Just This Once For You

Just This Once For You

A Poem by RachelReaper
"

yeah, something that I wrote

"

Just This Once For You

I swore I'd never cry

But just this once for you...

Since you can't look into my eyes

I'll cry

I'll cry for our lost childhood

I'll cry more for yours than mine

I'll cry

I'll cry because all that's left behind

Is a stone etched with letters in the ground

And red petals scattered all around

And a mournful trumpet sound

Oh, God, I swore I'd never cry

What's the point when a waterfall streaming down my face can't bring you back

No matter how hard I've tried

But now you deserve a couple tears from me, too

So I swear to you that just this once I'll cry

I'll cry

I'll cry because that shouldn't have been our lives

I'll cry because you shouldn't have been the one to die

Shouldn't have been the sacrifice

Shouldn't have met an early demise

Should've been able to live out your whole life

And though there's nothing left for you I can do

I must say good bye, my friend

One day we'll cross the same bridge again

But in the meantime and just this once for you

I will cry

Wow a powerful piece. I love the structure, the meter, the message. Very heartfelt, the emotion rings so true it makes me think this is based a real life experience. If it is, thank you for sharing this. If not, then you are very good at imagining how you might feel in these circumstances. Either way it is a magnificent write.

You might enjoy a poem I wrote "Don't Leave" it touches on a similar theme.

Great write, I loved it.

Beautiful, Rachel.
I want to cry for... Well for all of it.
You know, I actually really like the repetition of "I'll cry" it stupendously adds to the piece.
Thanks for sharing =]
