"Love is something unconditional. It continues to live even when everything dies." - By Me ♥


She looks low
Her eyes of gray
Looking for her spark to shine
But in this moment
All walls fall in
And her place is out of line
She its rock bottom
Her ribs cave in
Breaking all that's left to see
But as her light gets brighter
Her faith gets stronger
And her stories end happily

This piece is about others who doubt me and my own motivation which overcomes the dark time, eventually leaving me in a valuable peaceful place.

This poem has a short simplistic story confined with in it's minimal structure, and it's actually executed very well. Normally, the lack of longevity leaves little in the way of story-telling and detail, but I feel as though you accomplished what you needed to in the spave you gave yourself. Well done.
