Escaping Back To You

Poem By Frederick Francis

On this paper I wrote all that I wanted to be.
It was such a wonderful tale of us together.
You tore it to pieces right in front of me;
Dashed each one of my dreams of forever.

You were gone, then returned in a different form.
All the shreds of me that you had torn,
You were the wind that made the pieces flea;
I grasped for them but they moved too fast to see.

I gathered a piece here and there.
With each little shred my hope would gain.
Our passions fire started to warm away my despair.
Until you returned once more as the rain.

So I started again, just when I thought it was nice,
You manifested once more as frigid ice.
In my misery I started to feel this darkness could be fun.
Then, you bitch, you came back as the sun.

When I gave up and just decided to sit on my ass;
You grew up around me as green green grass.
So I ran far away to a barren land
Where I knew you could never be the sand.
And there you were with my paper held tight;
So I held you close with all my might.

You cannot escape from the one your heart has loved... no matter how far you go, you will just be escaping back to her! . Wonderful poem, top mark.
