Don't really have any.

How much further can I go?
Walking through this forest lost, confused, unaware.
The world seems to fade away and it's just me.
Walking endlessly searching for you. Hoping for a sign.
My eyes, blind.
My ears, deaf.
My hands, bleed.
My whole body is numb, but I can still feel my heart breaking with every beat.
Though I still push forward and I don't know why.
All I see is your face, all I hear is your voice.
All I feel is your touch.
It's all too much.
I cannot die.
Every tree is every thought, fantasy,
dream, hope...
Every ounce of love I have for you my dear, and I just can't find my way out of here.
The mist guides my way stepping on thorns, making the wrong decision.
The air filled with toxic memories.
I can't breath.
Every leaf is every tear that broke through, and the trees bloom more as I push on.
I know what I'm doing wrong but I can't turn back.
I've tried for far too long.
The shadows blacken my eyes.
Everything I touch dies.
The sunlight shines through and down upon me, showing only a tiny aspect of hope.
My cries and screams echo in silence in this forsaken place.
The mist and sunlight collide and I see your face.
The moss, the regret, my mistake... Infects everything.
It's all beyond my control and I'll find you even if it means selling my soul.
I know what the whispering winds speak.
I know what goes on.
I'll strive to reach you, before dusk and after dawn.
I go forever in search of you.
This addictive endless passion burns like the burning bush.
It never burns out.
Every stump, hill, mountain, I tumble and fall.
I won't give up because your my all.
Though with broken limbs.
A crushed spirit.
A torn heart and soul.
I still find the strength to walk.
How much further can I go?
I've survived a thousand miles of heart break.
I'll reach you for the risks sake.
Enormous pressure, suppressing my body.
My breath is sucked out of me.
I collapse.
I'm at my end.
I love you so much, it's literally killing me.
This forest never appears to have a night or day.
I can't see the light or the bay.
I can't go.
All I see is you standing beyond a white rose.
I crawl bleeding everywhere toward the rose.
My hand just below it.
The rose shifts into red and bleeds
like the blood I have shed.
The red fades to black and the petals go...
Gone with the wind, along with your being.
Crying without you replying, screaming because all along I was dreaming.
For an eternity I laid here and forever cry, because of my love...
I die.

The author's comments:
Wrote this my freshman year in high school. I was thinking of writing a poem about nature, and emphasize it's beauty, but at the same time I wanted to write about love. I was browsing through YouTube and click. This song played a melody that unleashed everything that I had burrowed deep within me. I was in love at the time, and I wanted to write a poem about the experience. Nothing came to me until I listened to that song. It took me about five to eight minutes writing this. I hope you all like it.

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others.
For beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness.
And for poise walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.
