"Life is a complicated journey. It's like you're on a roller coaster and you have a blind fold on so that you can't see the twists and turns that are up ahead."

The look of innocence was on her face,
Knowing not of the reality
Yet to come.
Seh glanced around,
The faces glaring back.
They all knew her name,
But not who she really was.
She had a tattoo
In the middle of her back,
Of a tenor sax,
With a finish of dark purple,
The color of a bruise,
Surrounded by black, wilted music notes
In a cloud of smoke.

She was a true poet,
Writing 'bout a life
Opposite her own.
Of rainbows and ponies,
And falling in love.

No one took the time to know her,
No one looked at her
With concern or care.
But they all lost that chance,
One dark April day.
The day she lost her life.

The author's comments:
This is one of my favorite poems that I have written. I describes me, in a way that is quite abstract, for the girl I wrote about is nearly opposite of myself, and what she would write about is what my life is.
