A lonely night a lonelier day

written by: Sweet Insanity

A lonely night a lonelier day
but I know I can't make you stay
If you want to go there is nothing I can do
I just keep hoping you won't say we're through

Each second life gets harder and I don't know what to think
I try to move I start to sink

My mind won't budge I'm getting no where
So overwhelmed I no longer care

A lonely night a lonelier day
but I know I can't make you stay
If you want to go there is nothing I can do
I just keep hoping you won't say we're through

Remember the smiles I remember them well
It felt as though I was under a spell

Remember the kisses so warm and so sweet
Our hearts racing faster with every beat

I don't forget the arguments, I remember them too
But much much more I can't forget how it felt to be loving you

A lonely night a lonelier day
but I know I can't make you stay
If you want to go there is nothing I can do
But Please remember I will never stop loving you

I thought you said you couldn't write? I think this poem reads very well. It's simple, straight to the point. The rhymes aren't complex, but it doesn't feel like you tried to hard to make them work either. They flow more effortlessly than usual with you. My favorite has to be the title though... not sure why exactly, it just stands out to me.

Reads more like lyrics than poetry.

I agree with the comment made above about it being more like lyrics then poetry. But that's o.k, isn't it? I mean it reminded me of something Christine McVie would have wrote, and I love her lyrics. Simple but expressive of the hearts feelings.

At the end of the day are lyrics just poetry anyway? I mean some lyrics rhyme etc just like poetry but not all poems rhyme just like lyrics....

I really enjoyed reading this piece.
Well done!

Its simple and effective, filled with inner debth on so many levals. Its a poets dream poem. And the fact that it sounds like a song makes it even better, if you ever want to make a song out of it, and make some more cash.

I love your poem becuase it saids everything i felt during my breakup with my fiance of 6 years, alot of emotions and feelings go through your head when u love someone so much, but sometimes you have to let them go, thats what i did...to make a long story short thanks for writing this, it feels good to know someone can write about what others experience with out knowing one another...your poem was great, ill keep reading if u keep writing...good job!

Wow! That is by far the best compliment I've ever gotten. I'm so sorry that you had to go through this. I'm glad my words could speak to you! Thank you for reading!
