Laying down.

Laying down.

A Poem by JustALotusFlower

Things are passing by.

I've seen your face before.

Do you remember me?

No, of corse you dont.

You looked past me.

As if I was a meire shadow.

Remember when I taught you to sing?

You looked so happy.

You wanted to pursue a singing career.

I supported you.

As time went on,

You grew.

As did I.

You left for college.

I didn't hear from you very often.

Do you remember me?

I stood at the phone, waiting for you to call.

Yet again,

You forgot I was here.

We saw eachother again.

Thanksgiving it was...

You told me you were going on tour.

You fineally had made it in singing.

I told you I loved you.

You left me standing in the doorway.

Time passed again.

I tried to call you.

No answer.

Days turned to weeks.

Weeks to months.

Until one day,

I saw you on the news.

Headline: "Teen shot and killed, performing a concert."

I walked into the street.

And layed down.

Ready to join you.

Darkness envolopes us all. Its the certain part of us that we cannot control. the poetic side of me is dark. you have yet to be consumed by the insanity of life, which consumed me once before. tak.. more..
