NaNoWriMo 2011 Day #17

i'm falling in between
the cracks of your kindness
it hurts to see your smile
holding back the sadness

it meant something to me
when you promised soft and sweet
but this curse inside my head
gives no hope of peace

if i would think it through
maybe i would see
maybe i would realize
i am nothing to you

Teehee. There's a character poem for Hunter, a secondary MC in my NaNoWriMo novel, Gemfire. He's been through some rough times and I thought this suited him so well, I just had to share. The lack of punctuation and capitalization is a bit of a style thing, because it's happening when he's pouring his heart out and absolutely ready to die. Silly boy. I can't kill him off right after I just went to all the trouble to write him in...LOL.

Happy nanoing to my fellow wrimos!
