Short dresses

pretty faces

hidden fractures

at awkward places.

 

Bubble hearts

break apart

the slightest touch

is poisoned dart.

 

Fears tower
words empower
and saltwater
runs like showers.

 

And here we burn

as tables turn

the myth of learning..

we come, to mourn.

Thanks, I had not really expected such compliments for this particular poem, so it really means a lot. @SaphiraBrightscales @Amai-kun

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

OHMYGOODNESS This is possibly the best short-sentenced-rhyming poem (as in poem of its kind) that I have read on here. It has left me completely at a loss for words! Although it is extremely (extremely!) hard to pick, I'd say the second stanza is my most favourite. I WANT TO READ MORE POETRY. You post little :'(

I usually don't like the rhymed poems I see here on Teen Ink because a lot of them are amateur and awkwardly rhymed, but this absolutely blew me away. It's like all of the words just shape themselves in your thoughts. Your poetry seems almost effortless. *fanboys*

This is incredible. I love reading something and seeing words put together in a way I have never imagined. Just reading the first stanza, I was like wow, I need to read the rest of this!
