Before I Fall

by BeautifulxMess   Jun 2, 2008


So the story begins once upon a time,
The year was 1999.
One little girl who tries to escape,
And running from her own fate.
No one knew or talked to her at all,
Nobody answered her call.

She called for help as she weeped and cried,
But she knew one day she'd fly.
How she wished to just runaway,
But she had no where else to stay.
Reality flashed before her dreams,
and nothing was what it seems.

Her dad lived on alcohol all his life,
And her mom cut herself with a knife.
Her dad had a women in another town,
And her mom's pregnant because she slept around.
Her mom calls her a brat and a know-it-all,
And takes pleasure from seeing her fall.

Bruises fade away but they will remain,
And she'll find her strength again.
She will always carry her heart on her sleeve,
And one day she will finally leave.
She kneels beside her bed at night,
And holds her hands tight.
Prays to get away from it all,
"God catch me before I Fall."

    Very nice write. Good flow, the concept was good, and the word choice was decent. One thing I have to say is, don't try so hard. This poem felt a little forced.

    A simply stunning piece of poetry. beautiful words, but painful meaning at the same time. i really adored this piece, it moved me

    She called for help as she weeped and cried,
    But she knew one day she'd fly.
    How she wished to just runaway,
    But she had no where else to stay.

    and nothing was what it seems.
