a poetry collection The Touch of Love CHAPTER 1 Author: andreyaceleste Crush We live the pain and sorrow I cannot reveal. It’s like I’ve been shocked from an electric eel. Maybe love was all a mistake. I took it for granted and the regret I must take. Living all alone is the debt I must pay. All my years of friendship slowly fading away. They were right, never get a crush. They say crushes crush your soul like a fragile bowl. Never get a crush, they linger in your mind. I sit at night, no one hearing my cries. Why did I think doing this was alright? She’s what he wants, I no longer feel bright. Just leave me alone, with no one to care for. Dying in the dark, rotten to the core.
