Fake Love

Stealthy in the shadows
Creeping through the meadows
In the black of night
Before the morning light.

To my window he creeps
His love is for my keeps
A single pebble thrown against the glass
Landing with a threatening crash.

It explodes into tiny crystals
In bursts a man bearing a pistol
I lay vulnerable in my bed
As he presses the gun against my head.

I'm told not to speak; I wouldn't dare
The pain is something I could not bear
He rips apart my room
But all I can see is my tomb.

Soon he is gone
Sprinting across my lawn
I thought I loved him
That was such a sin.

I guess I didn't make it very clear, but he was trying to take my heart from me.  I was wearing it on my sleeve.  Unfortunately, I wasn't 100% honest in my description: the guy was treating me terribly after we broke up.  This was kind've just me taking my anger out, but trust me, it wasn't that bad that he broke into my room and pressed a gun against my head, though.

Thanks.  I don't like this one all that much, but I thought I'd post it and see what people thought about it.
