Falling, falling out of my reach
I grasp as it slips through my fingers
I catch it, gripping it in my hands; I cling to it like a leech
As it again falls from my grip, I watched it as it falls
Desperately I try to piece it back together
Leaving everything behind, I try not to look back
I see into a mirror and instantly I begin to hate her
She stares back at me, she challenges me
She teases me and I throw the mirror to the floor
It breaks into tiny pieces, as she still stares back
I just cannot take it anymore
The tiny pieces I cannot fix
It is out of my reach, it has gone too far
No one can fix it now; I will not have to see her again
In everyone’s memory she fades like a dying star

misery is so beautiful

this is a realy good poem. It realy made me think about how somethings that you want you can't have no matter how bad you want it or how hard you try to get it. You should post more poems 'cuz I think your a realy great writer.
