Because No one Would Think......

October 30, 2010
I like to be in a storm and run as fast as my legs can carry me because no one would think I was running from everything that has caused pain in the past.
I like to stand next to fires and breath in the somehow fasinating smell of smoke because no one would think my face was red from the anger in my heart.
I like to sit in a tree with music playing because it feels like I am flying away from the all the names.
Most of all, I love to dance in the rain because no one can see me cry.

I like this poem, and when you asked for my opinion on if you should keep it on here, I say yes. I think your very talented, and this poem is very good and I think many people can agree with it.

This poem is really beautiful. It is short, but in that little poem, is a gigantic message. Don't listen to those people in school that may tease you, or spread rumors, because if you do, it will haunt you for quite awhile like it did to me. Don't worry, many people are in your shoes, including me. Its a wonderful feeling to know you aren't alone in this world.

I absoluetly agree with you. As far as most people at school are concerned, if you're not IN, you're nothing more than a subject of nothing for their gossip. This is a great poem that I really appriciate for that reason. I've had trouble at school for a while, things have recently greatly improved, but I still get trouble. I submitted a poem that you might like (Autumn Rain), it's not up yet, but you might like to check it out in a couple days.

Oh, wait! There's more! I know you've probably heard it a million times before, but the IN crowd sucks. I could offer you a jumble of confusing advice, but all I can say is that it really DOESN'T matter what they think. They can THINK whatever they want to, and you can't change that. But YOU can think what you want to as well.

So they think you're crazy. Who cares? Maybe you ARE crazy.

Thank you for your comment. I have been told that I have many different voices. Although, could you clarify on why you added all the twilight things? I didn't exactly understand where that fit in. :-) I looked for some of your work, but I am afraid I can't find any. Could you help me, please? Oh, I know this will sound strange, but I find it completely out of the norm that I don't know if you are male or female. If you don't want to say, that is understandable. I have other articles you might li... (more »)

Story time! While reading another person's work, the amnesia one? Yeah, I read your comment and thought "now this looks like an intelligent person who seems to have an honest streak!" So I searched for your poem here, excited to see what your writing style was like!

For starters, I really loved your comment on the other story. It was exactly how I imagine you think and talk. It was spunky and fresh and honest. However, I was surprised to find that your poems have a very different voice... (more »)
