I hope and I pray
That things can work out between us,
That you don't have to leave us,
That there will always be an "us".

I won't ever stop trying
To go anywhere for you,
To do anything for you,
To give up everything for you.

I trust you with my life,
I Have complete faith in you,
That my words will be listened to,
So here's one more bit for you.

Remember that the only thing I want more
Than for us to be together,
Is for you to be happy, regardless
Of whether or not we're together.
2/14/11

Yeah. For those who are together, Valentine's Day is pretty great. For those who aren't, it's just another annual reminder that you're not.

Wow! You have so much talent for writing! Your prose is extremely strong and I can really feel all the emotion. Flawless... :D

Thank you, I'm glad you get something from it. A lot of my writings are meant to one person, so the meaning is usually pretty clear. And flawless to you maybe, but that's probably more of a style thing as I'm sure there are others who would dislike it for the same reason that it's straightforward, lacking in symbolism and deeper meaning.

That's true. I just learnt how to analyze a poem in my english class and it's amazing to see how a poem can mean one thing to one person and something totally different to another. I just finished analyzing a poem for homework. The speaker lectures a person named Robert who killed a fly in it... but Robert and the fly could be symbols for something else... not just thoughtless cruelty.

Yeah, I like to keep mine straightforward. If the reader knows what I am saying, then the poem did what I wanted it to. I could trollishly write things no one understands and then sit back and laugh but... I'm not really conveying much if I do that. Hence my style.

Agreed with BulletProofHearted - my favorite bit is the last bit, since it's ... mostly how I feel right now about a certain situation. I can only think part of me will always feel strongly in said certain situation - Love hurts, baha... =_=

Thanks. The last part was actually the first part I wanted to convey, then went back and made the rest building up to it. And yeah, theres a reason the topic is probably one of the most done things in existence. Everyone can relate, and misery enjoys company.

On another note, why is it that when I look back at my responses to people, I feel like half of them are well placed cliches?
