The Dark

January 7th, 2011

I flew across the room
Feeling something I’d never felt before
Lifted up
To have you walk out the door
In the dark
You showed me light
And being with you
Somehow felt so right
But the warmth was taken
And I was left alone
I didn’t like the feeling
Being on my own
I was in the dark
I was feeling so blind
And you were already gone
Without me in mind

Lost in thoughts
If I’ve done something wrong
Messages go unread
Like you’re dragging me along
Rewrite my poetry
Until the meaning is gone
Lose you in the verses
Where you didn’t belong
Letting you go
Letter by letter
I won’t stay on the sidelines
Knowing I deserve better
