"You can close your eyes from things you don't want to see, but you can't close your heart from things you don't want to feel."

Echo that her heart hid by a hallow cry
To her it’s a long road of sorrow,
She called for help and all the rest unknown,
But all that was said back was a "sorry echo."

"Echo for the situation she was in,"
Invisible, scared, and unknowingly risky,
"Passionate, ignored," as one was to expect,
Hoping for one day a caring hand.

Give love if you are given love,
Use it for only good, no evil what so ever,
Use as one is to know.
The cry out is not a song.

But it feels like she’s singing," dear echo," no one hears.
All she can do is help her,
All she can do is depend on her,
She cry’s no more.

Inspired by Daryl Hines poem "Echo."

You can say that I'm a talented writer, but all I can do is write down my feelings on paper and form them into sentences with my own personal flavor.

Love the "&quot." Something very rare but used cleverly in this piece. also, instead of "cry's," put "cries"... unless u meant to do that. Take a look at some of my work as well, expecially my book Average and You Just Don't Know Part I and Part II.

I really liked this poem! I'm glad you can draw inspiration from other poetry, it shows that you show a large interest in the field. If you have a moment, can you check out some of my work? It's much appreciated.
