Manipulative,


gentle,


hard,
black symbols against white,

swirl into a picture,

I'm lead to friendship,

then utter despair,
paradoxically tears feed a spark,
that spark births a wildfire,

I cherish that fire,

I savor that burn,

the way I burn to a crisp, the way it burns grief to insanity,

my fire is then doused,

but not completely,

a spark is still left,
hungry for the next time I hold,

my precious paper friend.

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

Hehehe :D

this is beautiful! :) This is so creative and it sounds like fiery beauty within itself. "black symbols against white----swirl into a picture" for this case, its "swirl into a majestic beauty" lol. This is wonderful
