I sit here on the floor wishing,
my nails clink against the hard floor,
I’m fighting my good and bad side,
the devilish side of me says “take a peek,”
“they’ll never know,”
Another voice screams at me,
“they will find out,
a peek will hurt,
you’ll regret it,
you only have to wait a few more years!”
The golden sun gleams at the spine,
Its silver letters shine,
I whisper its name several times,
I reach to the cabinet,
the only thing that separates me is glass,
But no!
The book is forbidden,
dust sprinkles the spine,
I’m curious to know what its pages conceal,
I thought about reading just a chapter,
I leap up and dash out of the room,
I didn’t even take a longing glance.

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

You're Welcome!!

I like this. I love your word choice, especially with the sprinkled dust and the devilish side. It pulled me into the poem like few poems can. :)

it's super mysterious and suspenseful, you can feel your fingers itching to raise the cover, take a peek, just a little peek...

Sometimes, that girl who seems so strong, who never lets what people say bother her, who smiles and laughs with her friends all the time, is really the girl who, deep down, is falling to pieces.

Thank you so much for the feedback.  I wrote this when I wasn't allowed to read the last book to the Twilight series.  And I really hate it when I cant finish a series until a couple of years.  Thank you for reading!!!! :D
