A Poem of Books- Original Poetry

I got this idea from this year's booktubeathon and desperately wanted to give it a try myself. The aim is to make a poem, monologue or story wholly out of book titles. Obviously, I went with a poem and I'm so proud of it. I managed to get at least one title in each line and it makes sense! Oh, the joy!
The Goodreads link to each book will be put beneath the poem if you want to check any of them out.

Since You've Been Gone,
I've been unravelling, Undone.
I'm simply a Passenger,
In a City of Lost Souls.
My Torment will Never Fade,
My Silence a Queen of Shadows.
But, still, I don't let it Shatter Me,
For my strength is An Ember in the Ashes.
When We Collided,
It was The Unexpected Everything.
We were Falling Fast, Soulmates, The One,
Everything Everything.
We lived in The Spectacular Now,
Dreaming of Something Like Fate.
There was Power in our Passion,
And I loved you With All My Soul.
But we were Faking Normal,
Throwing stones in Glass Houses.
We realised our Ugly Love,
accepting The Impossibility of Tomorrow.
That is The Problem with Forever.
We Were Liars and we were Flawed.
Stepping near The Edge of Never,
It was The Symptoms of Being Human.
Unknowingly, our love was Skin Deep,
Hopelessly searching for Where Rainbows End.
And, for once, in my Half Lost life,
I chose Me Before You.
If I Stay for Just One Night,
We'd never be More Than This.
So I Don't Look Back- can't,
I'm sorry but This Is What Goodbye Looks Like.

-Chloe Harris
