Slipping Away

Slipping Away

A Poem by Aurora .I.

Work in progress!

Looking back in the past
I shouldn't have said a thing
I shouldn't have kept that key
I should have thrown it away
But I continued, stubbornly, to hold that key
Pressing it to me, holding it dearly
Thinking that maybe
It'd bring you closer to me
But in actuality
It was foolish of me
Because the more I held on
The more I lost you day by day
And eventually, my key slipped away
Now you won't answer
Won't tell me what's wrong
You refuse my help
And as much as you say
"Friends? We'll always be."
I cry at night because I know
My key has already slipped away.

I realize I probably shouldn't say 'Growing up' because I'm still growing. Does anyone else do that? I assume it's because I don't feel my age. Shrug. Anyway- My name is Aurora! I live in the gigan.. more..
