This poem is not based on true events by the way 🙂
I thought I’d fall in Love by Destiny NowlinI had a future. I had dreams. I had my whole life in front of me. Now I have what I never thought was real. Just something that people talked about. And now it’s taking over me. It’s taking all i’ll ever be. And I can’t fight it. And I can’t stop it. It’s taking over me. I used to run away from my fears but now my fears are in my tears and so now i just close my eyes and die in the inside, lonely and afraid. It was just that one night when I thought i’d fall in love and now i’m falling and falling into this darkness called HIV. and all that I wish for is all that I can’t see. And all that I hope for is all that I don’t believe. And my friends at school just stare. they don’t talk to me, they don’t care. all because of me and this stupid boy who ran his hands through my hair. Lied to me and told me he loved me and told me, he’d never leave me, but now I’m alone. In this darkness called HIV. But you see, all this wasn’t supposed to happen to me, I had a future. I had dreams. I had my whole life in front of me. I just wanted to fall in love. Now I just wish I kept my virginity I just need some space, I’m feeling out of place. I think it’s time for me to face the facts. It was just that one night when I thought I’d fall in love and now I’m falling and falling Into this darkness called HIV And all that I’m saying is all that was unsaid. because I’m dead.
