It got dark so quickly tonight


It got dark so quickly tonight

Dark on my heart

And my heart breathed to be okay

But itís chained in barbed wire

Of life Ė I tire.


I broke up tonight

My heart wasnít spared

The silence was deafening between us

Hate this stiffening sorrow

Canít face tomorrow.


I built a fortress around my heart

Tried to make my heart the centre of a well protected castle

Soldiers, a moat, towers where I could see you coming

But you knocked it down with one swift stare

It was a hundred arrows to my heart.


Itís a long way from me to you

We are two steps apart

It might as well be countries

Wish god would save me

Wish god would make me brave.


I blame myself and the blame turns inwardly

It almost breaks my heart when I get like this

Wasting my youth in dark spells

But every time I climb the mountain

I always end up back down again.


Do you ever wish you were someone else?

Someone without all my traits that are starting to annoy me

Do you ever dream that life is going to change?

Do you ever wish you could rearrange your life?

Because I do.

There is a lot of despair and sorrow within your lines, Laura....It brings the reader to the emotion that you are writing...Loved your title, too~! Good job of expression....
