"Paper is more patient than people." –Anne Frank

Brackish rivulets
Wander my cheeks, taunting–too
Shallow to drown in.

The author's comments:
I am not suicidal myself, but I once was. If you are suicidal, know that someone is here for you (me). If you need someone to talk to, ask for my contact info in the Poetry chat room. With love, 411Ellie

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

I cannot say more right now but in a hurry ALL I CAN SAY IS: WOW WOW WOW
