Am I but your sun-

drops of boiling sand and ashes

radiant and reminiscent of

an explosion..

I drip from breaking existances

and I've bounced to the

darkest

of your nights-

(do you realise

you don't have to revolve

around me, anymore?)

 

So do not stretch your fingertips

you can not block my rays today,

do not shine those chains on me

you can not clip my wings today,

Your eclipse is finally over, dear,

Run, I'm letting you flee today

Go, I'm setting you free today.

Thanks! I have never really been bullied either, haha. I read your whole comment four times probably too, it fees really good to get such detailed feedback.

Hi. You are not terrible at writing. I command you to take that off your profile. xD Kidding. To be honest, I had to read the first stanza about four times to let it soak in. I really love the parentheses at the end of it. Every time an author does that, I feel like I'm getting, like, an inside scoop on who you are. I feel like that's an important connection to establish with your reader, and it definitely made the last stanza really click with me personally. Additionally, a lot of my own poems deal with bullying (although ironically nobody ever bullies me because I'm too scary xD) so this was a nice change. Nice job! :D
