Black and White

February 14, 2008
By Candice Smith, Franklinton, NC

The Summer's left me with a broken heart,
solitude's the only escape
Your sanity was only a cover;
what we had was fake.

Silenced by the middle men
of this pointless charade.
To scared to face me alone to say
I wasn't worth the wait.

Left me on my own
Thinking I had chosen my fate
Tears hidden by the crashing waves.
Revealed secrets are the worst
when you are left to break.

Searching through my memories,
erasing the colors of my hate.
Reversing time; in black in white
learning from my mistakes.
