the hollow cavities/of my heart/and stomach/ache for a person/
to love/

         and i know/people care/but it just isn't/can't be/the same/as having/
someone/no you/

                    stroke my hair/and hold my/clammy hand/someone/no you/
who gets/my humor/and can see/all of me/

the beauty/and the pain/and the sorrow/and the joy/bubbling/
                                                     just beneath/the tender/folds of my/skin/

             see my eyes/lite up/in wonder/and see me/crumble/
into a ball/and fall into/a pit of/despair/

                                    they/no you/will be/there/with me/and for me/
tilting my chin/up to yours/

i see you/and hear you/and feel you/you'll whisper/
                      and then my eyes will reach/ yours/

and i will/still be broken/but not alone/never alone/you/with an arm/
          around my fragile waist/

         and/in that moment/i know i have/found my/person/my soulmate/
my kindred spirit/

who will guide me/and teach me/and love me/like never before/and only then/
will i be full/
this longing/and hoping/seems useless sometimes/i've romantizised/
                  and imagined/
           so many/different scenarios/with me at center stage/soaking in the/
rays of love/

yet this can't be it/right/because i have my/whole life/ahead of me/and
           what do i know/

                but sometimes/i am just/impatient/waiting/and longing/
and filling your hole/with sad songs/that sing to me/

about what it's like/to know you/and lose you/
                                  and then i cry for you/because what if we never meet/

                    and even when i am/with people/i am still alone/
floating on the outskirts/seeing/not really/living/     
      for now/i will be waiting/here/until we wend our way/into each other's/

and i will/never be/
                          starved again/

i've seen a lot of poems about love lately... most notably abi's pov's "a poet; an imposter; someone who really wants to be loved, but never could be | synonyms." of course, i could never do their poem justice. this is intspited by theirs, as long with sunny v.'s "sometimes, i forget to:" which is completely undescribable in words unless you read their poem of lone souls and anxious words that will make you cry. anyway. i was feeling the emptiness of love lately, so i wrote this. what stood out to you? fav words/phrases? other things?

    Wow... Um I don't know what to say besides this is absolutely phenomenal!! I loved the repetition of the 'no you' phrase, it somehow added something else to this piece that I can't describe!
    Re: Thank you so much!! I'm glad you like my piece...
    Also, I would like to thank you on behalf of WtW in general for being such a positive influence and I just want to say all of your comments make me soo happy!! You are just such a sweet person :)

    I love how flow-y this is (not a word...) but yeah.
    Replying- That counts I guess since you have you than one so yay! thank you! They only had the colors blue, green, red, pink, purple, yellow, and black so I couldn't specific, but a lot of the colors you described sound very intriguing and something I'd defiantly custom-buy just to see the color on a canvas.
