"We've got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant. You can't just accept it and leave it in a cupboard or just think it's going to get on by itself. You've got to keep watering it. You've got to really look after it and nurture it." - John Lennon

"In my end is my beginning."... - T.S. Eliot

He's running through my mind
Stepping over the line
Between his space and mine
Flirting with devastated and just fine.
I want you fully gone
I was stupid, I was wrong.
Stay out of my head
And far away from my heart
I think that an apology
Would be a nice way to start.
Stop invading my past
Don't ruin my future
Slipping into my life so fast
That I never can be too sure
If I'm safe from these feelings
Or if it's just false security
If "we" will ever have meaning
Or if i'm broken indefinitely.

I wrote this at 1am this morning so it's not of the best quality but its bursting with emotion.

I am the author of my own life... unfortunately I'm writing in pen and can't erase my mistakes.

This is very good! I love how almost anyone can relate to this poem, because it's so true! Keep it up!
