You are the solid ground
I stand on.
You are the rock
that holds me in place.
You are the current
that flows through my life.
You are the music
that fills me with grace.

You are the fear
that floods my mind.
You are the joy
that fills my day.
You are the sadness
I try to avoid.
You are the anger
that sweeps me away.

You are the boy
over there in the hallway.
You are the boy
who holds back the night.
You are the boy
who'll love me forever.
You are the boy
who is my light.

The author's comments:
Lately, my friend and I have been bouncing ideas off of each other with poetry. One day, I came up with this one. It's probably my favorite.

This poem describes how I feel sometimes, but it's not all about a boy. It could be about anyone, especially in the first two stanzas.

I just hope that people will enjoy it.:)
