one must still have chaos within oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star
- Friedrich Nietzsche

'and i remember the truth
long novembers with you'
and as i hate the reflection,the eyes never blink
the harder they think, the sparkle dwindles and shrinks,
how do they take color or how they take lie
if they flash lighter as she starts to cry
widen, betrayed, if they'd smile again
how they'd react to a laugh, respond to a friend
they move down, red rimmed, to the shape of her lips
scarred by skin they touched, turned down by how they miss
they look back up, the image blurs, mind ablaze
that they can't meet their image, can't stare down its own gaze.
turning around and walking away would only leave me empty.
so i punch her, feel the glass rip my skin,
let the anger sweep over, as powerful as lust for a sin.

The author's comments:
So to pay my respects and also practice my on writing, be inspired, I take one/two lines from a song I worship at the moment and continue it by myself,however far it may take me. In this one, the first two lines are from Winter by Joshua Radin. I don't really know why I wrote the rest of it that way, I just did.

I am speechless. This was beyond amazing. You have such an amazing gift, and you should be very proud of this piece. Your style is very similar to that of Robert Frost, and he is, in my opinion, one of the greatest poets ever. Well done, and I applaud you for such a marvelous work. 

I would really appreciate it if you could check out some of my work, if you ever get the chance.

It seems to me to be a very passionate poem; I applaud you for that. It was well written, and I adored the last bit of the poem. Keep writing! :)
