A red fence
An old trampoline
Pop- Tarts and
Faceless boys
How could I forget?
But I did
I forgot you
For so long
You were gone
And I went with you
Why did I follow?
You showed me how to live
How to pick frosting
Off of Pop- Tarts
"That's the only good part"
You would say, and throw the rest
To your dog
And then it happened
What happened?
Fire
Smoke
Burning
Breaking
Why did you go?
I miss the old days
The days
When you taught me things
I could never learn alone
You were neon
Psychedelic
But I don't remember you
Just faceless boys
Pop- Tarts
An old trampoline
And
A red fence


The author's comments:
When I was a little girl, my best friend was an older boy who lived next door. He taught me how to be myself. I can't remember anything about him, but he inspired me in so many ways. If he is reading this, just know you're still my best friend.

Thanks! I enjoy writing about personal experiances. You can really inject raw emotion into them.

This is a recent topic for me. I think I had mild amnesia or something... I forgot him until late last school year.

Aww! Again ,good job with using the free verse style, and nice rythm. Also the nouns and verbs helped add to it, it like "burning, and breaking."

I think it's really good, it flows well, and you can feel the emotion in it.
