Thank you so much for commenting. I feel terrible replying months after. I'm happy you liked this piece. When I first wrote it, I doubted it, as all writers, I think, doubt their offspring. Nonetheless, thanks!

I greatly enjoyed the trickle of thought shown here. The way the words and ideas flow gently from one part to another... Please continue writing.

I love the simplicity of this. it calls for a defined representation of thought, that things are concrete, rather than abstract. I love your technique used while writing this piece, the small lines add an emphasis to the motif.

Thank you. I never honest to God thought this poem would receive so much love. I was almost disappointed with myself for writing it. But I guess I might've been wrong. Thank you, Kris for all the love you given me throughtout the day. You're amazing. Thank you for showing so much support. It means the world.

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

Oh You're welcome.... :))))

This a big idea that you told in simple words. That's a gift to be able to say so much with so little.
