"Maybe greatness isn't about being immortal, or glorious, or popular- it's about choosing to fight for the greater good of the world, even when the world's turned its back on you."
-Alex Bailey
"The Land of Stories"


You told me I was yours

you treated me,

Like we were at war,

And 
My

Heart

Sank

For 
You,

Even 
Though

I knew

You never cared about me

You only pretended to,

You left evil with me,

Because that's what you do

Every single day

The colors washed away

Out of my eyes.

Out of my heart.

Out of my mind,

Dripping farther, 

Down

Into

The depths of my soul.

Spinning out of control.

I took a leap and faith and tried to 

Hold on to you.

But my hands slipped through

And I fell hard for you.

The ground hurt my body,

The leaves were no help,

The sky seemed to shout down, 

'There's nobody else!"

I'm wishing that I had seen the real you before this,

Before we shared that bittersweet kiss.

Before I thought I was someone you'd miss.

And I've been asked if you were worth the painful fall.

No.

You weren't worth it at all.

This can be read as a song or as a poem. It was fun to write. It is a purely fictional work.
