Waste


More by this author
Once upon a time
In a land so very far away
I thought it was alright
Just to go outside and play
Thought it was okay to waste my time loving today
And not think about tomorrow
But now I see so suddenly
That rhythm and rhyme have hurt me
Pulled me down to depths
Where the pressure is too much
And I’ve fainted
Grown cold
Withered away
I’ve formed a creature whose stuck in the
Everyday
Who never gets away
From her work
Of making everyone believe she can breathe underwater

I like the opening rhyme, and the lack of form as the verse progresses. It rhymes, but then again it doesn't, and that's just awesome :) Shows a lot of depth and perspective...I'm hoping to see this one published some day!
