"Some things will never change"---Tupac

She saw the lightning
Cutting the sky like a knife
Piercing lonely hearts

She saw the model
Intrigued by her grace and looks
Envy in her eyes

She felt the sorrow
Marooned, without an escape
Trapped, in love and hate

She felt the horror
Paranormal acts
Lights flickering on and off

She heard the wailing
Of all the people who lived
Wading toward her

She heard the music
Melody forming at heart
Dancing with passion

She heard the voices
Screaming with joy and encore
She felt the music

In her feet, she twirled
Taking a bow and curtsy
She felt the music

A room without a book is like a body without a soul.

This is a beautiful poem. Its one of my fave ones, and I'd be surprised if any girl out there disliked it.

Please look at my poetry and short stories. It would mean a lot if you did.

Hey I wanted to thank you for all the comments you left on my pieces! I really am so grateful when people here take the time to not only read my work but give feedback on it.

Your poem is really lovely about a girls reflection on the world around her and her mind and body's reaction to it. Keep writing!
