"I am not a person, I am a shell"
~Cody


Under my skin
Your love is crawling
Filling me up to the brim
Am I falling?
Falling for you?
I can’t believe didn't see it
See the love in your eyes
I simply walked by
And you were gone
I looked down at my feet and I cried
weren’t mine
Were you?
After a while I settled my scores
I was alone again
Alone in my own head
Until you found me
You took my hand
We ran away
And to this day
That’s where we’ll stay
Hand in hand
Holding tight
Don’t let go
I fear you might
I know that I’ve fallen
But have you fallen too?
If you left now
I would fall
Out of my life
And into the depths
Of nothingness
Don’t leave me here
Alone
To dry my own eyes
To lead my own life
Don’t go
Because I’ve fallen
Fallen for you
And I can only hope
That you’ve fallen too


The author's comments:
This poem was inspired by a very special person in my life, and upon finding him I spontaneously wrote this poem out of the joy in my heart. I hope you can all hear the words in this poem, and think of someone that's special to you when you read this. After all, no love will ever last forever. Cherish what life has given you.
