"Don't punish yourself," she heard her say again, but there would be punishment and pain, and there would be happiness too. That was writing."
--Markus Zusak, "The Book Thief"


Silently fall the tears.
Though silent,
encompasses all her fears.
All her fears
fall down her face,
Knows she takes up too much space.
In the little white room,
gives herself a hug
and is led to her doom.
Hooked up to wires,
tells herself to be strong.
she knows strength requires
that she admits she’s done wrong.
Silently fall the fears.
Though silent,
encompasses all her tears.

I like your play on words between tears and fears. It makes me think of all the ways they are the same. Crying seems so vulnerable to us perhaps because it exposes the very fact that we do have fears. This poem is a fascinating glimpse into a unique personal situation through the commonly relatable experience of tears.

I'm pleasantly surprised! And why don't you have a piece in the magazine? I don't see why this isn't published! It has a very clever rythm, and the rhymes are fresh! Very original!

The best things in life are unseen, that's why you close your eyes when you kiss, cry, or dream.
What doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger.

I really love this, it gives me a different meaning than it might to other people but it's so real. Great job!

If that's your interpretation of it. (Sorry to sound like an English teacher. I know what I'm describing, but what you think I'm describing is what you think and I'm not going to tell you what to think.)

Am I right in saying that you are describing a person on death row headed to the electric chair?

Ooh! i loved the flow of this. I found it sad, but it was very honest. I loved the feeling you put into this, and am going to go look at the rest of your work.

I liked how you related the ending back to the beginning, it made the poem actually sound like it was over, and the reader was left very satisfied.  Pretty sad, but very forefilling and honest.  I also liked your metaohor and your vocabulary.  Nice job, 5 stars :)
