Day 23 POEM: Falling

May 15, 2016

Falling, March 21, 2005

 

once again

i've spotted a pretty eyed boy

and i can't resist his warm embrace

he speaks to me, soft words of poetry

flowing off his singing voice

and i'm falling

 

something in my heart dances to the sound

and i'm so sure it's love

he tells me what i want to hear

as he whispers softly as he kisses my neck

and i'm falling

 

so i give him what he wants

because i love him today

and he says he loves me too

but he won't hold me close as i cry

and i'm falling

 

something in my heart weeps to the sound

and i'm alone again

he's pulled away

left me, and i'm so hurt

and i'm falling

 

once again

he's singing the words of sweet poetic lines

and holding close in a warm embrace

all those thing that he gave to me

he's giving to someone else

and she's falling

They say that the English language is one of the hardest languages to learn. One of the reasons being that many words have different means though spelt the same. Falling for instance. In this poem it means falling in love as well as falling down. Ok, I know it's not the same thing as read and read. But you get my point. It's actually one of the reasons I like this poem, because of the different meanings.
