Anywhere But Here - Poem by Derek Germain

We stand together on the pier.
I wish I were anywhere but here.
I search for words to say,
But the wind would only steal them away.
And it seems as though we're falling apart, like a dried out heart.
I wish we were like we once were before,
When everyday we fell in Love more and more.
Where did all our Love go?
Our Love was once a warm Summer day,
But now everything is covered in Snow.
I sense the end is near.
I wish I were anywhere but here.

    I love this Derek, as I've said to many poets in the past, everything changes, nothing stays the same. Good poem.---Melvina-- (Report) Reply

    rhyming couplets always make a poem sound forced - abandon them and you have better lexical choices available. Nice sentiments though (Report) Reply
