Taking Down the Cards


Another card on the wall

Another person that I've lost

For no reason at all

Their wishing for happiness

Don't matter anymore

I count them

One by one

The first lost because she wasn't good enough

Another because of an enemy not shared

A third because I couldn't keep the contacts

The rest falling into some category in between

One by one, slotting into place

But mainly I lost them all

Because I thought that I was better than them

And I was striving towards an unrealistic goal

Another card on the wall

Fluttering from my limp hand to the ground

Because I cant stand seeing the reminder every day

That reminder to the fact that I was the one that destroyed my happiness


A/N: Another piece inspired by something simple. This time it was b-day cards I had stuck on my wall. I read the names and realised how many friends I'd lost. And here was this poem.

Okay, just random, but if you like fiction stuff like twilighty things please check out my story Even Angels Fall, under my other account HighOnBrokenWings

Hope you enjoyed :D
