#1 Forgotten Series- If It Were You…

If it were you,

 

You’d have lost more than tears,

Countless drops falling on the parquet floor.

 

You would miss more than me,

Classes and books laying unattended to.

 

You would question more than trust,

Your days and times merging coldly as you go.

 

So I guess it’s good that it is me.

 

If it were you,

 

You’d die in the quiet of a house in the woods,

Despising the walls for not being friends.

 

You’d freeze in the cold of a body without warmth,

As anyone you hold dear is anywhere but here.

 

You’d float through life on an unconscious cloud,

With empty bottle contents contained in your breath.

 

So I guess it’s good that it is me.

 

As it is me,

 

I welcome the pain.

I let it serve as I reign.

 

I take all the blows and make it poetry…

 

So I guess it’s good that it is me.

  1. Another masterpiece 🙂

  2. It is so much easier to be alone than to be lonely. I can only hope that me and all the people I hold dear in this world find their place in the world, and conquer loneliness in the process.

    Your words cut, E. Very nice.

So, what do you think?
