When you fall in love

You cannot fall out

Is that why

You make me want to shout?

I want to scream

At the sight of your face

At the moments we shared

Gone to waste.

I want to shriek

At the energy spent

Trying to figure you out

And your sly comments.

I want to squeal

With the frustration you brought

With the precious memories

You forgot.

I want to yell

To the heavens

For giving me a reason

To cry.

When you fall in love

You cannot fall out

That is why

My heart is worn out.

  1. Been there, felt that. But i could have never expressed it so eloquently. If i may ask, is it something that you expressed out of past experience or are you a skillful writer?

      I would like to think a little of both ;] lol. I tried to come up with a better answer for you, and after agonizing over it all night this was all I could think of to say ( -_-)

      • No problem! This answer is fair enough. A skillful writer you are, no doubts, but i just wished to know if it had any past attached to it. Thank for the reply. Will stay connected to you for more! Happy Blogging!

        To better answer your question there is some past attached to the poem, but it was like one of those things that kept coming up, you know? It was a feeling that had lasted several years and is brought to the surface every time the person showed up. And that is how I birthed this poem ;]
