"Sanctuary"- Paradise Fears


the wind in my eyes
and the sun in my face
and i feel in love today
with whom, i'm not entirely sure
why do i have to know, anyway?

if i can sit and feel this way
forever and ever and always
then maybe i will be myself
when the tide rolls in
and calls me

i'll run out to the salty waves
and wave goodbye to all i know
i don't think i'll come back
ever



...i'm letting go

"According to some, heroic deaths are admirable things. (Generally those who don't have to do it. Politicians and writers spring to mind.) I've never been convinced by this argument, mainly because, no matter how cool, stylish, composed, unflappable, manly, or defiant you are, at the end of the day you're also dead. Which is a little too permanent for my liking." — Jonathan Stroud (Ptolemy's Gate)

Added this one to my favorites. :) I love that the words feel the same as they read... you know what I mean? I especially love the lack of formatting here, it really adds to the effect. Flawless job, my friend.

Okay, that makes sense!  But the 'I's are really distracting to a Grammar Na.zi like me. ;)

Everything is lowercase purposely :) But thanks, anyway! (Usually I'm obsessive about spelling/grammar, but I was showing my defiance with this one...haha. If that makes sense).

Nice! But you should really capitalize your 'I's.  Your flow is good and your poem is nice and light rather than the usual depressed stuff here on Teen Ink.  Good job!

I really liked it. It reminded me of just sitting on the beach and feeling happy and in love, just forgetting the rest of the world and letting go of everything

Thank you!

I sort of give mixed messages with this one...but, oh well! I only posted it simply because I thought it was sort of pretty.

...one word from you will silence me forever. If, however, your feelings have changed, I will have to tell you: you have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love....I love...I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on. -Mr. Darcy

I really really enjoy this poem! You are a wonderful poet - the vibe I get from it is very relaxed but almost defiant. I love it!

Everything is purposely lower case :)

But thank you, all the same!

I like this.

And, oh, when you used I, make sure it's in capital.. :) That's all because your poem is too good... :)

I'm letting go... :) love it

I know, I can't spell. But I like your poem! I just... Hmmmmmm.... I'm just not so sure about the last line. I mean, I like it, but it is sort of.... Well, sort of.... Hmmmm... What's the word I'm looking for? Not childish, persay, but sort of typical, if you know what I mean. I don't quite understand the poem as a whole, but that is good. Do NOT change that.
