Light of laughter,
Smiles stretching from ear to ear,
Foreign hands clamped together,
Arms flying and lying behind backs,
Before the Camera lens.
Above the half-eaten cupcakes,
Ripped trend magazines,
Scribbled homework,
Phones laid on the ground with camera mode,
Blankets scattered about,
Darkness creeping from the window,
But the flashlights casting a barrier,
Between visible and invisible.
Words echo the halls,
Soon dissolve in the waters of time
But the photo will remain,
Burring into yellow and soiled.

Another unique poem for all of my friends: both in Teen Ink and in my life.

All we are is an isle of flightless birds
We find our worth in giving birth and stuff
We're lining our homes against winding roads
And we think the going is tough
We pick songs to sing, remind us of things that nobody cares about
And honestly we're probably more suicidal than ever now

If you decide to live by, what you think's wrong and what's right
Believe me you'll begin to wish you were sleeping
Your weeping will creep in your head and you'll cry
But if we wake up every morning and decide what we believe
We can take apart our very heart and the light will set us free

You have some talent for yourself. You are a great writer.

@Angel04 It takes time you know, the poems you write, the better you become in your writing.
