About the Poem

This poem is about that someone that you think you've fallen in love with. You get together, then they just forget about you. After that, sometime later, they decide they want to come back into your life but its too late.

Paradise Pier

Standing on the edge of Paradise
Someone waited too long.
The door has shut, the moment passed,
stupidity will hit soon,
if it hasn’t already.

Do you remember what it looked like?
Do you imagine every day
what it would be like?
Can you imagine your life there?

Standing there in front of me
you waited too long.
My eyes have opened, your chance is gone.
We’ll all feel bad at the end,
if we don’t already

Do you remember what I looked like?
Do you imagine every day
what I’d be like?
Can you imagine your life here?

All the never ending nights
have all ended
with you on one side
and me on the other.
We stood too long
peering into Paradise.

This poem touches my heart and it did so because I am the person that Shauna Keimig is talking about. She's from kansas and i'm from california. We dated, broked up due to miscommunication and drifted apart after our hang out spot was shut down. If you know her, have her email me please.
Been there, done that they say. So do I. This is a magnificent study from an internal point of view. Great! Chris
You just can't write such a striking poem, if you don't feel exactly like what you are writing... Simply great...
