Chapter 1

Darling, I see you smile at me

You're smiling lights my very soul

I just want you to know you had me at 'Hello'

You are my courage

When we are apart I am lost

I seek shelter in your warm embraces

The storms around me can never enter

In your arms I know I am complete

Everyone before you was never good enough

I don't see anything after you

You look at me

You encourage me to keep fighting

Fighting a battle that you had all along

I am a dreamer, but if my dreams are our communication

I can live another moment in this paradise

Please don't wake me up, I don't want to leave this meadow

A meadow where our hearts, and souls are together forever

I can see you in my dreams

Never aging, barely over the years

When I frown that is because I failed you

I failed you in many ways

I took time that could never be gotten back

I thought it was more fun in greener pastures

But the grass is dying rapidly

Dying leaving me with only a shattered heart

A heart full of hopes that may never come

Hopes that I fear will never live again

Only in my dreams I am myself

I see you, and I am one of you

But now I feel so lost and alone

But I can blame no one else but myself

I got caught in a trap

A web of lies

Now I am just a willing dreamer

Dreaming things that are forever out of my grasp

Please forgive me, you don't have to like me, I just ask for your forgiveness

Then maybe this string of nightmares will end and I will once again gain acceptance.

Maristel Espiritu: I am so disappointed with the ending. I was so happy with the character of elizabeth. Its a matter of talking it out.

Withoutanyfs: I wish more people read this bookThis is a short book (very unfortunate) which describes the journey of a "painted" boy. It doesn't romanticize pain, it explains it, It explains the suffering in such a beautiful way, that I almost don't want to believe it. But I do, I can feel the pain. My heart ...
