My home lies within the shield of a coward
hidden inside a known foe's soul
I never thought you'd be what I wanted
now I hate to love you though I fear I must.

Every unspoken word holds a secret promise
in the memory of your touch is my happy yesterday
I can't imagine my life without you
though this is the life I live today.

You are not still with me, yet you hold my home
like a thief in the night you stole my trust
I always knew it would end this way
but the midnight hour had not yet struck.

Each promise is a memory
and now I live a life incomplete
and now this burden that I carry
is something with which I can't compete.

Very deep and heavy poem. I hope this person knows how you feel, but most likely he doesn't.

Sorry, I havent been around in a couple of weeks, and what happens? You go on a whirlwind tour of Europe and write another poem!

I like your poetry. I hope that time will dull the sad memories and turn them to cheer.
