copacetic

pretending
everything
is copacetic
when she is
really
quite
pathetic
wondering
what she
would do
without
his
love.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
pillow talk

"nothing's wrong,"
she said,
and she tucked
her tears
inside the pillow
before he
could hear
the words
inside them.

debt free

I know you
make me

happy

and I think
I make you

happy too.

yet I wonder

is it right
to hold you

when there's
someone

out there

who can
give you
more
than me.


I don't want
to
let you
go --


without you,

my life
would be less.

                      
but I want

                       you to know
                       you are free.
                     
 you have me,

                       but only if
                       you want me.
                      
you don't
owe me

                       anything.
                      
especially,
not
my
happiness.

I love each one of these messages equally well. In the first one, I like the juxtaposition between the words "copacetic" and "pathetic" (aside from the nice rhyme). In the middle one, I've actually done this a few times, so I know the deception well. Last but most well-enjoyed, the third message conveys my feeling about relationships, that other people can't make us happy (& I get so tired of poems that define love this way). I've always preferred a "debt-free" type of friendship/love. Great job! (((HUGS)))

Thank you, I am glad you stopped in.
Debt free... Sometimes we question our own worth. But don't, you're worth it.

Thanks. I tried to remove the pink bar. I hope I have not been permanently MatureRated again.
so sad....has his love and yet questions whether or not she deserves it...

giving him an out---if only he could convince her that he wants no one else.
