catch me

you with your everlasting charm
and lips
that held whispered promises of forever
but our definitions of forever must be different
because while we stand under the same domain
it isn't my hand that you're holding
not my ear
that you fill with empty promises
and false love...
at least not anymore
i remember
when you looked into my eyes
and said " I Love you"
those three words that i have always wanted to hear
and yet told never to trust
but i was only a teenager!
needing to feel security
needing to know that at least someone loved me
so trust i did
but i could never understand
how you could be so deaf
when words left my mouth
or how i could be so blind
as not to see that i meant worse then nothing to you
your eyes
that were green one moment
and then gone the next
still burns in my memory
is it that in which endeared me to you?
and you taught me that there is no pain in this world
comparable to that of a broken heart
like fire being laid in lines
across your skin
and it is all consuming
leaving you feeling
void
empty
hollow inside
your mind was quick to cast judgement
and your tainted tongue
quick to poison truths
and now I'm falling
fighting against the tide of tIme
because although i fell for you
you never bothered to catch me

I like this poem. The story is nice, and word choice is excellent. :)
