The Ghost Of Too Much

There's not enough soil in the earth for how deep I want to be buried.
There's not enough water in the oceans for how slowly I want to sink.
There's not enough fire in the sun for how brightly I want to burn.
There aren't enough words in my head to say all the things I can't.
There's not enough blood in my body for all I need to bleed.
There's aren't enough couches in the world for how long I want to sleep.
There's not enough life in me, for all I want to live.
All I've had enough of, is you.

I check what you post like a religion. Probably because your words have given me hope again. Thank you for letting me know I'm not the only one who feels the way I do.

It seems like it doesn't take me long before I learn about a friend...enough to just detach myself from them just enough so that they can always be happy, yet close enough they can always come to me if they need help.

You had me in it right to that last line, and then I began to laugh.

Beautifully written, at the same time extremely saddening.
