Why?

Poem By Brittany Daniel

How can I describe what I'm going through?
Nightly thoughts in my head of losing you.
I've been beating my brains out night after night.
The worst part is knowing this just isn't right.
I can't give up this easily and quit.
I just can't bring myself to say we are over yet.
I don't know your true feelings, but at least I can try.
I've tried to find out, but the opportunities seem to pass me by.
Stop walking away when I try to get close!
There are some things I just need to know.
Tell me why your feelings for her are so strong
and why, in an instant, yours for me were gone?
Tell me why you thought we were moving too fast?
Tell me why was I the one to come last?
Tell me why you have to leave my life, why can't you stay?
Why can't I make these feelings for you just go away?

Love

true love is when you can look at a picture of the guy you like and honestly wish his complete happiness.

and it's also when you can let go, and if he's truly yours he will come back, and not just because you are a last resort
or the other person he wanted didn't want him,

Oblivious

“You finally lost the race, ” I think to myself about the person sitting across from me. “But you don’t know it yet. Maybe you never knew to begin with.”

I can't stand being seen to squirm underneath a trance as I slightly raise the edge of my lip into a unnoticable sneer.
So sour a thought.

Grindstone

I'm back against the wall of my mind.
How could I have missed all of the signs?
Back to the grindstone
to grind down my heart.

Movin' On

Flew from the dark,
Rising with pain,
I dropped to my knees,
crying in shame,

I met a man
when I had a broken heart.
He became my friend
when things were falling apart.

Elizabeth, My Friend.

From the stars in the sky
to the white and blue seas below,
the beauty beyond compare
to those who know
