Storm Drain

I hate that I've lost you
Because you think you know
What I'm thinking
And you think that I
Am judging, condemning
When I'm not
I'm just angry and
I want to scream out
And tell you
That I thought the world of you-
I still do
And I always believed
You would pick yourself up
After the fall

I grieve our friendship
Which now remains
Just fallen change
In a forgotten storm drain
In quarters, dimes
And a silver nickel

I've lost you
Even though I believe
I believed in you more than anyone
And you would know that
If you'd taken the time
To actually know me.


  1. Wow. Kath I love your poems so much! Out of your new ones I really love this one, Hero, and Who you could be. This actually reminds me of a friendship I kinda broke off when I was in 8th grade. I feel so bad, going to the same high school for 4 years and barely speaking to her. There's a huge chance that we will also be going to the same college and maybe I'll try and apologize... Thanks Kath <3

  2. I think it's one of my favorites now, really touched my heart.

  3. A black dove from your heart to mine.
    Simply beautiful,

    Some Italian guy.
