I am living like I am dying
I am laughing like I am crying
I am letting go, like I am still trying
I am okay like I am not fine
  
I realize its all in the past like a feeling it could have last,
I think I have moved on like there is nowhere I belong,
I’ve forgotten the meaning of a kiss, like it meant the taste of your lips
I think of sunshine, but I imagine an eclipse.
  
I know life will bring more, like leaving me behind a closed door,
I'll survive every pain, like dying every night was not a fun game,
I stay awake in sleep, like I have more promises to keep.
I believed every word you said, like beautiful lies didn't exist.
  
Heartache is only imaginary, like I'm begging for a cure,
its not like you're never happy again, like I can recall the last time I was,
it hurts but its not the end of the world, like there is more to lose?
life is not just about 'love', like love is all there is to life.
  
I think I'm having split feelings, I think one thing and it means something else in my head. Which you may have realized after reading this through.

Very nice. And I sympathize, in past years of loving... thinking one thing (or more)... feeling another (and then some)... wondering why (and why not)... and when will it cease (but fearing what left will there be)... another choice (of life over death)... life taking precedence (of course, because it can)... walking, talking, plodding through... (to?)... wherever it was meant to take, me....

Or that is what I heard, in my own heart.

Your lovely poem.

This is just how I feel. Like what does it matter we're going to just die one day anyway. Why make our bed, brush our teeth, take a shower. What's the point. When I do live it's in my mind in my memories. I don't have the strength to work hard enough to go back there. Does that make any sense. I had a dream last night that I was in my old house the one I lived in when I was a little girl, I cried & cried. Wonder if that means something.

Yeah I really think this is so true. To so many,love teaches you that there arent
really opposites,just... Parallels?
Different things dont conflict,theyre right beside each other,and often you can feel them both,leaving such...inertia... you think?

I wrote some love stuff,check it out if you like :)

Nice work once again. Your pieces are always very emotive and the layout of them never ceases to amaze me. One line that really struck me was "I believed every word you said". Anyway, hope things look up for you, but if not I guess we have more poems like this to look forward to... I try to see the good in everything ;)

It seemed sad... You know what I hate. Reading and listening to music. Cause they have different flows so when you read a poem and listen to music it messes with the flow... That was a bit random... Loved the poem!~<3

Really beautiful, dearie! I think this is definitely one of my favorites out of all your works... It's very beautiful, and it describes the emotive ramblings of the sequestered mind very efficiently. I love it!

thanks, it really is like split feelings when you say I can do move on but inside you know its just pointless if there is nowhere you belong. This is to hollow me and to all those who understand the feeling :)
