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.


Hear the heart[break]
and soon
the heart[ache]
will settle
in the dusk of noon[afternoon].


My blood glows[shines]
like the sun
that falls down,
along with my broken[shattered]
heart on the ground.


You blow me away[gone]
on the wind,
like I'm made
of feathers,
and I don't matter.
You threw me
like I was a doll,
at the corner[edge]
of the room
because my face
was unfamiliar
and I'm
smudged with tears on me;
my lifeless, face always smiling at you.


You played[toyed]
with my heart
like I was a toy,
that you were amused in,
but soon lost interest
and put me under your bed;
forgetting me.


I'm just a ballerina[dancer]
who's trapped,
behind glass walls[barriers];
who keeps on dancing[moving],
despite the strength
she's losing
in her legs
and the pain
in her feet.


Or I'm just the moth
who flies at night
or the "pathetic" butterfly
that soars,
garbed in grey
and clothed in black
and streaked with mud,
from last night's rain.


The author's comments:

I was inspired by a few writers on Teen Ink, by my thoughts, by my past and by God to write this. A lot of these could be seperate poems, that I'll be working on; but I wanted to share it with ya'll. 

 

Thank you for taking time to read it. :)

Aw, haha. That made me feel better and smile. I'll probably be smiling because I'll be remembering your words and will always remember your words. Oh, Liv. I don't think I deserve a friend like you, but somehow you're my friend and I am honored and thankful and glad that you're my friend. Thank you, so much. Just so, so much. Thank you. :)

"To these the past hath its phantoms,
More real than solid earth;
And to these death does not mean decay,
But only another birth"
- Isabella Banks

Such beauty, such imagery... so Emily. I cannot help but think of you as a queen of words, the person that finds beauty in the very stream of desert air. You will go places, I promise, I really do :)

There is no sinner like a young saint; Is all that we see or seem but a dream within a dream-Edgar Allen Poe; Out of the deep depths of misfortune comes bliss; The only way to cope with change is to place youself into the change.

After reading several of your pieces, I have concluded that you are a very talented writer. You have the best going for you and youre also very inspiration with your work. Please keep writing more.
