"Stay golden"
- Johnny (The Outsiders, S. E. Hinton)


The words, they are too heavy
To wield gracefully.
I am trying to be so careful
About you,
But I am falling stones.

Please, don't
Forget about me when
Your feet are steady, but your hands
Are trembling.
Don't forget about me
When your eyes are closed but you can't
Sleep alone.
Remember me
When-
Ever, really.
It couldn't hurt if you never forgot me.

If there is one word to describe life it is one

When you used the words like heavy and stones I actually felt the heaviness of the first part of the poem then to me it slowly got lighter that was a nice effect :)

Everyone is capable of looking up and wishing on a star.
So catch it, so contagious, this day-dreamer's disease,
And hope can be your sword, slaying darkness with belief."

I really enjoyed this! I thought the word choice was really good...and, I don't know, I just liked it a lot! (:

I realllly like this piece! The imagery is great! The "remember me when" reminds me of the song Don't Forget to Remember Me by Carrie Underwood !

The picture you chose for this piece matches so perfectly! Hanging on, when you know it's time to let go.

I also thought "Remember me when- ever really" was very clever (:
