Their Gone - Poem by Dayna Verhulst

Everyone’s gone and I am all alone
I wish they would just come home
But they don’t even phone.
I will remember the long nights
The imaginary fights
Sometimes to scared
To turn out the lights

They have all left
And I’m still here
So now you see the problem
My sweet dear
Do you see the tear?
As it trickles down my cheek
The pain is starting
To make me weak

They get to fly
'Cause the don’t have any ties
That hold them to the ground
They get to leave the town
I wonder if their destiny’s
They have found
Or if their life just tumbled down

I have to live my life
Like It’s just a dream
Or I think I would just scream
I have lost my team
The teenage terrors
Are no more because
Our numbers will be
Down to four
And then they will move on
And walk out the door

They get to leave
The fear and the blame
And go to a place
That has no name
Sunshine and rainbows
Are no more
Except at the time
Of a quarter to four
When they can go through
The door in the floor
In a place with no name
Where no one can ever harm them again

As you read this you doubt I am sane
You think that all I want is a little bit of fame
And yes that true for some one other then me
I just want people to see that we were alive
And we had lived and no you can’t just say
“ Oh well your just kids”
‘Cause it’s not the number of your days
That you have lived it’s the life you chose to live
And the time that you chose to give

Some day I hope to be gone too
Maybe some day I will say hello to you
And we will talk for a minute or two
Then we will go home and be back to being alone
But maybe I wont be so sad
‘Cause you are out there in the world unseen
And I will remember when I was a teen.

(most people wont get what this poem is about but it came from my heart so i hope you don't try to understand it but just enjoy it)
