Falling Like A Domino

by FlawlesslyTarnished   May 24, 2009

I carved your pretty words, deep inside my heart
I believed in you so strongly, now it's tearing me apart
Ever since I met you, my life began to glow
But now it hurts so much; I'm falling like a domino

I can't stop thinking about what I've done astray
How I could've fixed this, instead of pushing you away
I know I added to your pain; I know I made you cry
I never meant to hurt you,
But you're the one who said goodbye

You tell me that you love me, and this is for the best..
Pushing me away, and leaving me depressed?
You said you'd hold on, and never let me go
I guess that was a lie, cause I'm falling like a domino

I can't see the bottom, but I know you're not there
And once I hit the ground, I can't be repaired
I'm tired of putting the pieces of my heart back together
Maybe it's better just to leave them shattered forever

My heart feels like it's bleeding, cracking from the core
Killing me slowly, for I've stopped fighting in this war
I've given up on all my hope, but I'll never let it show
How much it really hurts me.. I'm falling like a domino

Note: I got the title from a part of a song I liked.
And I just wrote this. I don't really know if the flow is that great, and I know it's not my best work. But I'm just.. really depressed. :/

    I can relate to this, and I'm sure many other men/women can as well. I don't see anything new here, this topic is often written about, but it is definitely understandable as to why. We're a bunch of fools for love, but don't let that ruin your idea of it.

    Wow let me just start by saying this poem was amazing! I added it to my favorites the second I finished reading it. You have a real talent. I don't think anything was wrong with the flow, it flowed pretty good. Im sorry that you're feeling depressed and from reading this I can relate to you and trust me if he's putting you through this pain he isn't worth.

    I feel this is a lyrical ode to the way our unstable actions effect many like the domino effect I also felt the rhythm was excellent I understood that it was one reaction that you were focused on and wish you luck in standing all the dominoes back up

    nice hook
