Description: I just started thinking last night, "If he would leave me alone, if I could get away from him, if I forgot how his skin felt, etc. then I could get over all this." And then I remembered that, no, I couldn't. It's as pointless as trying to make my heart stop by thinking about it. Loving him comes as naturally to me as breathing.
I Could Stop Loving You -------------------------------------------
If I could stop seeing your face
If I could stop hearing your voice
If I could stop touching your skin
If I had any other choice
If I could stop looking into your eyes
If I could quit hearing you say my name
If you would keep your hands to yourself
If things between us could ever change
If I couldn't see you walk through my door
If I couldn't hear you moan
If I couldn't feel you inside of me
If you would only leave me alone
If you would stop looking at me
If you would stop listening to my words
If you would forget the way my body feels
If you remembered anything you've heard
If I could suck the breath from my lungs
If my world was more than just us two
If I could keep my heart from beating
Then I could stop loving you.
Yep...felt this way many many times. Sometimes no matter how much we want it to go away..and no matter how much we try to MAKE it go away...love just stays. But maybe that's the beauty of it? Anyway this was great...keep it up! ~hailie~
I like the fact that you are so strong in your words, as if you are being somewhat defiant with them. It makes a very good visual. It kind of remined me of some of my work, but in a compeltely different way. I say this not to say you are not unique because you are, just that I am going through something that reminds of your poem so I can relate.
