Falling Under

Darkness fills the quiet room

In it I sit

Muscles all

Still

I am alone not

Letting anyone in

Not you

Especially

You.



Staring out the window

Toward pure and endless

Gloom

Remembering my first

Real and true

Love.



Growing

As one

Sharing thoughts

Opinions

Telling anything

Thinking you were listening

To me

Thinking you would catch me

As I would

You.



Little did I know

I was wrong

You were merely

Acting to care

Letting me deal

With double the problems

At hand.



Fairy tales endings are

Happy

Shielding children from

Pain

Things are either black

Or white

Growing up they turn

Gray.



Your white house was always

Spotless

Leaving me to feel its glow

Intensely hot

Fiery

Stable

Free

Things I wished happened

With you

With me.



For the time it took

To get

Here

So fast

You deserted me

Even though we were

Best friends

Without good-bye

You left.



Wanting to follow

In my mind

You were my prince

But you left

And left me

To fight the tears of devotion.



For no reason

Or rhyme things

Change

Growing up

Apart

Would have happened

Whether I liked it

Or not



I was always

Holding on

Not letting truth set in

You didnít care about

Me

To the depth

I cared

For you.



So soon you

Forgot

Yet I always held tight

Tighter than a little girl

Should

Ever

Have to.



When I close my eyes

Despite everything

I see you

Then to wake

Without you

Is

Terrible.



Lately Iíve been

Miserable

Iíve only you to blame

If running to the moon

Would have brought

You

To me

Iíd be there

Then back

Before you would

Realize

That I

Was gone.



No moon

There is

Nothing

You've

Gone

Left me

Here

In a quiet dark space.



Hard to keep my secret

Safe

Not let it show

Yet every time I see

You

It reminds me of when

You were

Mine.



Sitting

Still

Never blinking

To keep the tears from falling

Down my cheek

Your

Not

Worth them.



No Friends to comfort me

Iím falling

Under

And not allowing a

Soul

To

See.
