Love, The inevitable four letter word


United States


It is a four letter word.

spoken in one syllable

I remember the day you left

I fell to my knees

I prayed someone would take away this pain

Three weeks passed by and i saw you with her

I did not eat for days

Punishing my body for not being good enough

For not being perfect enough to hold your attention.

She was everything that I could never be

It had been two months

i remember seeing you in the mall

i thought i was getting better

but seeing you reminded me of all the ways i was getting worse

my grades had begun to slip

months had passed

i found myself turning to dark corners

just to forget this dark unbearable pain

love is a simple four letter word

but it sunk me like the titanic.
