Anywhere But Here

Rating: 4.7

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.

When everyday we fell in Love more and more.

But now everything is covered in Snow.

I sense the end is near.

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

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