You stare, I stare,

it's all I can do just to bear it.

You're in love with somebody else,

and I don't know, I don't know what I feel,

but I wonder what it would be like if you kissed me,

and smile at how you make me laugh so effortlessly.

You annoy me, or I just get annoyed,

and when I'm defenceless, I want you to be my convoy,

and shall I just grin and bear it?

What do I want?

Sometimes I think I catch glimpses in your eyes,

but is that just me hoping or perceptive lies.

I want to feel like the ocean breeze,

I want my heart to melt, stop the freeze,

were you looking into my eyes?

because I can give you the sunrise

I get lost when I think so fast,

and my heart will always be last.

I want to feel like a million dollars

and your look couldn't have made me feel any smaller,

why am I always waiting,

why can't I just be there?

In the place where happiness breathes,

not in the dark place where the heart deceives.

Hmmm....caught between a rock and a hard place. Being caught in an emotional state of flux, can serve no purpose for you. Like She Whispers said....find the answers. Nice piece, very poignant.

I can feel your longing and wishes in this poem..and sometimes when we wish for something SO much, you are absolutely right that we can deceive ourselves. My favorite lines:

"In the place where happiness breathes,

not in the dark place where the heart deceives."
