Confusion
  
Confusion
 
Confusion seems to envelop me
In a dark blanket of despair
Do I want you gone from my life
Or do I really want you here
 
Is it just a matter of loneliness
Or is it really a love so true
As I wonder where did it all go wrong
Was it just me or was it you too
 
Did we both expect too much
Are there demons here from our past
Did I throw a jinx in things
Because I had a fear that it would not last
 
Is it true we get what we think about
Including all the things we fear
Do we draw those things into our life
Is that the reason you are not here
 
Should you be here beside me
I think it’s where I want you to be
But again is it fear or loneliness
And do you want to be here with me
 
Have my thoughts been so wrong
In that I didn’t trust what was right
Are you really the music to my song
That my heart now sings tonight
 
It is these nights when I feel so alone
With these thoughts running through my head
I wonder in what direction does my future lay
Will I ever again feel love instead of dread
 
I  now want look ahead to each new day
And all new things that it will bring
Letting the words for my song develop
For the time when my heart is ready to sing
 
For I know that it will sing again
When love is once again within it’s grasp
Born from the things that I have learnt
Lessons taught for the future from our past

Ethommo is so right. To be able to write clearly and simply is a sign of genius. You go, girl with yo bad self!

I think that this is a very good poem. I've read other poems from you, I think you're a good writer. These are what I call poems, you can read them and understand them as soon as you finish reading, you can also feel the emotion as you read along. Keep writing.
