On The Rooftop.

On The Rooftop.

A Poem by A Risen Heroine.



Been standing on the rooftop multiple times

Took a jump once or twice

Ready to leave it all behind

Nothing really mattered

Dark shadows shoving their c***s down my throat

Waiting; for me to swallow their sweet juices.



I can’t lay my head down

Living on a trail of lies

Lies I never knew would destroy me

Just another girl to destroy

Nothing more than a good f**k.


Left with no choice

Never been loved

Never really cared

Never been appreciated

Never really gave a damn.


Wanted to dance on your grave for so long

Never really had the chance

Living Deaths scream

Ripping my heart out

Scarred my scars open



Yet I will get out alive

I will rise above the rail of lies

I won’t bend over; I won’t take it all in

Never willing to swallow your sweet juices

Never willing to give in to you

I will never take the jump off of the rooftop.

A powerful poem. The emotion were strong and the accepting of the goodbye is in the words of the poem.
"Wanted to dance on your grave for so long
Never really had the chance
Living Deaths scream
Ripping my heart out
Scarred my scars open
Screaming; “YOU WON’T GET OUT ALIVE!”"
Thank you for the excellent poem.

I like how you brought it back to the beginning for completion but with a twist. Well done.

This is very despairingly artistic....there's so much to be admired in this piece.

I can definitely see some growth in your writing....you have matured splendidly over such a short time.

This was emotive, heartfelt and it managed to maintain a good flow to it (and it wasn't forced it just felt natural)...

I commend you my friend :)

Quite brutal to begin with, but with a fierce anger and passion to rise above the owrst that life can throw at you in the end. Great writing!

This has a place in my heart. The pain is so rich and it's almost intoxicating when you add the fear and worry.

Sweet determination against the threats of non-believing. A wonderful response to life's observations but fearful of involvement.
