When I'm With You

I wrote this on 28/10/10. I'd recently split with my fiance and was trying to figure out how I felt about a very close friend.

I'm supposed to feel free,

Yet all I feel is trapped and alone,

Scared and unsure,

Confused and uncertain.

 

The people around me, ask if I'm okay,

'I'm fine really,' I reply and fake a smile,

I feel weak and defenceless,

Cold and empty.

 

Constantly searching for a way,

A way to feel more like me,

To stop the pain,

To find you.

 

I need you here to stop the loneliness,

To cease the confusion,

Because the only time I see clear,

Is when I'm with you.

The End
