"You know you’re a writer if your friend tells you a heartbreaking story and your first reaction is – wow, that would make an incredible plot for a novel. You know you’re a smart writer if you manage to keep that reaction to yourself."

I wonder as I wander
In the dark streets late at night
Do you miss me or forget me
When I am out of sight?

And I’m thinking as I’m sinking
Into my saddest thoughts
That maybe now I’m changing
And what we had is lost.

I’m falling as I’m calling
You’re silent telephone
But always you don’t answer
And always I’m alone

So I’m talking as I’m walking
To your voicemails lonely heart
“Could you call me? I’m so lonely.
Please don’t let me fall apart.”

And I’m swaying as I’m saying
“These days my life’s been tough
And I would love to speak to you
But is my love alone enough?”

Now I’m weeping while I’m sleeping
I’m not who I was before
And I wonder if this attitude
Will send you out the door.

I keep crying, keep on trying
To maintain the girl you see
But I can’t be what you expect
That girl was never me

Hey there:]
Thanks for checking out my work, it really means a lot.
This one's about how I'm being something I'm not for all; the people in my world. A fake maybe, and it's quite a waste of my energy. But it makes me sad that I WILL lose people I love if they know how I really am.

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

This is too AMAZING! I love the last line <3 <3   The rythym was just perfect.

Love this! Need to work on punctuation a little, but the message and rhythm are great!
