What's this?
Something in the world's amiss,
and I don't know what it is.

I'm just sitting here by myself,
watching the dust settle.

Breathing is easy,
when no one is watching.

So I'll close my eyes,
and you can walk away easily.

I love out of only a few lines and words, you make such powerful poems.

...one word from you will silence me forever. If, however, your feelings have changed, I will have to tell you: you have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love....I love...I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on. -Mr. Darcy

I really enjoy this poem, too! I like how you write with a simple style but it really makes your poems pop! Great job :)

This is a unique poem, I don't see many couplets so this is rare. But it totally works. Good job! The emotion if very strong as well
