Hang me up for the world to see,

Let them watch as the blood flows free.

Down my arms, an emotionless face,

On display, the real disgrace.

Crucified for all the lies,

No tears as this body finally dies.

Here's the thing,

Death has no sting.

Life was but a planted seed,

It one day grew.

When life ends,

It begins anew.

Our souls all leave this place,

A simple step in the human race.

So please keep hope, do not cry,

Face this fact, we all have to die.


R.I.P. to my best friend

I wrote this shortly after my best friend died, something was on my mind about how it should have been me instead, I had felt like I let him down.

Omg thank you so much! <3  You probably just made my day with that comment :3 I'm so honored to be one of your favorite writers (: that is just amazing. I don't know you but I love you! xD I am glad that this was able to touch some emotion when you read it, considering the goal in poetry is to influence the readers emotions, to make them feel how you are feeling. I am sooooo honored that you love my writing, and I will be sure to submit some other stuff right now, just for you :)

Hey there! I'm back, of course, I have been waiting for new work of yours to be posted! I have a favorites folder ont he side of my computer and one of my folders is called 'favorite writers' and I only have two people in there and you are one of them. I always check from time to time and TODAY you had something up and I was so happy. I am so sorry that you lost your bestfriend, but I am very happy that you are at peace with it and know that you're guardian angle watches over you. (: So, I added this poem to my favorites because I think this is one of the most beautiful things I have read. While reading this I got very emotional. You capture emotions better than most people can ever dream to. I love the title so much. The rhymes are so soft and airy and they just flow so well. The first two lines are so deep! I mean, wow! One of my favorite lines would be, 'Life was but a planted see, It one day grew. When life ends, It begins anew.' That was priceless. Just reading it was so mind-blowing. The way you worded those lines and all the others in here make it so sad and pretty. You ended this so bitter-sweet. Bravo. You're an amazing writer. I am stunned. I will be back to read more of your work! Xoxo!

But poetry isn't nearly as sought after as it once was :S  and I'm not that great.
