All alone in the moonlight,

I envision your face again tonight.

Images still make me cry.

Feelings consume me, I try to deny.

Day breaks; I try to be free,

but your memory is haunting me.

Oh, there’s nothing I can do,

I only feel emptiness without you.

The last time you made me depart,

you thrust a knife deep inside my heart.

But the pieces will begin to mend,

when someone has another to lend.

Never will you ever find,

someone to treat you so very kind.

Someone to take care of you,

now that you’ve said we’re through.

I hope the emptiness of your frozen heart,

makes you realize you have to make a start,

to sort your feelings out inside,

and get rid of all that false pride.

Think about what I’ve said,

and all my poems you’ve read.

Love is a two way street,

and it doesn’t start with everyone you meet.

Confidence, Gave-up, Forgotten, Pent-up, Put away.

The normal contentment of my body,

has changed to rapturous yearnings.

You’ve infected me with your passion.

How can you be so empowering?

Oh Baby! What you do to me!

{You} Enslave my mind, my heart, my soul.

I’ve lost myself to your stirring essence

Emotions so hard to control.

I never forgot the day we met,

electric energy flowed straight to my heart.

{My} esteem so vulnerable.

Should have felt the connection from the start.

How can I explain my needs?

My true heartfelt longings,

When you in frau with another.

Hand over my lips restraining.

Self-preservation is not part of me anymore,

you matter more to me than myself.

Possessions, Obsession, Transgressions,

I consult your feelings before mine.

The strings of my heart you pull,

strain from the pressure of desire.

and if you let go,

my heart will retire.


Thoughts you trapped in my mind,


My heart’s so confined,


Words I want to find,

linger through the air again,
