I fell in like with you

Inspired by one of my favorite bands, Rise Against, and the song is called,
“Ever-changing” (Acoustic). Please listen to this song if you don’t know of it. It’s raw &

“Have you ever been a part of something? That you thought would never end. But then, of
course, it did.” –Rise Against

“I fell in ‘Like’ with you”

With her smile
I melted unto oblivion’s redemption
Candy coated perceptions, windows’ gap
Seeping brilliance refreshment

Uncertainty resolution, polished
Absorbed into closeness sun
Yet these eyes still…see
Butterflies taking notice, missing you…as you stood in front of me

Strong, yet soft legs
Foundation of my face to rest upon
A cremated sin 

Yet, elongated moments of silence
Created abruption’s new face

The face of change
When she turned to me and said
“I’m not sure, anymore”

Emotional lullaby, rocking me to sleep
New battles with spectral flashback
Trying to get under my skin, a drunken tick facing demise

Phoenix’s sunrise, rejuvenating my recycled defenses
Yet, today, these rays just aren’t bright enough to burn sadness away

And with these sounds of storm clouds & Fall on horizon’s breath
These grounds are so familiar, yet bittersweet
This heart doesn’t want to be enlightened by karma today

It wants to be held for how it shines now

Denied…distance wins again today
Slavery whipped punishments in miles and blocks
This must end

Because I try to keep lines open to get a call from you
Yet all I hear are booty calls with busy signals

And yet something has kept me here too long
But can they leave me, if I’m already gone?

Something has kept me here too long
Karma’s laughter

But, through it all, I will shine


How I wish my mere presence can bring joy’s tear to her eye

Sadly though, now, the lines are drawn
Yet I wonder if this feeling is gone
Have the best parts of this…come and gone?


Maybe I’ll never know the truth

Perhaps she was misguided by jealousy’s deprivation
Deteriorating heart’s splendor

While I fell in “like” with her

Perhaps “Better Man 2.0” appeared from Cloud 9’s fallacy

While I fell in “like” with her

She held onto the past

As I, drawn to waterfall’s edge
Allowed myself

To let go…and F

    "Butterflies taking notice, missing you…as you stood in front of me" -Really love that line! This entire poem was incredible. I had read it some time before, but I guess I didn't comment on it. I could feel the pain in this uniquely expressed poem. I also really like- "Yet, elongated moments of silence Created abruption’s new face"...I can just feel it going down, and it was a brilliant way to transition. Love this. Always, Laura

    falling in like is much safer than falling in love, Drake. I see that you had this one featured at Soup at one time. Big congrats for that. Loved the ending of this and the little quote you put with it.

    ... but we ran AWAAAYYY HEY!... now all my friends are gone! Maybe we've outgrown all the things that we once loved"... heck yes, another Rise Against fan! Anyway... onto the poem. I'll be honest, I'm not a typical fan of extremely abstract descriptions... but there's something about the way you write that makes me halfway change my mind about it. There seems to a be a cold neutrality in relationships these days... People settling for "like" instead of "love"... adding you to my fave poets list!

    YES!!!!!!!!! A beautiful thing! Yes, there is a much greater distorted definition between like & love. Same thing with "friendship" and just "knowing somebody". Many, many thanks, Tim!!!!!

    Mesmerizing words that flow from your pen like water. Takes the reader deep into your mind where the dreamlike sequence is an enchanting experience.

    Hi Dalila, yes something along those lines. You just started this month? Spectacular! Thank you for coming by here. :)

    Dear Drake, Thank you on your comment of my poem: OF LOVE. It was inspired behind by someone who adores me. Now on this poem of yours, it seems you and your love separated and ended up not liking each other. I like the narrative-like part of your poem. Thank you again for reading my poems. I just started composing poems this April and I am totally immersed in it. Dalila

    @ Michael, yes please do. But, be sure it's the Acoustical version...that's the epic version. Thank you kindly! =) @ Sara, neither have I. But the fact I thought of it...I just had to run with it. I was delighted to read it. It was damn good. Thank you very much for stopping by here. @ Dr. Ram, hard-hitting song isn't it? Thank you so much sir!
