I lift my lids and all is born again.
(I think I made you up inside my head)."
-Sylvia Plath


Innocence free
To blissfully fly
The blue of her wings
That melt with the sky
The green eyes of the kitten
Staring her way
That sparkle with wonder,
No more boredom today.

The wet, purple bloodstains
Where her wings are tearing,
The gray of his claws
That snatch with out caring.
Innocence gleefully
Bouncing around.
Innocence lying
Dead on the ground.

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

WOW...Your poetry is so much more deep than I first thought...that there are so many multiple meaning for every line...just wow....And You're welcome!

Thank you! Haha, this is another one of my "what the heck am I getting into" poems about dating. I was having a very confusing time XD Oh well, poetry really is a great way to get out your fear, and all the joys of life as well.

Awesome job with the rhyming scheme; you had a successful rhyme pattern and also used very powerful imagery. That's a sign of a good writer. Keep it up!!!!
