Overview

Confessions Of Love by Sarah Chemaissem

As we humans try to capture every moment which makes our heart sing, we let slip away the moments which really matter. Being human means regret, it means sacrifice. These poems portray the inner meaning of the heart, they capture the inner darkness which is contained in all of us, but also capturing the spirit of life. Poetry is an expression. It confines the heart to a piece of paper, allowing it to be shared with the world.

"I don't know who to trust

Everything seems to fall to dust

Where do I go, when all my doors are closed?

What does this mean? ...."

Chapter One

SOMETHING TO LIVE BY ...

* * *

When you say, "I love you", mean it
Believe in love at first site
Remember that great love and
great achievements involve great risk
Open your arms to change, but don't let go of your values
Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully
Pray. There's immeasurable power in it
Trust in God but lock your car
Spend some time alone, it will give you relief
When you say, 'I'm sorry', look the person in the eye
Share your knowledge. It's a way to achieve immortality
Judge your success by what you had to give up
in order to receive it
If you make a lot of money, put it to use helping others while
you are living. That is wealth's greatest satisfaction
When you realize you've made a mistake,
take immediate steps to correct it
Call your mother every week, you will be rewarded
Say 'bless you' when you hear someone sneeze
Never laugh at anybody's dream
Write it on your heart the word IMPOSSIBLE says IM POSSIBLE
Don't believe all you hear, spend all you have,
nor sleep all you want.
Once a year, go someplace you've never been before
Remember that not getting what you want is
sometimes a stroke of luck
Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get older and
think back, you'll get to enjoy it a second time.
Remember that your character is your destiny


LOST IN A DREAM

* * *

I feel so lost in this world
I'm here but my soul is else where.
This life has changed who I was and who ill be
It's quite scary and all strange to me
My poetry is dead, my heart is cold
My life is empty, and I'm so darn COLD
I don't know who I've become
I want to wake up to view the old me
But how can I?
While I'm still living in a dream


WALK WITH ME

* * *

Walk with me, the path of life
To explore every bend of the road
Enjoy with me the beauty of life,
Along it's wonderful way.

Find comfort with me, in each others arms
When grief crosses our path
Find with me, in each others strength
When despair lies in wait

Laugh with me, a single true laugh
To enlighten another's distress
Cry with me, a single true tear,
To understand true happiness

Cherish with me, the wonders of life,
As they need to be preserved
Rejoice with me, in the mysteries,
Of what is yet to be

Find peace with me, in each others souls,
When the world has gone insane
Find love with me, in each others hearts,
Until this life has fulfilled

And when the path comes to an end
I hope we can say from within
We've known the beauty of true love,
Our love came from within.


A SPECIAL WORLD

* * *

A special world for you and me
A special bond one cannot see
It wraps us up in its cocoon
And holds us fiercely in its womb

Its fingers spread like fine spun gold
Gently nestling us to the fold
Like silken thread it holds us fast
Bonds like this are meant to last

And though at times a thread may break
A new one forms its wake
To bind us closer and keep us strong
In a special world, where we belong


WHAT HE'S DONE FOR ME

* * *

For so long I've been lonely
Drowning in my tears
No one there to listen
Or help me face my deepest fears
No one there to shelter me
From this world we call home,
No one showed me rainbows
Every time I saw rain.
No one there to give a damn
About my broken heart,
No one to pick up the pieces
Every time I fell apart.
But finally someone came along
And took the time to share,
All the hurt and pain, even despair
That I tried so hard not to show
He took the time to realize
How much I've had to pay,
For every time I gave of me
There was something taken away.
He took the time to look inside
This heart as cold as stone,
He found that there was something there
No one else had ever known
He found what I'd been hiding
Brought it out to show the world,
That there was so much love inside
Of such a lonely girl
He knew what I was feeling
So he set my mind at ease,
Then he did the impossible
He gave my soul to me.
So now I'm going to take this time
To give 'thanks' for all his done,
And hope he knows I love him more
Then life or anyone


NOT MINE

* * *

Words cannot explain
Feelings so strong inside
It makes me want to cry (deep down inside)
I am laying down here
I feel you all around
Your touch so gentle
Your lips against mine
Faster and faster my heart beats
As you become mine
Realizing I am not alone
I try to let go
But there's something about you
I still do not know
I turn around and walk straight by
While you lay there
Thinking your mine ...


REALITY

* * *

I look you in the eyes
Thinking its all divine
Not realizing reality
Has its cruelty on us all
Thinking it will pass by like a raw
But now I've come to realize
That maybe we weren't meant to be
Harder and harder, A day goes by
Not thinking of you is such a lie
Knowing we cant be,
Is something you cannot explain to me.
Living a fantasy, is just the way it's meant to be


NOT MEANT TO BE

* * *

Minding my own business
As days go by,
Thinking to myself
Its nothing but a dream
Feeling for someone
Is nothing but another day, swift with the wind
And the air we breathe
Is just a simple thing
Now you here, my world has changed
I breathe the air each passing day
Looking forward for another say
I feel as though we were meant to be
Not knowing its not up to me
I feel as though you're here forever and only for me
Not knowing I can't have you
For the reasons to be,
As my desires come closer to thee,
Feelings like these all have to go
But wanting you is all ill ever know
As I lay bleeding to thee
Minding my own business
It just wasn't meant to be


WHERE DO WE GO?

* * *

Today has come
Yesterday is gone
Waiting for tomorrow
Knowing our feelings but not knowing how strong
So puzzled for the day
When it will all show,
Knowing we can't be is the cruelest thing to know
Not knowing which step to take
Makes me only plee
I don't want to be played
It's all happened once before
Before you know I'll be gone
So what are you waiting for?
My heart was meant for you
But I guess it just wasn't meant to be.


TOGETHER BECOME WE

* * *

Falling in love with someone is trusting thee
But falling in love with you is what you do to me
Your sweet touch has captured my heart
Your laughter to thee apart, the smile that melts me inside
Within those gorgeous eyes, I can't wait to see thee
As you come closer and I become we


ONE

* * *

Beneath these covers is hidden
Something so sweet, so deep
Something I can only imagine
You're all I see, your touch so near
Softness of your skin I long for dear
Sharing one passion, our world turns to one
Heart pounding to your soft touch
My world is spinning, as you explore me inside
Feeling I cannot clarify
Blood rushing fast, my breath becomes deeper
Our bodies electrified with passion
As you complete the quest of our love
Fate has brought us together
As we become in one world
Lips caressing as we turn to ONE!

"Love is discovered by our ignorance of life"

* * *

LOVE OR NOT?

* * *

Words cannot describe
How I truly feel,
Nothing is more insane than not being with you
Your eyes say it all
Filled with passion, desire
And nothing more,
Just take my hand and lead the way
Please don't go astray, choose our destined path
That will not move us apart
Please take my hand and I shall make you the happiest man
I promise with all I have you will be pleased,
Just take a chance and give our love a try.
So will you lead the way
Shall I turn away?


TRAGIC

* * *

Tragic life
Tragic world
Tragic moments
Tragic me
That's all I know
All I want is you
But knowing, I can't have you
Kills me more inside
Pressure from everyone
I've had enough
Why is this happening to me
Isn't it enough
It's not fair, what have I done to deserve
All this mistress in my life
When things get you down
Sometimes there are no turning backs
All I can think about is you and your touch
Besides mine, your eyes that stare and oh that's so divine.
You're a mistress that floats in my dreams
You're a gift that I can not keep
Your there for only one person which isn't me
I stand here as my is tragic and there's nothing more


SUFFERING

* * *

You're not the person I thought you were
You're something from my worst nightmares
Never thought it could come to life
Never thought I could detect it on my own
It was hard challenging and unbearable
Every time I hear your name it turns my stomachs
How can so much hatred form for only one?
It deludes my mind, overwhelms my heart
Just to think of you, and being apart ...
So I write this to you today with vain
To confess my deepest and outmost honest thoughts of you
Now I've realized the person I thought
once I knew has left in shame.


WITH YOU

* * *

Days of sunshine
Days of rain
Days of disaster
In many ways
Days of laughter
Days of joy
But days without you
Is not a day at all


MISSING YOU

* * *

Busy day
Busy life
Busy week
Is what I like
Hair all done
Money prepared
Shopping spree
Is what I can bare
Love and romance
Not on the list
But you my dear is what I miss


THINKING

* * *

Thinking of you as the day drifts by
Why are you still on my mind?
Working to late
It's so busy today
Love, warmth and passion
Is what I feel
You are the one I call in the night
I love you dearly, can't you tell?
My love for you will never subside
As the days go by, thinking ...
I can't seem to get you off my mind


LOVE

* * *

Love is thought to be something special within
It's so special that you have embraced it into your arms
Love is thought to be something profound
It's so profound that wisdom begins to embrace me
Your love for me is so unconditional so deep and pure
Love is thought to be selfless, fulfilling and eternal
Love is what I feel deeply for you


WISHING YOU NEAR

* * *

All but a dream
Lying in the dark
Something is not clear
Is it from the past
Here I am
Buts what's above
Were not alone as I sense your touch
The softness of you lips
A glimpse of your heart
I lay in the dark
As it all comes to clear
You're only but a dream
Wishing you near


FANTASY

* * *

I was sort of hoping
That you would come along
Like a dream come to life
Or a melody to a song

Setting me free
From this chamber I call home
Changing my life forever
It will not be the same

This fantasy was real
Before I knew your name
And now that I have found you
My feelings have changed

So pardon if I look at you
Forgive me if I stare
I dreamt this dream before
I saw you standing there.

Finally, you're here standing
Like an answer to a prayer
With the melody to a song


WHAT I LOVE ABOUT YOU

* * *

I love the way you look at me
Your love so tender and true
I love the way you kiss me
Your lips so soft and smooth

I love the way you make me smile
And the ways you show you care
I love the way you say "I love you"
And that you're always there

I love the way you touch me
Forever sending chills down my spine
I love that you are with me
And glad I can call you mine


WITHOUT YOU

* * *

This world is empty
This world is blue
This world is useless without you
Left here in gloom
Grey is all I see, grey is all I feel
My world has come to an end
Without a doubt, you stole my heart
And returned it blue
Sitting here lost without you

"Love has such meaning that you cannot explore
its great wonders in less you've lived it"
"Love is empty, love is blue, love has no feelings, so don't you!"


YOU'RE EYES

* * *

Sitting beside the coffee table,
As the music is playing
Relaxing on this recliner, I couldn't help but begin to say
My pen has taken over this page
My thoughts can't keep up anymore
My heart has began to reside
Of all the past we've over come
A love as strong as this, is one we cannot hide
A love as deep as this, is one we cannot despise
A light shines so deep within your heart
My senses come to life
A light of happiness glows only when I look into your eyes.


MY LIFE

* * *

The foundation of our love
Is so strong that wind cannot move it if it tried.
I'm so glad your presence we share every night
Your eyes have captured me from the very start
You smile warms every corner of my soul
Your voice is like a dazzling mountain stream
Which flows into my heart
Your walk, you hair
Your hands I crave to touch
Your arms I long to have around my neck
As you pull me close to your warmth
Most of all everything you are
Changed the way I feel about my life
For that I adore you


WALKED AS ONE

* * *

My heart is pounding
Racing to reach my breath
Just in time, he turns and stares
Lusciously inviting, with his seductive eyes
My eyes soften to touch his skin
Moving towards me, my body begins to quiver
My heart at my feet as heat waves begin to strike
Turning the other way, hand by hand
As we both walked as one.


SLEEPLESS NIGHTS

* * *

Another sleepless night
Can't you feel it too?
That feeling that keeps you up
Not knowing what to do
Something hard to explain
But ill try only for you
Third sleepless night 'just thinking of you'
Chemistry is in the air
Did you go through that too?
I wonder why were sensing this
Maybe it's a sign just for me and you
Strange but might be true


TYPICAL

* * *

I thought you were my angle sent from heavens sky
I thanked god for your presence but now I wonder why
U took your bow and arrow and aimed it to my heart
You let it rip through my soul and left me torn apart...
It made me wonder what went wrong
I loved you without doubt,
But I figured out above all things
You're just a typical male!


STILL NOT FOUND

* * *

Can you feel that strong weight upon your chest?
Heaviness clashing your head
The tension that causes no rest
Weakness in your knees, leaving you to fall
Sadness hidden underneath, forming a scar so deep
Looking into my eyes, sadness and despise
Reaching out to you, as you turned and left me in the blue
My world begins to spin, into a endless twist
Round and round, I begin to fall
Slowly slipping down to the ground
Shattered to pieces, still not found!


SEIZING TO EXIST

* * *

My heart is aching so much, I can't begin to explain
My insides are burning, like hells fire
My bones are saw, but you cannot see
Darkness is beyond measurement in my world
It cant comprehend with a story so hard to tell
Simple and clear is beyond my ear
Sadness withers inside me like you are so near
It tears me apart because you are so dear
My passion in life has slowly drifted with the wind
Only tears is what you can see
My passion, desire, devotion to life
Now only seizes to EXIST!


WHERE DO WE GO?

* * *

Today has come
Yesterday is gone
Waiting for tomorrow
Knowing our feelings but not knowing how strong
So puzzled for the day
When it will all reveal
Knowing we cannot be is the, cruelest you know
Not knowing which step to take
Makes me only plea
I don't want to be played
Its happened once, and no more
Before you know ill be gone
My heart is aching and yearning for a glimpse
So, I guess it just wasn't meant to be!


TOGETHER BECOME WE!

* * *

Falling in love is trusting
But falling in love with you is what you do to me
Your sweet touch has captured my heart
Your laughter will not part,
Your smile which lingers me inside
Your dazzling eyes, I just can not wait to see
As you come closer and I become WE


TRUE LOVE

* * *

From all those stormy days
And strongest rain,
You picked me up from all the rest,
Helped me through this awful test

You showed me hope, when I was down
You held me high when all was lost
Filled my heart with love and joy

You showed me how to be
To be someone with a stronger will
To see I'm not alone
Though it was hard on both of us
You didn't give me up!
You made me see that I was once found
That love is true and never blind

My life had no direction
A road of uncertainty
But now we have a journey
Together you and me

(Continues...)
