    Description:
       It's about that lull in a relationship where the newness and infatuation has simmered down and you're left trying to figure out if it's really something substantial under all that or if you were just boiling water . . . please, any comments, critiques, etc are welcome. Even the mean ones, I don't usually take offense, lol.

    When there's too much going on in my head
    and too many things left unsaid
    even when the topic is supposed to be dead
    I still feel like my heart's full of lead
    between the lines is where I should have read
    because even when we're wrapped up in bed
    after our passions have since been fed
    when I should be happiest is when I feel dread

    We're floating when we should fight
    to keep going, to keep the light
    I don't know what is wrong or what's right
    but its you I still burn for at night

    You know, it just goes to show
    you never know where a relationship will go
    for me you said you'd go through fire or snow
    through every touch and look our love would glow
    but now it's just . . . I don't know
    once gushing love now runs so slow
    I want to work at it; make our waning love grow
    cuz in the future we only reap what we sow . . .

    We're floating when we should fight
    to keep going, to keep the light
    I don't know what is wrong or whats right
    but its you I'll always burn for at night

    And I don't know who we are
    How did we ever stray so far?
    I miss you, my dear, even when we are near
    am I losing you? I'm losing myself to the fear
    We're floating floating floating
    sweetheart
    we should keep going going going
    sweetheart
    please . . .

    Reach out to me, now, we can win this thing yet
    Against our love, no sane one would bet
    My mind and my heart like stone are set
    I'd bleed your name if my blood was ever let
    I could bleed until the whole world was wet
    and never would they ever forget
    who it was that they hurt with their threat
    I'll no longer be doubt and fear's little pet

    We're floating when we should fight
    to keep going, to keep the light
    I don't know what is wrong or whats right
    but its you I'll always burn for at night

    I'll follow my heart, and it leads straight to you
    you know I've always been faithful and true
    I love all the things that we used to do
    I hope we can go back to that, don't you?
    Together forever, until the world turns blue
    When all else is gone it'll just be us two
    I love you, that I thought you knew
    but it'll be alright, our love we'll renew . . .

    We've stopped floating, we'll always fight
    to keep going, to keep the light
    I don't know what is wrong or whats right
    but its you I'll always burn for at night

      don't believe in "mean ones"

    there are several good lines in this...also many that seem a bit cliché...i would do two things...go through and shorten it....leaving just the best, more different lines...maybe add a unique image or two...and also temper the description...let the readers gauge what the poem is about for them individually...giving too much away at the beginning before we read the piece really limits the scope...

    we would still get the heartbreak that is going on..the frustration in the relationship...
    in stanza 6, lines 3 through 6 are fantastic...really like those so much...it is stuff like that which is so good that gets a bit camouflaged in some of the other lines that are a bit too commonplace in wording..

    hope that helps...
