Writing is a form of therapy; sometimes I wonder how all those who do not write, compose or paint can manage to escape the madness, melancholia, the panic and fear which is inherent in a human situation. -Graham Green


That you're so desperate to crawl out of,

Reminds me of that sweet honey you love so much.

It makes me think of sunlit sand, and most times

I wonder 

How a simple pigment can create such a universe

Of a person.


The author's comments:

I had this friend, and her skin was a beautiful golden brown color and she was a stunning girl in general, inside and out. She would always talk about how she wanted to have a lighter skin color and no matter how often I tried to convince her that she was beautiful she never believed me. I love her very much, and she is the most amazing person I have ever met, so I wrote her a poem in hopes that she would see that. (The honey part is because she loved these weird little honey stick candy things)

I think this is a gorgeous poem; I love the overall structure, the shortness and sweetness to it, as well as the pure honesty of it. Great job and keep writing! :)
