I Died in Your Arms Tonight | Short Poem No. 103

It felt like I died in your arms tonight.
And you told me it was merely a dream.
Why was it wrong to assume it was right?
Why was it wrong to miss you when you leave?

You asked, What did I crave in all of this?
Was my thirst only amused with a game?
Because sometimes death is sealed with a kiss.
I have barely even told you my name.

I sat on the earth, staring at the sky.
All our stars fell and I only laid still.
But if I cross your mind again tonight,
Don’t faze yourself presuming how I feel.

It felt like I died in your arms tonight.
And you told me it was merely a dream.

Your Heart Was Not Mine?

  1. Lovely lines, Joey. ”I sat on the earth, staring at the sky.
All our stars fell and I only laid still.
But if I cross your mind again tonight,
Don’t faze yourself presuming how I feel.
    It felt like I died in your arms tonight.
And you told me it was merely a dream.”
