"The town was paper, but the memories were not." - John Green. (Paper Towns)


what we are
what we say
what we mean

the car
freeway
people in the scene

opposite directions
different speeds
two hearts
wrong lead

clouds cover
smiles erupt
time stops
all is still

what we are
what we say
what we mean

rays arise
shades open
eliminate what lies
the old despise

the before
stress and more
the after
only laughter

what we are
what we say
what we mean

attempted valiance
hopeful tears
lead to only
open fears

grief accompanies
the people the person
fear leaves fall
always lurking

what we are
what we say
what we mean

lastly the after
pure and shady
wanted to exit
without the maybe

what we are
what we say
what we mean
they lie on the scene

The author's comments:
Well, I would like any feedback possible. This was basically the first poem I ever put any thought in. It's related to one of my friends' mother's car crash and a former student at my school's suicide.
