Hurting Poem

I Want To

© Jacquelyn Upton
I want to write about how you make me feel
How every time I see your face I know that you're real
I can't describe the feeling you always raise in me
I can't describe this wash of happiness that you seem to bring
But I want to write about it, I want to write about you

I want to write about that day we shared
How every time you would laugh it would linger in the air
I can't describe the loving look in your eyes
I can't describe the reason why you won't say, "Goodbye".
But I want to write about it, I want to write about you

I want to write about all our memories, all our stories, and adventures
How we conquered them together
But I can't describe the paths we took
I can't describe the sense of security I felt in that one look
But I want to; I want to write about you

I want to write about us
How everything felt was true love not lust
But I can't describe anything without you
I can't describe all our hopes and dreams
How everything that was so perfect left in a fleet of screams

I want to write
But I can't explain how our plans got so disarrayed
How God just had to take you away
I can't describe this sudden feeling I have to be by your side
How even through death I have to hide all that I feel inside

I want to write, but I forget how to describe what is meant
I want to write about you but I can't
I can't describe the feeling of lost, the feeling of what it all cost
Or of the silent screams, the lovely dreams with just you and me
But I want to-

  • I like someone but I think he doesn't like me because I know he likes my best friend so what can I do? I can't think about that. If he knows about this he will think I am mad. So what can I do? I make my heart strong. Now I can give him to my friend but when I see him can't strong my heart.
