A Life I Cannot Live With You

Poem By Kimberly Santistevan

We both know we are not meant to be
I love him
I wish that you could really see.

Hurting you is not what I want to do.
It’s the truth
That is from deep inside of me.

I love him
I have loved him more
Than you could know.

I’m happy that you’re my friend
I just hate it when you tell me you love me
And the plans that you have for us.

You make me feel bad
You make me like I’m hurting you
You said that you are waiting for me.

I lay here crying
Knowing deep inside that
I have hurt you even though
You say I didn’t.

We both know we cannot be
I love another
Me and you are just friends
But you want and need more.

I’m sorry I can’t do that
I wish you could see
I love him
And you make me feel terrible.

Give me a few days to think
But leave me alone
Quit telling me that I am so much to you.

You are my friend
Nothing more
And nothing less.

A girl like me will make your world better

No One

No one understands me
No one understands what’s inside
No one understands what I think
No one understands what I do.

I Sit Here You Sit There; Shall I?

I sit here
Naked
Bare skinned.

If Tomorrow Doesn’t Come, Please Remember

If tomorrow doesn’t come
Please forget all the fights
But please remember my face.

Grandma, I Miss You

Thinking of you
And the fact that I never knew you.

I see pictures of you
