There is no line between genius and insanity, I erased it.

Violence isn't the answer, it's the solution.

I hear the whisper,
wind blowing soflty,
in my ear.
It grows louder, wider.
Like a light tearing a hole
in my heart.
I hear the Lark,
the song it sings,
fills my soul.
Bursting it open
To a whole new world,
of grief, of pain.
I could not stay secluded,
My own world wouldn't stay,
in its,
own little corner of the Universe.
A black hole
had to come.
I had to hear
the Lark's Song.

Don't underestimate what lies ahead, if what lies ahead is something worth fighting for.

Love it! Very thought-provoking, very well done. I just have one little bit of critisicm: The line "My own world wouldn't stay,

in it's"



Seems kind of choppy. I think it would flow better if you evened out the lines to about the same lenght, or combined them into one. But otherwise, very good!

"Books are a uniquely portable magic." - Stephen King

I love books, and I love technology, but I don't want to see the latter overwhelm the former. I just think books are meant to be pages you turn, not screens you scroll through.

Does the Lark's song represent something big, like a catastrophic event that changes the narrator's life? It really makes me wonder about that.


I thought it was a really great poem! You used some similes and other good writing techniques that really made it good!


Keep it up! :)
