Brackish rivulets
Wander my cheeks, taunting–too
Shallow to drown in


The author's comments:
*brackish=salty
rivulets=small streams

A girl cries, wanting only to die. Her tears tease her–they are too shallow to drown in.

I am not suicidal myself, but I once was. If you are suicidal, know that someone is here for you (me).

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

And this poem is wonderfully amazing and I cannot stop admiring it and the intent behind it is just so admirable I cannot even begin to describe that. I am your number one fan. ^.^

LEXYYY I AM JUST POSTING THIS HERE because I know I've been gone. Just plain gone for ages now and I just, I MISS YOU. SO MUCH. It is like I had this amazing friend in you and all of you people and I haven't been able to reach out and it sucks and I just had to come back at least once and say this, that I miss you and I hope that you still remember me. Before I go and leave TeenInk. And well, here's an address: dua.jas (attherateof) hotmail
