Star-Crossed Blessing
It's not in the lies you make,
Or all the promises you break,
But in the look in your eyes,
Branding me an unwanted prize.

I see you there so craven;
Each day you're inching away,
Without the courage to speak
What the looks on your face say.

So I will take this cue:
"I'm nothing special to you."
Worth only one line at best,
A pathetic failure at your test.

You always try to explain,
But I don't understand at all,
And I can't tell if I jumped
Or was pushed to this fall.

You'll still cry on my shoulder,
And somehow I've gotten older,
But refusing to believe it's a lesson,
Seeing it as a star-crossed blessing.
Author's Notes:
uh I hate doing things like this cuz it often limits a poem, but 'star-crossed' essentially means tragic.

this is a very nice write, i like your style.
we all seem to fail at the 'tests' we are required to take. if only we could rise above the opinions of others, but that is not so.
