you dont kno what you have till it gone

I see you slipping,
Falling from sight,
I try to reach for you,
Try with all my might,
I hear myself call for you,
And that's when I realize
That you don't want me to.
You don't want me to catch you,
You weren't even bumped,
You're not slipping at all,
You jumped

I absolutely loved this! Especially the last line; it conveys both a bone-deep sadness and a helplessness that resonates deep within the reader. Or at least it did with me :)

"I see you have a sword. I have one too. They're very ... manly. And ... tough."

Wow, I have to say, I usually hate poems that have any sort of rhyme scheme. But this gave me shivers. It seems like you used the light-hearted lilting of a rhyming poem to get at something much deeper, maybe even darker. I think this is a fantastic piece.
