I Want That Someone

I wrote this poem in the wee hours of the morning(about 2am) its quite rough but I thought I would post it and see what u guys think of it so far.

Will I ever find someone?
Someone I love whole heartedly,
and them feel the same.

I've had too many crushes,
Too much wasted time by myself.
Time better spent taking risks,
That could bring love back into my life.

A million dreams and a few nightmares in between,
and I'm still where I begun.
Wide eyed and dreamy,
and still wanting to make that friend.

How are they supposed to get to know me,
When I won't let them in.
Because I'm so damn self concious,
And I think its fucked up my life.

I know I need a change,
but I also need that someone to help me along,
on my path of self discovery,
and bring that change along.

Risk And then the day came


And then the day came,
when the risk
to remain tight
in a bud
was more painful
than the risk
it took
to Blossom.

Beautiful, it expresses sentiments that I think we all feel in our lives. Keep up the good work!!!

Silence that spoke, and eloquence of eyes."
