Gold and Green

by Suicidal Love   Aug 9, 2008

No reply when I call
You scare me
Are you safe at home
Tucked up in your bed?
Or out on the pull
Like the old days?

'Paint the town red'
You'd say, 'no scrap that',
It made me laugh,
'Paint it gold and green
And so many more'
We'd chant in unison

The old days were the best
Laughing and screaming in the park
Road trips that took forever
Blaring our songs out to the world
Singing along like there's no one to hear
Out of tune every time

But now you're different
Or maybe its me
There's no longer laughing
Or singing to the world
Times change, as did we
For theres no answer when I call

    I don't see this as a family or friends poem, more of a sad or dark poem, but still good enough. 5/5 from the PoetryKnight
