Where I Belong

By latenightwrite

All I ever feel is pain,
And these feelings are driving me insane.
So put the dagger in my back,
And punish me for all I lack.

Lately, I've been down on my luck,
Nothing seems to go my way.
My soul and body are weary and tired,
So lift them up,
And light them on fire.

I feel a numbness in my soul, 
As your words start to take their toll.
In your eyes, I see the stars-
And then, I realize the love behind my scars.

I wish, i wish, with all my might,
To dance with you in my dreams tonight.
With your heart in my hands,
This life with you,
I hope never ends.

I pray and ask God for a knife,
Instead he puts in my hands, another life.
In the anger of angels who don't return,
They give me lessons and hope I'll learn.

Believe it, 
There was truth in all my lies,
They built me up,
My grand disguise.
But wouldn't you too lie,
When asked if you would rather die?

Trust me, 
This is where I belong,
Without you in my life,
Everything feels so wrong.
Don't say that we're not meant to be,
I know you were made for me.

Together lets risk it all,
The prize in the end is greater than the fall.
Stay close, by my side,
Together we'll be love's suicide.

God, give me strength to say what's right,
I cant stand to lose this love tonight.
There's nothing left that I can do,
Because it's not in my head,
But in my heart,
That I love you.

    This is an absolutely passionate romance. So much that one would tolerate abuse and extreme pain? Wow. That is what poetry is all about. A love so romantic that neither heaven nor hell could deter you. A+ for the level of dramatic appeal in this poem.
