Angel In The Tree

There he sits in a tree so high.
His hair blown back, it is the color of the autumn sky

His foot dangles below the branch
of the tree on his father's ranch

The leaves fly around him in a tight funnel
It looks like he's in a light filled tunnel

The silent tears that fall on his book
Make it hard for me to look.

The tears come fast, like pouring rain.
You can see from the look on his face that he's in pain.

His tears were forming a river
his body began to quiver.

Crash! he fell from the tree.
All i could do was fall to my knees.

I ran to his aid
All he said was let me fade.

My teacher Ms.Evans gave us an assignment, which involved us writing an imagery poem. And this was the image that came to my mind.

Favorite Quote:
1. Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.
2. You wear a mask for so long, you forget who you were beneath it.
3. You see, madness, as you know, is like gravity, all it takes is a little push.

This is fantastic. It really captures an emotion I struggle to put words to most of the time. Keep it up!

This is so beautiful it's beyond words. It's from the way you wrote the last line to the way each stanza is two lines, I absolutely love this poem.
