I sit.........

...........in my misery......

...and you don't know I'm there.

I rejoice in my strength..........

...and you don't hear my Tarzan yell.

I wait patiently......

...and you don't come to me.

I lie there beside you.........

...and you never reach out to me.

I scream in my pain.....

...and you can't hear the noise in my brain.

And I know.......

...that the time when you would have known......

...and would have rejoiced,

...and would have rushed to me,

...and reached out to me,

...and heard the unspoken screams......

...........has long since passed,

and as I sit, waiting, longingly, dejectedly

...embarrassingly,..

...I know that the finger of time......

...having writ,

...turns the page

..........and moves on .

To be alone with someone beside you is the worst kind of alone.
This is so very moving, it makes my soul cry.
Brilliant!

This is powerful. It speaks to me deeply, as it must to anyone who has ever been with someone they love deeply, yet are still alone.
