I just don't get it

Why one minute I'm in the air

And you're the one lifting me

But in the next moment

I'm staring down from the top

Watching anxious faces peer up at me

And they all think they can stop me

But they just don't know

Don't know what it's like

To watch you with her

When I am the one that

Needs you most

So I am teetering on the edge

The brink of inanity

And I close my eyes

Your picture swarms into mind

With a smile that

Strikes me as so innocent

And I stumble away

No longer willing to


A/N: It's been a really long time since I've written poetry, and I just want to know what people think because I'm considering submitting something into my school's literary magazine. Please review!
