Fix Me Up Again
Cloudy sky,
No need to look away,
From the sun somewhere,
The sky just seems so grey,
As I'm walking home alone,
Holding an image of your face.
Now I don't really know,
How I went so far astray.
I always kept my step,
From veering too far either way.
Yet here I'm in this torn-up state,
Without your love or your embrace.
I never fought it,
I really loved the speed.
My heart'll never be the same.
Alright, ya got the space from me,
Now that you wanted.
Life goes on just like it is supposted to.
You fly so straight and free,
It's like we never met,
A twist of fate for you perhaps.
A wreck of passing hearts,
Yet for me it never ends....
I'm still searchin' for my parts.
No, it's really not your fault,
I fell in love with you,
You put yourself out there one time,
And I got into you.
The way you made me feel inside,
Still makes my thoughts just drift away.
I never fought it,
Just can't forgot about you.
My heart'll never be the same.
Alright, ya got the space from me,
I guess ya wanted.
Life goes on just like it is supposted to.
(How could I ever turn back...)
I see ya jouneyin' on,
Along that parallel course,
You stay just outside my longin' reach...
But oh, of course!
To me you still look so damn fine,
I'm almost content to dream right here.
But that's not how it goes,
On this hot old heartbreak road.
You'll never give yourself again,
Or that's what I've been told,
But I can't find my way from you,
Hoping you'll cross that double line.
I never fought you,
Said once I made you happy,
I only wanted to keep tryin'.
Alright you got your place,
It can't be all you wanted.
Life goes on just not like it's supposted to.
Hardly can I keep,
My thoughts away from you.
A peek at soft and tender moments given,
So alive with you.
All twisted beneath my surface,
Crumpled by my desire.
Cloudy sky,
No need to look away.
There ain't no glimmer at all,
Of sun up there today.
No reason to stop and wonder why....
I can't fix me up again.

*HEAVY HEARTED SIGH* Oh god Richard, you are bleeding out here. *giant hugz* I have read through this a couple of times and each time I felt I sunk farther and farther into the agony of lost love. You have effortlessly poured out your pain here and those of us who have had this same experience can feel it through and through.


"A wreck of passing hearts" favorite line in the poem, I would have been tempted (had I written this) to have this for the title.


Time helps...ever so slowly Richard and yes, I won't even try to buff it...each day feels like forever but ever so gradually, the memories are less frequent, the pain isn't as piercing and you move on. Of course, one never forgets a love that is felt this deep and perhaps that is just the way it should be, for many good times and emotions were gleaned from your time together.


I feel this to my core Richard. I wish for the sun to shine in your skies again...and I know this will be your reality one day. Love can tear a person down but love can build you up again.


Soulful write Richard, beautifully done. *hugz*

Tough place to be at the moment, I feel for you.  No doubt, you will come back stronger.  I can sense from this write it took a lot of work and edit.  The quality shows, as you are also.

Rich......I "hear" you, my friend.....The excrutiating part of being in love with someone, and their indifference bringing clouds around you daily, is a grind~!!  I must agree with the others, she seems that she lost her chance with real, true love.....An ideal relationship she crushed....(sigh)  Well, onward and upward....Maybe there will be a new lady on the horizon to "fix you up again"???  Enjoyed the read, Rich....

I like the feel of this, Rich..This can't be a country song, of course..Not unless you do some cheating with they lines. Country and rock are 8 lines per verse..Gotta be..This is 6 lines per verse, meaning it has to be blues or jazz. I was aable to put a blues tune to it..There are some ragged tempo glitches I found. If ya don't mind, I'll PM you with my thoughts on it...Lotsa soul, though, my friend. This didn't come from any mental exersize..Too much feeling in it...len

 As I read this ..I just had to read this poem again.. funny how your poems reach so deep inside my heart in such a suffering kind of way..Its like I Know exactly how you feel and what it is doing to you inside... You breath so deep inside its kinda scary... I feel this void in your life dear friend.. Hugs ~ Scarlett

Rich...this has such a country song feel to it! I could almost hear the steel guitar and fiddles playing along...My heart ached with the pain that was infused in each word. I hope that this pain passes soon and when you look back on this time in your life you will one day be able to remember it as just one of those times that helped you grow stronger. She's lost out on a chance to know what real love could have been, but don't let this be the last time that you reach out...There's someone out there for you that is deserving of you and your devotion.

Sending hugs...
