All Wrong

All Wrong

A Poem by Dustin Reichmuth
"

Detour

"
Pathetic
We build these lies, like paper airplanes fly.
I told you I'd stay close by, and I meant it.
So I apologize for being so apologetic. 
We left you alone here in the woods, and we smiled
Drank our drinks, and smoked our songs until we couldn't breathe.
And we forgot of simple things, and angel wings.
But I don't know what to do, what to do, it's all on you.
Apathetic
Those rocks never came so close to our faces.
And I felt the steel, and the cold is tasteless.
So I apologize, for not being there, and pathetic.
Oh, but I know.
That the story will go, and the boys and girls know.
Of a sad tragic tale, that the body would show
How the bruises, contusions, would conquer our world.
Empathetic.
What you saw beneath the broken glass, and silhouettes paints a picture.
You'd remind me for years, and  years that I was with her
That night, I apologized, for not being sympathetic.
And I saw, the shining light that blinded us all with it's might.
Or another freight train, a headlight, coming into us on a night.
The fear in our hearts subsided, as we heard one another 
Just tell me you're all right.
So I don't have to feel all wrong.
