Free Falling

Tell me I am nothing

That's what everyone else does

 

Tell me that I am crazy for falling in love!

Call me insane, because that is how I feel

being in love when the love is less than real

 

Unrequited

thats what they call it

 

Scream it from the roof tops

until my lungs give out

my knees drop and

my heart stops beating

 

Hoping that you'll be there to catch me

 

But you're not

 

You never are

You never were

You never will be

 

I've set myself up for a kill

 

Falling into an abyss

It all started with a simple kiss

 

Tell me I am nothing

That's how you make me feel

 

Tell me my feelings for you are not real

Let me escape from this emotional plane

 

I don't feel like flying anymore

So I'm crashing down,

no subtle whisper

just empty sound

 

You've shot me down

This poem is about: 
Me
