"I read Twilight once. On accident."


When the dust settles
And anxiety
Dissipates once more
I close my tired eyes,



Let go.
All motion is stopped,
All dispute is gone
My heart's hammering
Comes close to a stop,



And then
Peacefulness invades
A smile spreads slowly,
Erases all signs
Of stress, of angst, of



My fears
When the dust settles,
I take a step back
And see destruction;
All my boundaries



Are gone.

Obstacles are things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.

-very well written

-good emotion

perhaps more descriptive language

perhaps even more expressive language though language was expressive

perhaps more exprssive adjectives or metaphors to more effectively communicate the emotion of this piece

great job keep up the great work

Thanks! I kind of wanted it to end on an uplifting note, though... was that not prominent enough?

I love the imagery especially with the spacing. It makes the whole piece come together and really feel emotional and fragmented and painful.
