To R

A Poem by Atosa

I hate myself sometimes 
and you're the reason why
I hate that I walk around dreaming of you
you're everywhere in my mind

I am a sober person
but you make my mind spin
And when the words come gushing out
I feel anxiety swiping by

There is something about you I can't explain
I've never seen it before
Your eyes shine so bright and you're so calm
like the steady rock I've been looking for

If I'm a crushing wave then you're the calm ocean
If I'm a hurricane then you're the air around
If I'm a fragile leaf then you're the tree
- your roots clutch deep into the ground

I think I could be just like you
only that you know where you stand
I jump around on unsteady legs
never really standing down
-and when my legs starts shaking
   - I go crashing to the ground 

Sometimes I wonder if you're a dream
maybe just an Illusion
A shiny picture I've created in my head
Something that soothes that stab of pain
that life throws at me everyday

I can't decide if I want you or not
if I should love you or hate you
I think I know
I can't write it down
cause that would mean that I'm falling 
deeper than I want
into the tunnel of your mystique 

I created this picture of you
and it's difficult to let it go
But I know that I have to
Cause I've got some healing to do

Wow, I love this poem !! (:
I really like how you write !
I can feel and understand exactly what you are saying and feeling.
I LOVE poems that are emotional and allow me to pull from my own experiences and feelings (: THIS is defiantly one of them.

I sincerely like this,
Your words have so much depth
and so much feeling.
Very nicely written as well.

Every word, every line, everything
about this, this is beautiful.
I can feel it, too.
These feelings that swirl throughout
this, I can compare to what's going
on inside my head. How true, how amazing this is...
but I could never write how I felt.
And here you are, your words slipping off your tongue
and how effortlessly this seems, like you just cleared
your mind and set free everything inside.

great write;
