Kryptonite

Dont tell me that lately youve been crying
Some things my heart doesnt need to know
Your words do anything to convince me that youre fine but
I know better than to ignore the feelings you dont show

Whenever you need me, call out my signal, call out my name
In a second Ill take your hand and help you through the flames

Then Ill reveal that S on my chest, and take to the sky
Wherever you are Ill come and find you, no need to hide
Ill take down all your walls, no longer a need for defenses
Im here to fortify whats in your heart, I know it sounds senseless

But when its hard to breathe, Ill be the fresh air that keeps you on solid ground
And just like the beauty in your eyes, you can trust me to always be around
Any hour of the day, throw on my cape, and be with you through the night
Just promise me you wont cry, for your tears have become my kryptonite

Unfortunately all I have to offer is my love and all my trust
So Im hoping that somehow my heart will be enough
Deep inside I know Im full of faults, you can see through my disguise
I'm guaranteed to fall, but fail you I never will; you can see it in my eyes

Just when you thought that your world would crumble, there I am right by your side
Just when you thought no one would save you, I take off my blazer, loosen my tie
Once again your heart is calling, and once again I dont mind
Run into the phone booth and return to your arms
No need to worry, your superman is alive

    Lol, nice poem, I found it a little hysterical actually. Only thing I could say is just watch your syllable count, how much syllables in a line, try not to have too many long lines or else it gets tyring for the reader to read, and i think thats what happened in the middle, but good job though, keep it up.

    Best Wishes
