.
                                                We always fall
                                                                                together.




                                                We fell
                                                                in love
                                                                with each other.


And later, when

You fell
                out of love
                with me

(and fell
                under her spell)

                                                                                I fell
                                                                                                from the pedestal
                                                                                                you'd put me on.

                                                                                I fell
                                                                                                from cloud nine
                                                                                                and crashed to ground.

                                                                                I fell
                                                                                                from heaven
                                                                                                into depths of hell.


                                                                                And because

                                                                                I fell
                                                                                                for your lies
                                                                                                and empty promises,

                                                                                I fell
                                                                                                apart.



                                                We always fall
                                                                                together.
About falling.

Nice. A little generic and a teeny bit sappy, but a creative composition. Well done.

i'm listening to jeff buckley sing, 'we all fall in love sometimes'.


is that a weird coincidence?

(it's nice... the falling in love part. it's just the landing that we need to be careful of. some people aren't too grounded these days.)

Weird coincidence indeed, and yeah, when you fall and land wrongly it hurts like hell.

Thats great! Great idea, and well written. I like the typographical presentation here, a lot of times it seams to get in the way, but it works very well with this piece.

It also sounds slightly sinister, but thats not an insult!!!
Like when you say you fell apart, then how u always fall together, it's just... i dno. slightly threatening. sorry if i'm babbling and no insult intended!! :hug:

amazing poem. in the start, it seems like you were talking about happiness, then the meaning of 'fell' became a totally different thing.

awesome work. :)
