Can I rest in your arms
Can I close my eyes
Can I trust your heartbeat...?

No

It's all a dream
Open my eyes and there's no one here
Fantasies whispered promises
Staring off into the cold
Holding back the shudder

Could I wait here for a moment?
Let the winds pass by
Could I shelter in your arms?

No

The resounding echo returns
There's no shelter for me
There's no heart that's mine

Strong because there is no one else
Stand on my own whether I want to or not
The reality
No one wants the real me

Saw this in the favorites of a friend and had to check it out. I am very glad I did. A very powerful writing. :+fav:
My favorite lines.
Fantasies whispered promises
Staring off into the cold
Holding back the shudder

So deeply touching, I guess we all come across this mood at some point..But life is magical, don't chase for love, or it will eventually find you when you least expect it, and when the time is right!! To find happiness and strength within ourselves..it's hard..but we have to try!! Thats all we can do..lovely words!! :clap:

There are some advantages to relying on yourself and not others. You can't disappoint yourself or not be there. It's not that people don't want to know the real you, it's that they're often so consumed by their own stuff that they just don't see your stuff. It's not personal. Even if it feels like it.

gee food for thought
powerful writing but sad dear li
does have a strength thought too
thought one perhaps in loneliness

we should all be loved for whom we truly are not what we may be thought of or pretend to be..

I kinda figured that but always remember dear there is a warm place in my heart for you..so somewhere in the world remember you got someone that cares about you :)
Maybe thats one of the beauties of not being too involved and having distance
we can share an honesty with each other of each..:huggle::heart:
