"Be careful what you set your heart upon - for it will surely be yours.'
James A. Baldwin


Whoosh It goes
Like my heart when I see his eyes
Like an asteroid falling through the sky

Smash It goes
Like a spoon against glass
Like the quiet after she passed

Crash It goes
Like a jump in my soul
Like diving into Alice's hole

Quiet as death
Beautiful as her heart
How I miss her
How I wish I could depart
Deep
Ever so deep
Into the ocean...

I wrote this in honor of my little sister. I missed her so much at the time I didn't know how to put it into words. This poem was inspired by the song Into the Ocean by Blue October.

Again, I agree with IamtheshyStargirl. This was gorgeous, and the imagery was so vivid.

Gorgeously bittersweet and young feeling.
