"What's right is what's left if you do everything else wrong." Robin Williams


A tear drops. To others though, as they look upon my face, all they see is a smile and hear a laugh. Though on the inside, a river runs free. Pain envelopes the heart and I feel myself drown once more as I keep composed to all others. Tidal waves rush over me, continuously dragging me under. But like always, I pull free, moments before life escapes my body. I know I must pull through. There is too much left to live for. So many chances I still have to take. So many people that care about me. Well… at least I believe them when they say they do. But even if they don’t, I still care for them. I know that if I’m gone I cannot express that, and possibly, I could hurt them. So as the tears roll and the waves sweep over me again, I know deep down that I must fight on. I drag myself out of the torrent and onto shore, finally escaping its grasp. As on the inside I fight for breath, I go through the motions of the day on the outside, a pin-prick away from being dragged back into the depths of my soul. I keep a straight face for those around me as not to worry them, but this stable foundation they see is rotting from the inside. But as I lay on the shore of my heart, I think of all that I have and what I still fight for. I truly smile for a moment. But just as quickly as it comes, it wavers. Fore I see a tsunami on the horizon. I know I’ll have to fight once more and I have already accepted this. But a hand in mine would calm the uncertainty I feel. So I hold mine out to all that are there. Hopefully one will take it… before it’s too late.

Very well done! THis is a different format from what it common, but I believe it fits your work nicely. I like how you showed both sides of emotion in it.

Thank you for the comment and the positive feedback. and no I don't think we have haha. Nice to meet you too. :) And yea I have gotten that before with my poetry lol. I use this set up mostly because it allows me to flow ideas together and lets it mesh into an image instead of being singled out one line at a time. Plus it helps me be a little more original with my work haha.

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

Hey there! I don't think I have seen you on the site before, so it's nice to meet you! I think you did an excellent job with all of the emotion in here, it's just raw and very real. The set-up of this poem, and all of your others, is much different from any poem I have read. Actually, when I first clicked it I checked to make sure it was in the poetry category, haha. But, anyways, this was a bitter-sweet poem, I think you did well including a few bits of happiness as it kind of balanced things out. I think this is well written.
