who what where how when

who what where how when

A Poem by aimless_wanderer

where did the time go?
when did her words sink they're final blow?
how could i have sunken so low?
what did i do to plug our flow?
who am i to extinguish your glow?

there was never enough time
i may have made all of my words rhyme
for you, but there's no way to explain my crime
for that i'm the lemon and you the lime
for we aren't the same, we have nothing in common, and our lives are tuned in different chimes

i was always too oblivious to hear your words
it was as if i were traversing through a blizzard
i couldn't hear because my mind wanders off to listen to the birds
because i didn't know i was pushing you homewards
to the place where the sun always shines, and the birds stayed far from your vineyard

I thought that I was a really nice guy
little did i know i had a tendency to lie
to you, the person i would do anything for, even die
but it was a false world in which i lived for that you would always cry
because my words were so harsh, and that i always ended with "babe, harder i'll try"

what kind of man antagonizes his girl
with no reason except to take a her for a whirl
on the emotional roller coaster that twists and curls
before the conductor who taunts you as if you were a squirell
for that i should have treated you just like a pearl

Your beautiful no matter what
in my heart i knew it, it was even screamed in my gut
but i acted as if you were a mutt
who needed to be caged in like some nut
but everyone knew that you were above the cut

Bags packed, taxis gone, and your gone now
i bet you wished that in my bathtub that i would drown
but i might as well to you for you'll never see me around
because i would have fallen so far down
for who would i be without you
where would i go without you
what can i do without you
how can i function without you
when will you return to whisper your sweet sounds

I began writing pieces of poetry around three months ago. I'm hoping to get better so I won't be too much of a scrub anymore. more..
