Beneath the Evergreen

January 19, 2010
Why is it,
That you never leave me
How is it,
That I always long for you even when I told myself I wouldn’t

I find myself tumbling downward
Falling so hard
All the while wising you would catch me at the bottom

You leave me Unsure
At moments I feel as if I am the happiest person,
But there are times where I just can’t smile.
Your Lips against mine Filling me with joy But where was the joy from?
As you hold me My heart flutters Not wishing to let go But everything has to end

But why was it us that ended who is at fault?
What is the cause?

Was there real meaning behind that fall afternoon
where you kissed me beneath the evergreen

Was the mist that a fell upon us,
a sign of Tears to come

Or was the silence that surrounded us
A way of foretelling the loneliness that would soon encase me?

We were to entirely different Beings
Yet we were so alike at the same time.

Like a soft hand picking a rose,
Your thorns left a mark upon me,
Did I leave a mark?

Did I even matter to you
Most of all did I even know you?
Or did you just wear a mask,
fooling me, with your sweet words,
your beautiful smile.

Wanting answers but gaining silence
What is it about you that made me fall so hard,
why cant you just get out of my head

For if you leave me unsure
I don’t want to be hurt by you

Our relationship like a puzzle,
in complete disarray,
Missing pieces here and there,
but we still strive to finish it,
for although we only gain a fragment of what was to be,
We will know that we didn't give up

Beneath the evergreen,
where our lips touched ever so softly,
the mist falling upon us,
the crisp scent of fall surrounding us,
your arms around me,
keeping me warm,
A moment so perfect, must always come to an end
If only it could have lead to many more moments…
