I really don't care what anyone thinks about this poem, this is for my friend Kristi in hopes she might start to actually understand how much I really do care for her. And others do too. I might not be able to see you Kristi, but I know who you are... and I'm not about to give up on you anytime soon.

Hear me/ Kristi's poem

I sit and stare

As your words scroll across the screen

Sadness, hurt, pain.

-x-

But I don't want you to feel this way

I don't want you to feel alone

(Because you're not)

-x-

Hear these words

Hear them now

Listen closely

As I shout them out.

-x-

When you are hurt

I feel it

When you are cut

I bleed too.

-x-

I know

I've seen it

I've been there

-x-

They might not know

The darkness there is within your heart

But I do.

-x-

I know it

I've seen it

I've been there

-x-

That is the reason

I don't want you to feel this way

That is the reason

I always fight so hard to keep you happy.

-x-

I want you to

Spread your wings

I wan you to be grateful for

All of life's blessings

-x-

Don't do it

Don't go there

Don't let it win

Don't let it take your heart.

-x-

There are no words

To describe

How much I care for you Kristi

-x-

It doesn't matter what your name is

Or what you look like

You are wonderful as you

You are beautiful as simply you.

-x-

You're my friend

And always will be

Your writing is beautiful

Your style is true.

-x-

When you cry

Tears fall from my eyes

When you feel pain

My soul cries out to you.

-x-

I care so much for you

I can't even describe

I want you to be happy

This is all for you.

-x-

All of this,

Comes from my heart Kristi

And everytime you feel down

I want you to remember this.

-x-

Here me out

Can't you see?

Open your eyes

And just be free

-x-

Don't be afraid

Don't hold back

Forget everyone else

They're all just quacks

-x-

Know that I'm here for you

And many others too.

You're not alone

For we all love you as you.
