Doubt Pt. 2

Doubt Pt. 2

A Poem by Elisa

Why am I so bad at loving someone?

Hm? Oh, I'm just thinking
Grasping at the strings of your love for me
Searching for a thread of deceit
and I don't know why. 

I think I'm just scared now
That I'm more insecure than I thought I was, 
That writing a sad poem comes easier to me,
Or maybe, just maybe, I still haven't found you. 

It's been thirty-one days
of laughter, tears, trembling, ecstasy. 
You told me you loved me
After thirty-one days

I said it too. 

Yes, I am falling
But as I fall, I brace myself for the concrete 
that will shatter my skull.

You say you're different. 
Doesn't everyone?
