"If we can't protect the world, you can be damn well sure we'll avenge it" -Tony Stark (Portrayed by RDJ)

It’s happening again
Third time’s a charm
And this charm follows me
Dripping off the walls
Sprinkled in my food
It meets me in the road
Litters my house
Trespassing my mind

Of course this is not what I want
Who likes fighting wars?
I’m the one who mistakes tessen for simple fans
I’m the kind that runs into the knife.
And once the first bullet is shot
I can assure you, there is always, always a second

Those against me tend to have good aim
Throwing unforgiving daggers
Straight into my heart
Cutting open scars
Like children cut paper
Like paper cuts skin
Like we pretend cuts don't hurt
And then I place my paper body on the shore
Bass passing over me in waves
Carefully calculating every move
And for the third time
I fall

The author's comments:
This poem is my personal take on what it’s like to fall for someone. But instead being something cheery and joyous, I’m writing about what it’s like to fall for someone you know you can’t have. It’s something everyone can relate too, and something I can relate to a lot. It’s about starting, for the third time, to actually, truly like someone, and at the same time, know that it’s someone you can never EVER be with. You know, the one that’s taken, the ex, or in my case, the best friend.
I want to publish this so other people like me can know that they aren’t alone, and that someone there feels the same way. I’m not trying to console anyone, or tell them it gets better, or not to worry. I’m simply here to show people it’s okay to be sad and feel the way they do.
