I love poems and creative work especially fictional based content.
I keep letting you in,
I keep hoping,
That you will fall fast enough,
Before time teaches me,
To let go of you,
Your words, I can read you fear,
You dwell in void affairs,
You want easy, your used to it.
Everytime I see you,
I lose you a little more,
I crave you less, I care less,
I keep waiting for the child in me,
To finally learn that it isn't you,
I'll keep making you a mistake,
Until I learn from it.
Rejection, like gall,
Is only bitter if you swallow it,
I promise to tread light,
To form walls,
That will only force you to climb,
If you ever seek me,
But how long until I learn,
That your not for me.
