“Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.” -Kurt Vonnegut

A syringe
Anesthesia pumping
in. I'm
bare; not moving
It's holding me down
shutting me down
the icicles
start to form
as time starts to form
at its stand-still
trying to open my
eyes but
i'm so numb, so
it flows through
my body
spreading across
my face
these vast lies
keep holding me down
a soft dark mumble
turns to a cry
turns to a scream
but yet it is all
locked down
as i lie

This is an interesting poem, but it doesn't really hold my attention. Maybe because I haven't read any of Ellen Hopkins' books - which I will, they sound good.

Please check out my work!
