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 […]

Star-crossed
