hotel on the edge
You are fighting again

What else is new,

I live in a war zone

A hotel on the edge

There are no smiles

Laughter is not free

There is only the tension

That is becoming normal

I donít want it to become normal

This canít happen again

You have to see past him

See what you are ruining

For the sake of one

There is no joy anymore

There is no fun

Nothing happens lightly

There is a cold settling that I cannot shift

Can you not see what is happening

Or are you blinded by your chosen path

Can you see what your actions are costing

Or is this what actually happened in the past

Is this what happened one rainy night

When I never saw you for months

You went past in your car and I waved

But I had to do it in secret

You canít do this again

It canít happen now

Iíll give up if this happens

Because it will lead to events

To which I cannot

Even begin to handle

A very personal piece about relationships...very enlightening and farseeing, predicting the outcome of events that cannot be changed...It has a voice of its own and I liked it.

Cherie, im not sure what you are talking about in this poem though it is a good poem. But from what I see, I think you can handle pretty much anything. I think your a very strong happy and positive person. Try to hang in there because if you give up, its harder to become happy again.

This is so sad Cherie
I can so relate to this in ways that break my heart. Never let the normal happen.....for it will never be normal. No smiles, laughter is not free.........that breaks my heart.
I love your poem as I know words will become your freedom! Your expression in your writing tells me you are a very bright wonderful person who will one day be very free and HAPPY!
