Thinking of You

Paramore buzzing in my ears
Just laying there in bed
All my thoughts and fears
Filling my mind with dread.

"Maybe if my heart stops beating,
It won't hurt this much."
Maybe then I'll stop needing
And wanting you so much.

I don't want to let you go
But with you so far away
Maybe you shouldn't know
Just exactly what I want to say.

As I'm lying in my bed
Quietly awaiting sleep
Music filling up my head
I realize I shouldn't have fallen so deep.

Very deep and meaningful. I see a lot of poems with a rhyme scheme like this and it sounds really weird, but the rhyme scheme worked for this one. :)

This is well written. It tells a story, and it tells is simply. Im my opinion that's the best way. It's the other end of the scale without using too much detail and description, but still being quality poetry at the same time. (: I like it a lott
