Fallen In - Poem by Mrs. Cynosure

She promised me a
“Better life”
As we moved in there
I hated it
Something’s don’t change
For nothing will be the same

After we moved in I lost something
Something so vital in
My upbringing
That I would not be the same person I am today
That something
Would be my family
They turned into just
People I live with
Day to day

The longer we stayed
The longer we got comfortable
The bigger the hole got
And the littler the latter got
At one time the latter was only half as tall as the hole
But we kept on digging and digging and digging
To where the hole is to big to deep
To climb out of

Now it’s as if we all are stuck in the middle
Big hole with no way out
So someone is smothering us
Since we all have
Fallen in

    I really do not give 10's but this gets a 10 from me...
    It is easily one of my favorites on this entire sight.
    simple and complex, so much like true feelings.
