Do You?

by

Nicolet Berkman

Do you ever lie awaky and think of me?
Do your night's seem endless as you want to go to sleep, but you can't get me off your mind?
Do you ever talk about me?
Like I talk about you?
Do you tell your friends about me?
Do you think of me?
Better yet, do you think about us?
Do you remember our long talks?
Do you long to have me there?
Do you ever feel like you can't go on but then you hear my name, and suddenly you feel better?
Do you ever want to do anything to see me?
Do you ever want me to be yours?
Do you ever write my name, over and over, just becuase you like the way it looks?
Do you ever say my name inside your head, imagining me, being there with you?
Do you write poems and stories about me???

BECAUSE I DO FOR YOU!


It Could Work

by

Nicolet Berkman

If I feel like I can't go on, you sing me a song. I feel it inside of me. Your voice cleanses me, and makes it all worth while.
But I can't have you, for you won't take me. You probably don't even know I fell this way. And I'm lucky for that. If you knew... I don't know what you'd think.
I miss you. Things haven't been the same for a while now. Though I've never had you for myself, I know we'd work out. Because we have this closeness.
You and I would last. If only I could tell you. Just to let you know! If only I had the courage. But I don't.


You're There

by

Nicolet Berkman

A baby cries,
You comfort it.
A paper falls,
You pick it up.
The rain pours down,
You dry me off.
I hurt inside,
You fix it all.
When I fall
You pick me up.
When I faint
You bring me back.
As I'm dying
You give me life.
If I fall asleep
You wake me up.
When I cry
You sing me a song.
As I hurt,
You make me laugh.
I am alone,
and your by my side.
I'm confused
You lend a hand.
I need a friend
So you're there.


There's This Guy

by

Nicolet Berkman

~There's this guy, I just can't get!
~I guess I love him.
~There's something about him...
~I can tell him anything, and I know he'll understand.
~When I tell him a secret, he never tells.
~He has this smile, its great.
~His eyes seem to glow at me.
~Whenever I'm sad, he makes me happy.
~I'd be something and someone else if it weren't for him.
~He's open to me and I'm open to him.
~I know he'll still think the same of me if I tell him a secret.
~He never gets mad at me as far as I can tell.
~Even when I'm rude to him, he's sweet to me.
~He never lies to me.
~His glowing personality makes me want to have him here.
~But to him, I'm just a friend.
~And thats all I'll ever be.
~Because I lost my chance, I missed it!


Is It You?

by

Nicolet Berkman

-Is it you that I've been waiting for, through all the long hard years?
-The one who will always be there, to calm me and dry my tears?
-Are you that guy my parents love, who's oh so very cute?
-The one who's always been my friend, who's never at all rude?
-Have I finally chosen the man who understands it all?
-The one who'd do anything for me? Anything at all?
-Do you care about what I think, and how I feel?
-Do you understand that on the inside I am totally for real?
-Is it you that always makes me laugh, even when I'm down?
-Are you the one who cares for me, when even with others around?
-I've been dreaming of you all along, through sunshine and the rain.
-Are you that guy who's spent his life doing the very same?


Alone

by

Nicolet Berkman

this is an old one, for my old boyfriend

Tonight I'm sad for in my dreams
I feel this pain; and so real it seems
Looking into your beautiful eyes
I suddenly want to start to cry.
Why I feel this pain, I don't know.
And then into my ear you start to blow.
I am seduced into your peaceful bliss
As its my cheek you start to kiss.
What is this thing that we have?
Is it love thats driving me mad?
Or do you like to call it a trick?
A joke, a game, or even a flick?
I'm afraid you'll leave, afraid you'll go,
And tomorrow I'll be all alone.
I'd be lonely, heartbroken, and very depressed
But at least for today I've been blessed.
So far you've treated me so very well
Just promise you won't make me feel like hell!
Keep up this love, that you've shown
And never leave me all alone!


I Need

by

Nicolet Berkman

I wouldn't call myself sad
Just very sadly mad.
There's nothing to do, nowhere to go
Nobody for me to have and hold.
If there was a point, that'd be nice,
And for you, anything I'd sacrafice.
A border between happy and sad
But if I had you, I'd be so glad!
Excitement, joy, love to give,
I'd love the thought of a life to live!
But to be joyful & have something new,
Specifically I want that someone as you.
They can be cute, hott, and nice,
But something still is never right.
I know what it is, he's not what I need,
It's you, your the one, that I need!


Always But Never

by

Nicolet Berkman

Always am I alone.
Always do I need someone.
Continous love would be shone.
On days when there's no one.
Losing all to live for;
Eternity will never end.
Therefore, life is a bore;
An endless little game.
Never will I see,
Never will I know
Because the point is gone
to me!


Butterfly

by

Nicolet Berkman

It flutters through the breeze
Going higher and farther up.
His life is always an ease
He'll never need to give up.
The sun beams down
On a bright sunny day,
And all of this happiness
Will never go away!
For like a bird, he's free,
Careless, alone, and happy.
Sometimes this is me,
Or I wish it would be!


To Tell

by

Nicolet Berkman

I'd give the angels back their wings
And risk the loss of everything
Just to get that one,
Which I'd like, under the sun!

Can I find the one I seek?
Who's feelings are so very bleek
I'm very shy and also meek,
And I won't tell him... not this week!

Do you wonder the way I do?
About if all of this is true?
I want the one to be you,
But are your feelings old or new?


To Prove

by

Nicolet Berkman

I have this thought, in my head.
There's this perfect guy who cares.
His hair is very very red.
And I long to have him here.
I only wish he'd understand,
The time matter that's at hand!
I can't wait all my life,
Because right now there's pain and strife.
I only want someone to make it heal.
And from him, nothing, would I conceal.
Why is it that my heart he could crush?
Well all I can do is make him blush?
I wish I wouldn't feel this way!
It's turning brightness into gray.
So if he'd get this thing on a move,
To him, my love, I could prove.


You

by

Nicolet Berkman

Rain pats down,
Inside I frown.
The sun beans on,
And still I go on.
I feel so lifeless.
Why am I like this?
Is it because of you,
That my world is blue?
I'm all mixed up,
And ready to give in.
But I can't, because love...
It keeps up my chin.
You seem sent from above,
When I think of you I grin.
So I can't stop!
And then I cry
I know you don't care!
For me, your love is dry.
But I endlessly love you.
Why? Because you're you.


I Can Wish

by

Nicolet Berkman

As I shut my eyes I imagine you. You're right next to me. I love it. Happiness overwhelms me. My life has a true, meaningful purpose.

Then I open my eyes. You're far away. I'm strange for feeling so strongly. I try to make you understand, but you don't. And if you did, you'd be afraid.

In my dreams again, you put your arm around my waist. You do it out of love, care, affection. Not like all the others. They did it for other reasons... one in particular.

Reality strikes once again. I'm just your friend. Maybe close, yeah. But not as close as I'd like it. To you, I'm just another girl, perhaps victim, who feels for you. Nothing or nobody special.

Why can't these dreams just be real? Can't you understand what I feel? Must I battle between two worlds? Or someday, will it be perfect? I doubt it, but hey, I can wish.


So Gentle

by

Nicolet Berkman

Smile at me
Stare into my eyes
Look into my soul
Understand me
Comfort me
Make me happy
Hold me tightly
Kiss my lips
Love my spirit
Enjoy my laughter
Listen to my words
Settle all my cries
Make me laugh
Be there for me
Be glad you make me happy
Feel my pain
Touch my hand
Play with my hair
And smile at me
As your so gentle


My Life

by

Nicolet Berkman

Oh, to be hated by those I care for the most, and adored by those I care for in the least.

My friends all like to betray me, to talk about me and belittle me all because I'm not who they want me to be.

The one person who I gave my heart to for almost a year can go behind my back and be the one person I've known him not to be.

My own blood dislikes it when I tell her what I think and how I feel, along with a lot of my good friends.

Parents don't understand, although they think they do, but really all they understand is what to do to make us suffer in a life and feel as though we don't matter.

To lose a good friend unto a stupid little fight and never hold comfort in their laughter smile, voice, and trust again.

To try and belong in a world full of people who don't understand, but think they do as all they're really for is pain and tears which I have nobody to comfort me for, all because I take everything too far, and nobody cares anymore because caring for a lonely person like me is a waist of time to people just like you.


I Can See

by

Nicolet Berkman

I can see us laying down in a garden of lilies on a pale blue blanket of satin, the warm summer's sun pressing down upon my cheek. We lay close to one another and you embrase me and whisper sweet somethings into my ear as birds chirp up in the trees, and butterflies of exquisite colors flutter past. I close my eyes and focus on the soft touch of your palms around mine. Your voice is soothing from the inside to out as I start to shiver in the cool breeze so I pull you closer and thank God continuously for giving me such a love, such a happiness, that can only be found in a heart full of affection for one person only... the one I devote my whole heart to, and will for years to come, because I love him.


How?

by

Nicolet Berkman

What am I to do now?
I've got you, but I don't know how...
How do I keep you happy?
And still be sure I'm not too sappy?
I'm not gonna let myself lose you.
My world is no longer blue.
I still remember my first sight.
And then we both stayed up all night.
I knew it then, and I know it now
It's you I love, but I don't know how!
How do I live up to what I need to be?
I'm sure I'm not good enough being me!
There's got to be more for me to do,
So that I can prove that all of this is true.
How do I do it hun? What do I say,
To keep you loving me from day to day??


My Love Rainbow

by

Nicolet Berkman

~Orange is my energy and happiness, when I hear your name.
~Red is the way, I love you so much and its my heart you claim.
~Purple is how deeply I feel for you, and I know its true.
~Blue is when I'm all alone and all I want is you!
~Black is when you blow me off, and then suddenly I'm pissed.
~Green's the way you make me feel when were about to kiss.
~Pink is when you make me blush, and it just won't go away.
~And brown's the way you'll make me feel, when you loves astray.
~I love the way orange and pink feel, and even purple too.
~Just please don't make my heart all brown, and even black and blue.


A Downside

by

Nicolet Berkman

I'm so hurt, scared, confused, lonely, and sad! What did I do to deserve these scars? What have I done to lose a best friend? What haven't I done to fulfil the one I'd been waiting for? Is there a reason God made two of my best friends leave me? Why do my friends and those I look up to look down upon me? Must my very best friend be the only person who understands me? Can't my sister understand that I love my friends for who they are and not what she thinks? Doesn't she get it when she calls me a ditz that it hurts inside? Why must they find fun in humiliating me for my flaws? Can't he know that with every "I love you" he helps me to fear what pain the future holds? Why do the few people who really care for me live so far away? Doesn't she get it that I love him for who he is and not what she thinks, or the way he looks?!!!!! Is it really necessary that parents hold us back from what inspires us? Must everything good that becomes of my life have a downside???


Flag

by

Nicolet Berkman

Such liberty
Such beauty
Now we pledge alligance
Why now and not then
Does it take this to see
We need to come together
We didn't have flags flying
Why now and not then
We should have been pledging and praying then
We do it now and not then
