Falling

By myself I can run and hide
Where you won’t find me
By myself I have peace of mind
But would you miss me?

For a time I go far away
Do you feel alone
I don’t miss the emptiness
For you have filled that hole –
You are in my soul.

If ever I am falling down
Would you steady me
And if I were to lose my ground
Would you fall with me?

As I find my peace of mind
While wandering by the sea
I realize I can’t deny
Looking at this vast blue
I want to be with you.

And oh how hard I am falling now
Will you fall with me
If we can reach some common ground
Will you stay with me?

So I was watching a movie the day I wrote this, and it had a guy singing songs he wrote. I liked the tune to one of them, so I kind of wrote my own lyrics to it. My poem isn’t half as good as his song, but I like it. Feel free to tell me what you think.

If you’re interested in hearing the song that inspired me to write this poem, click here.
