My pen is silent
Your shadow no longer fall over me

The tear-stained paper screams your name
The poem upon the tattered pages never to see the light of day

It was simple short and sweet
A few more hours together and you would have seen

Seen why I was so distant
Why I was not paying attention

Consumed by love
Blinded by pride

I wanted the perfect poem
A poem befitting the sparkle in your eyes

Something so special you would break down and cry
A poem that would give a school girl the giggles

But that’s over now
All because someone else paid attention a little bit more

Another wrote a poem a little bit faster
Left my pen silent
And my life a complete disaster…
