"Hope sees the invisible, feels the intangible, and achieves the impossible."

Creak, squeak
The rusty gate utters
A melody that's unique
And filled with silent prayers.

Releasing squeals of joy
When someone enters,
Emitting moans of woe
As someone departs.

Rusted from continuous tears,
Almost falling apart
As love disappears,
That is the gate to my heart.

The author's comments:
This describes my heart and how with every entrance and departure it gets a little more rusted with pain. Eventually it will either fall apart or refuse to open, unless someone comes along to oil it with love.

Are you serious that this is your poem? I can't believe how AMAZING it is!!!! I love it, and you know that is exactly how my heart is. Some boy is always puncturing my heart whenever he comes and go's. You should keep writing, I know that you can be the next Stephanie Myres some day!
