Literature Text

Night settled around us,
And we stood still amongst the flurry of bodies.
My veins pulsed with the unspeakable.
I was so frightened, but we barely embraced
All I wanted was for you to stay;
To hold me close and tell me it was going to be ok;
To make me feel safe again.

The darkness swallowed you up.
I could not see past the flashing lights,
And the noise of it all.
You left me there, alone.
Because there was nothing to keep you;
Because you don't care for me anymore;
Because I am no longer your cross to bear.
Wee wee wee, all the way home.

I can't believe I'm so mainstream as to think of Muse's "Starlight" when reading about wanting to hold someone or be held. Ugh...

In other news, lovely poetry :)
