"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


Underneath
these dripping worn out lies
is a girl with tear stained blue-green eyes.
She doesn’t speak anymore
Tired of crying
at the door.

What I love about this poem, is that it can be taken in so many different directions; it can be related to so many different emotions and feelings. I especially loved the line "a girl with tear stained blue-green eyes," the imagery was beautiful and it evokes so much emotion in the reader. Phenomenal work!!!
