Over Before it Dared Begin

Stage speakers and screams swallow all other sound,
Sea of arms, a look around,
One glance ensues a fade out,
Chuck Taylor’s and stud in mouth,
You’re there but sure aren’t in tact,
My pulse just consecrates fact.

To like them a little broken, here’s to looking in a mirror,
Your façade screams strength to cover fear.

It’s not the first job I’ve taken on,
But it’ll vanish as the dawn,
I’ll leave a part of me with you,
It will hurt, but I always pull through,
You may win them over, but it’s easy to see,
You’re broken, darling, just like me.

The author's comments:
This poem's about a girl at a concert who sees this guy who seems a little shaken. She's attracted to him as she is attracted to most boys she wants to fix, as if her relationships are hopeless cases. She knows it's not in her to fix them, and it always ends because of it, even if she's fallen in love with them, It's like leaving little peices of her behind with all she's shared with these people and it leaves her just as broken as the ones she's tried to fix.
