When does it begin?"

Can you fix something in the midst
Of It's breaking?
Or must you wait
For complete desecration of the Soul,
Before you begin a Resurrection of
The broken and Tender spirit?

Can restoration of the weak begin
Now, as they fall apart? Or must
Every piece be torn away and every
Hope be dashed or fade?
Like a Flower it dies slowly till there's
Nothing left. A lifeless form lying
Still, and alone, and frail.

Full of emotion! i LOVE that! You have worked your way into my heart as a writer. :)

It's really great, and i can tell that this wasn't a fake "oh i'll write this to seem dark or cool" kind of thing, it's genuien (idk if thts right llol) and that's what makes it great. :)

Thanks so much! I really appreciate your support. Hopefully a few of my other poems will be posted soon, they take FOREVER to post stuff.

P.S thanks also for your great perception. I don't write unless I can let myself slip into an emotion.

I said it once I'll say it again. almost all my poems are in a bit of a jumble due to idk I had them in the correct formate and when I submitted them they got messed up!
