Storming Heart This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

June 6, 2009
Midnight darkness, swallow me whole,
Cold winter air seeping into my soul,
Splotches of rain, cover my face,
Hiding the tears you'll soon erase.
I keep spinning in the thunderstorm,
Waiting for this heart to re-form,
Never wanting to hear your lies,
Standing in the lightning to cover up my cries.
I slowly stop my world from spinning,
My one wish: go back to the beginning,
As I turn and begin to walk away,
Never you shall my heart betray.
The thunder quiets, the lightning fades,
But the rain continuously cascades,
In my heart, I know it be true,
The pain you have caused will go away too.

So many memories, so little time.

This poem is a (typical) rhyming poem, but you have created it in such a way that it doesn't sound babyish or - frumpy. I admire it - make sure to get out all of your major feelings and memories written down. A poem, a description, a short story it doesn't matter - just as long as it is as great as it can be.
