Falling StarA Poem by Angelstears
“I need some time to sort out my head,
I’m just really screwed up at the moment.”
Yeah, you’re screwed up, but so am I.
I’ll be waiting for you ‘til the day I die.
“Okay, but y’know, I’ll always be here if you need me.”
God, I sound so pathetic and needy.
“You really mean that…? You’re a star.”
But I don’t want to be a star, I want to be your star.
“We can just try being friends, I’m here if you ever need to chat.”
Why on earth did I say that?!
Does he actually care about how I feel?
Isn’t he even curious about what I want?
“Shall I drive you home now?”
No. I just want to stay a little longer, just sitting next to you.
“Okay, if you want to.”
I can’t lose you after all we’ve been through,
I’ve dealt with two break-ups for you.
Yours is ancient history that still invades your thoughts,
Mine is the present, stupidly I freed myself for you.
“You know, I do really like you…”
How could I possibly tell when you look so smug?
“I know…is it all right, can I ask for a hug?”
It could be my last but I don’t want to force…
“Yeah, don’t be silly, you can, of course.”
A flash of his smile, strong arms surround me.It almost feels worth it.
