Writers Lament This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

My thoughts are an ocean

That I simply cannot fathom

In to words

Sand between my fingers

Sun in my eyes

Rising

Rising


Then gone with the tide

No matter how hard I try

To express

All these pent up emotions


I end up building sandcastles

That crumple

Never a Michelangelo masterpiece

That withstands the test of time

 

A notebook gathering dust

A swirl of emotions gone in an instant
And not a single idea to show for it.

The first line bears a stark similarity to a quote from "The Fault in our Stars" by John Green: "My thoughts are stars I can't fathom into constellations." I don't know if you've read it or not, but your poem is lovely. Keep writing!
