Star-crossed

Star Crossed

The heart sounds
Resounds
With the mundanity
Of all of it

Why does boredom
Have to hurt so much?
It’s not boredom
It’s fear

In that one song 
He said it:
Life is a fear
Of 
Falling

And
He
Wasn’t
Wrong

I spent myself
On withered leaves
Because 
Like them

My value was lost
On me upon
The coming season
As I knew

All along
We were 
Star-crossed
Still we were

Our own

Magic
