A Beautiful Accident - Poem by Aiden Florence

This was an accident
It all happened here tonight
Preceeding a moment I lost my mind
And fell in love with you for the first time

So much for such a phrase
Like ‘We’ll love each other forever’

Accidents happen so suddenly
And end so miserably

You wouldn’t notice
When we’re suddenly crumbling

You wouldn’t notice
What you’re doing when you die
Or commit suicide
You wouldn’t feel it
Delicate or innocent
Just a sheer pain
Of knowing you lost the one you love
Forever there’s no turning back
It all ends here
When death do us part

It all happened here tonight
Such a beautiful accident
That ended in tears
When you left me behind

I can’t help but wonder
Why this all has to end here tonight
What’s the point of all this
If something so simple like death
Could take it all away

Would you still believe that
Us having faith makes no sense
When I’m alive and you’re dead?

How pointless would this all be
If we couldn't love each other to death anyway?

    In this waking dream 'all our yesterdays are lighted fools, the way to dusty death' and all our tomorrows are the beautiful accidents. That is how this dream perpetuates. Anyway, this is an impressive poem with keen philosophical insight. Using the words of Shelley, 'Our sweetest songs are those that tell of the saddest thought.' (Report)Reply
