" a shattered world is only an opening into a new beginning with laughs, smiles, and love all around enter the world of the light and away from the broken darkness"


I am fallen,
Out of the grace I have deserted,
But that is not why I am who I am
I am fallen not from depression that succumbs me sometimes, Or by the madness of me and this world that twirls and dances within my head shouting for rapture an a way to escape,
I am fallen because I am me,
I am fallen because of my fears of others and only them,
My fears of being anything less than I am meant to be for my love ones,
My fears of not being able to sacrifice myself in order for them to live in this mad world where the strong survive the weak hide,
The fears of becoming nothing and fighting this war alone as it always seems to be,
But this is not all that is to be told of this fallen,
For with my broken wings I learn to fly again,
And with these golden beams I guide my way back from these fears and face the other side of the coin I must bear,
For what if I am a fallen, I am also a Luna, the moon and the stars
I am the happiness of a billowing field and the warmth of the flame sent to protect you,
I am the shy girl that no one notices, But soon I will earn my wings and fly back to where I am to be until then I'm just plain me,
So this poem may me nameless but the words that flow off here have names of them own,
They are called by my many names,

I love the reference to your name. Very emotional and heart-wrenching.

This poem is so beautifully written. Showing not only the importance and simplicity of the fears, but the over coming and depth of them. It's great.

This is very well written, and I love the story it tells. I rated five stars.

The more control you have over yourself, the less control others have over you.

Hey there! I enjoy the title, though 'nameless' it has a name. How interesting. It really catches the reader's eye, if not other's, it for sure caught mine. (Ha! A mini-poem.) Anyways, this was much different from most poems I have read. It was like a story, but not in story form. I enjoyed the set-up for what it was. I like how this is about you and the mysterys of yourself. I thought it was even more personal when you included your name. And I enjoyed the repetition of your username. This was a very unique poem. Good job! Would you mind reading my poem, 'The Dance of the Souls', please? Thanks:)
