Status: Finished  |  Genre: Poetry  |  House: Booksie Classic

seeing too many failed high school relationships

Footsteps echoing down the hall

fading into slow murmurs of heartache

guitars screaming the players pain

walls bleeding your tears

love will never be enough


always crying over a lost love

roses broken and scattered all over

each telling their own story

secrets spilling out over their lips


sorry won't heal these deep pains

why must we expeirement on others hearts

trying to find ourselves

we won't let the pain escape our wounded clutches


weary boys and girls trying to make themselves whole

never forgetting the last one they wounded

tears spill over dripping one by one


it will never be enough

roses trampled on

pure white snow dirtied by their secrets

broken trying to be whole

reaching out for nothing

songs screaming our pain
