Watch as I fall

Ethan Daniel

Stand there as I stand there,

Fall as I fall.

You sit just a few metres away

Yet it feels like an eternity between us.

Alone. Scared. Sad.


I want to walk over and I want to fight for you,

But despair and heartbreak will be all I find.

All I can do is sit here just a heartbeat away,

And watch you talk to him like you used to talk to me.

Fight. Run. Hide.


Why is it that history drives our decisions?

Should we not battle our demons for what we want?

Yet all I can do is sit here whilst you’re with him,

Smiling and happier than I’ve ever seen.


All I want is for you to be happy.

And even though I’m slowly dying,

Your smile is the only thing I want to see.


But I’m begging you please just set me free...
