I thought I fell in love once.
My heart soared into the sky,
and it didn't seem to matter that people weren't built to fly.
He was the first to know me.
The first I let under my skin,
and somehow I he never really knew me as his friend.
We didn't know each other.
then suddenly we were together.
For some reason my heart believed he'd be there with me in any weather.
Slowly everything crumbled.
The mask over the truth disappeared,
and for the first time we saw each other, only, he saw what he feared.
He couldn't stay.
The more he held me each day,
I knew that with all his soul he wished to run away.
The skies seem to cloud over.
Soon came the rain,
and that was the day that he ran from my pain.
