Write. It doesn't matter if you're overjoyed, furious, miserable, or what. Write to keep those emotions in check while managing to grow stronger.


Your arms around me,
Your lips against mine.
I hold you close
And don't let go.
I smile and you kiss me again.
I never want this moment to end.
My eyes are closed as I refuse to leave this behind.
Then, I'm forced to open my eyes.
And realize that I'm holding air,
Not you.
I realize I'm not kissing you,
That I'm not kissing anyone.
I cry as I realize the truth:
I'm here alone.
I'm here without you.

Yeah, I will admit: poems are definitely not my forte. Which is ironic seeing as most of the things I've posted on TI are poems.

"Books are a uniquely portable magic." - Stephen King

I love books, and I love technology, but I don't want to see the latter overwhelm the former. I just think books are meant to be pages you turn, not screens you scroll through.

This is a good poem; I like it! I think the only way you could make it better is by being more descriptive and using higher vocabulary.

 

Good job! :)
