Poem: M.I.A.

Gone again
Leaving me
Wondering
Will I get it right

Missing
You looking at me
Your eyes
Focused on me
Caressing my soul

Needing
You
I hate to admit
Craving
Your touch
The taste of your kiss

Guilty
I am
For burying you
Under
My issues
Walling up
My emotions
Because I feared you
Hurting me, leaving me

Confused
Am I at
How
When
You will come back
Into my life

I wonder
Did I go too far
Been too evil
For you
To come back to me
Have I closed
My heart
Too tight
For you to enter

I apologize
For my ignorance
For my offending you
For misunderstanding you

The days grow long
I ache
From self-inflicted pain
Stubborn pride
I sigh
Thinking
Love
Are you still
My friend.

She will always be my friend
She did go far, I did cry
I ask God why?
It was Gods will!

Without these circumstances
He would still be blind
To circumstances, and your needs
So please, forgive yourself

He has already said it is so
Quit beating yourself up
It really hurts
If you don't know

Remember, he has already
given you his blessing
Ask God for what you need
He is all caring
And he hates to see
You bleed
Needlessly

You need to
give up the pain
that you inflict
upon yourself

Let God
Take your pain
Away
forever
Just ask

It shall be done
I know it is true
I asked
He took my pain

I feel an incredible
release
reenergized
Alive

If God can
Forgive YOU
Then
Forgive YOURSELF

PEACE
