I do if you did?

Part of me wishes
you would hold me
so tight against your chest
covering all my scars
the other part of me
wonders how, why
would you even want to?

And still I hope
And still I dream
And still I cry myself to sleep

Yes, part of me wishes
you would love me
tenderly, wonderfully
without stipulations
the other part of me
wonders how, how
you could e’er be so patient?

  1. I’ve been browsing on-line more than 3 hours nowadays, yet I never found any attention-grabbing article like yours. It’s beautiful worth sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made good content material as you did, the net will likely be much more helpful than ever before.
