Anywhere But Here

We stand together on the pier.
I wish I were anywhere but here.
I search for words to say,
But the wind would only steal them away.
And it seems as though we're falling apart, like a dried out heart.
I wish we were like we once were before,
When everyday we fell in Love more and more.
Where did all our Love go?
Our Love was once a warm Summer day,
But now everything is covered in Snow.
I sense the end is near.
I wish I were anywhere but here.

I love this Derek, as I've said to many poets in the past, everything changes, nothing stays the same. Good poem.---Melvina--
rhyming couplets always make a poem sound forced - abandon them and you have better lexical choices available. Nice sentiments though
Desperately awesome. Love the poem. thumbs up. *wish you could make your poems a bit longer...*
Hello Derek, .....Your poem feels sad and alone, yet very nicely wrote. With Respect, Jodilee
