To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.


these glass bones

can easily feel,
the cold fingers
grasping
the smoothness
of my ice bones;
my heart frozen.

 

my ache
inside me
a part of me,
inside my bones;
this soreness
i'm used too.

 

my heart
a frozen butterfly,
the wings tied;
this is
a broken butterfly,
that you see.

 

but
even though,
this winged
creature
might be trapped
in my
ice skeleton,
in this frozen land

 

this butterfly
can't help,
but fly
even if on
broken wings;
and though she might
never touch they sky;
she was meant to fly,
for she has wings.

 

and though
maybe fragile,
she's still strong;
fly with me.
for there's no
gravity.

I was inspired by a writer here on Teen Ink, WynterPage95. I was inspired by that person and their book that the person had written: http://www.teenink.com/novels/romance/book/97170/Broken-Butterflies/ . A romance story, which I hope the writer, Wynter continues. Hope ya'll like it and enjoy it. As I wrote this I wrote this from my inspirations, but also from my experiences, thoughts and feelings. Thank you, ya'll.

"These glass bones..." I love that line. Immediately grabs the reader's attention. "And though she might never touch the sky, she was meant to fly, for she has wings." A wonderful description of determination, despite the odds. "Fly with me.  For there's no gravity." Perfect close to the poem. And, quite frankly, I can probably quote this whole poem and tell you what I like about each line haha XD Great job with this, please keep it up ^.^
