Falling

I’m falling,
And you don’t seem to care
I’m falling,
But you don’t want to know that
I’m falling,
And I don’t know how to stop
I’m falling,
But you don’t want to know that

Days, Months, Years have passed,
I’m falling,
I may have always been falling,
Falling deeper and deeper,
Falling but I don’t understand why,
Falling but I don’t know what to do about it,

Your different,
I’m different,
Before I thought I was done falling,
Falling deeper and deeper into like with you,
Falling and I wonder if it’s normal to feel this,
Sure it is, but sometimes I doubt it does,
Doubt like it only happens to me,
Until I hear other girls say how they feel for a boy.

Seeing their crush,
And suddenly no one else matters,
Looking into their eyes
And they forget everything,
Talking to them,
And half the time you just forget
Forget what you even said,
Forget everything about what you’ve said,
Forget everything,
Except those eyes,
Those eyes are the only thing you remember the most,

Falling and I think,
Am I falling because,
Falling because of him?
Falling because I’ve met him?
Falling because he’s different even if he doesn’t show it?
Falling for some stupid reason that I can’t think of?

I’m falling,
And I think about him once again,
I’m falling now,
And thinking about what’ll happen,
What’ll happen when I see him again,
Every girl thinks like that,
Every girl understands,
Even though they might not say it
Reject it, and tell you they never have,
Every girl has,

I’m falling,
Before I met him I wasn’t falling this hard,
I wasn’t falling this fast in the night of colorful dreams,
Sure it may sound cheesy,
Sure it may sound stupid,
But it’s how I feel when I see him,

I’m falling,
Deeper and deeper in like with him.

AWWW this is really cute. I like it. And a lot of the times when I'm reading a poem if it's long like this one, I'll just skim it or not read the entire thing, but this one kept me going. Good job!

it would be cool for you to play around witht the position of the stanzas... this might work well because your poem is about falling... it would add a visual effect to it
