Expression is easy
It is hard to hit the target
stop, Aim. Fire.
Oh no. I missed,
You misunderstood,
the words i used
were meant only for good
I must have picked the wrong combination
used at the wrong time, in the wrong manner
spoken in the wrong tone
now your back is all I see
as I’m left here alone
a foreseen circumstance
I never stood a chance
from the start i was
idealistic. unrealistic
completely and utterly
over optimistic
a message fallen
on deaf ears
a heart that hurts
at the sound of tears
crashing. hitting the ground
delving deeper
shocked by the skeletons found
