       Well, I don't think it is my best work, but it has alot of truth in it. This is more about my thoughts like a diary entry than it was for poetry use, but apperantly I think in poetic form... I do think that it's a bit cliché, but it's hard for me to break out of this shell - simply because I am going through something quite cliché itself. Judge how you want, but hopefully in the end, somebody knows where my heart is lost.

    Looking into the murkey waters of my own illusion,
    It's about time to shed some light on the shadows of my soul
    Swim out of the bitter cold.
    My denial only steals your smiles anyway.

    Maybe I could find someone else,
    Someone with your same brown eyes
    But will they be as warm?

    My own eyes could search for more,
    A pair of arms, similar to the ones in your name.
    But they won't be your arms,
    Because they just can't hold me right.

    These ears would settle for your words,
    To sing the sunshine back into the sky
    But the clouds would remain lonely,
    For it is not your voice.

    The beating in my chest is not my own anymore,
    It only knows your name.
    Crying for you in every rhythm,
    Existing only on the deminishing hope that you'll listen again.

    So in the end, it seems my denial is not denial at all.
    Instead, a coming-to-terms with on reality.
    The reality that there is only you left,
    My hearts only companion.

      I liked this. It has a mind-at-work feel to it. I think normally I'd have an issue with it, but because of your description I'm thinking it was intended to sound this way.

    These ears would settle for your words,
    To sing the sunshine back into the sky
    But the clouds would remain lonely,
    For it is not your voice.

    that was my favorite stanza, definitely.

    It is a cliché subject, but I think when clichés are written well they can be forgiven, and this was pretty well-written. There are a couple of typos, but we all have those. whatever.

    So yeah, in summary, it wouldn't be a strong poem, but you stated that it's more like a poetic thought process diary sort of deal, so it works.

    keep writing
