Real pain put beautifully!
A poem can say so much. Great work from Nicole!
I am the kind of girl you love from a distance,
Because if you come close enough,
You will see the trails of tears down my cheeks,
The pain in my eyes,
And the hurt in my smile.
I am afraid to see the pity in your eyes,
Your gentle words to comfort me,
Your loving arms to hold me,
I want to hurt alone,
Me and only me.
Why won’t you love me from a distance?
Keep your heart away,
Because I just might hurt you,
I don’t think I have it anymore,
I don’t think I have love anymore.
I stand by my window and stare,
The cold dark night matches the rhythm of my heart,
My true self staring me back,
Damaged I feel and I pray silently,
That you love me from a distance.
