 Pages Of A Woman's Soul


Don't speak the words...
...you can't make them live!

I know I'm in denial

but  I  don't  care.

What we are
what we have
is real...


You know it too; it's tangible.
are the one
in denial.

Don't tell me it's unhealthy for me to
hold on,
for me to hope.
the way you resist accepting love?
That's unhealthy.

I can't "un-love" you!
Even if I could...

I wouldn't.

Even if you never love me
as I do you,
giving love is...

...a necessary part of my being;
it's like breathing to me.

Why won't you
let me help you heal
and simply
let yourself love?

Feelings this strong, this real
deserve to live
if only in a box in my heart marked
"Do not open until reciprocated."
