even after all these years the sun has never said to the earth, you owe me... look at what a love like that can do, it can light up the sky


Heavy and hard to hold,
Your eyelids over your eyes,
They’re begging for the sweet relief
That only sleep can bring.
But you’re afraid, so you hold them up;
Just like your head
So high,
And you face another sleepless night,
As you try to convince yourself
That monsters only exist in your nightmares,
Though they never cease.

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, but learning to dance in the rain.

i love the first two lines! i also love how it kind of rhymes even though you didn't try to. for example high and night. Somehow, you've made this poem flow really really well. Great job!
