Times Like These

A Poem by Emo_Cat
"

Very personal poem that I am sharing with everyone.

"

It’s times like these when you should be next to me.  Times like these when you should have been here.

You used to be so close, now, many miles away.  Leaving me with what was once passion, and is now nothing but aches and pains.

Only your touch, could ever truly take this pain away, even if as soon as you left, the pain returned.

Not a day passes that I don’t think of you, or miss you.  You held me together during some of my worst times, and you didn’t run from what you saw.

You simply held me closer.

Everything I do, reminds me of you.  Oh how I long to be held in you familiar, comforting, safe arms.

I need you so I am not falling apart.  But you had to leave, leave me behind.

And now it’s so dark.  The darkness is swallowing me, and has been for a while.

I do understand the poem.
"I need you so I am not falling apart. But you had to leave, leave me behind.
And now it’s so dark. The darkness is swallowing me, and has been for a while."
Being a soldiers for almost 15 years. I left places every two years. Funny part. You miss them as soon as you drive away from them. Thank you my friend for sharing the amazing poetry.

Thank you for entering your poem.

There are such sadness in your words which I am sure that anybody who has ever loved another can relate. I hope you find a love that fills you up.

Lost love is always painful.maybe one day...you never know.there's a yearning in your writing.it comes from the inside of you.sharing your pain can help you when others can read and relate to it.you're not alone.

This is very deep and I can understand how you feel, being very comfortable with someone and then everything suddenly changes, you don't know how to feel or what to do

That is the hardest part, in my opinion... About getting over someone... The fact EVERYTHING you encounter... Seems to have a shadow of them across it.. You have a talent for rhyming... An engrossing emotional tug-of-war... To be fine, or to not be fine...
