"You can do anything as long as you don't give up!"

A silent breeze,
Rustles the leaves.
A hollow echo,
In a lonely place.

The trees have grown,
Dark and shifty with age.
Dark shadows dance,
A ritual to appease.

A dream plays in my head,
Shatters and comes back again.
Bound by chains,
The wind makes them cackle.

Awakened again,
Alone in an unknown.
Crystals slid down cheeks,
I promised I wouldn’t cry.

A dash,
To anywhere but here.
Things become blurry,
Shadows race ahead.

A memory resonates,
A scar in my heart.
The blurs turn to glass and crack,
Just as a shattered heart.

The author's comments:
A poem I wrote. It was supposed to be just about a bad memory but one of my friends who read it asked if the speaker was a rape victim or something like that. I didn't realize the poem gave that impression. So does it?

The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.

hmmmm... I don't really understand what's going on in the poem. Some of the imagery is great, but it doesn't really tell a story. As a reader, I would be more interested to know what memory you are thinking about... not sure if anyone else is with me on that. but really good imagery.

This is good, but it doesnt give the impression or the picture of a rape victim. More like a person that has maybe been abused or has lost someone close to them, or I'll even go as far as saying that they have lost themselves in the world. Good!
