A Poem by Elizabeth Fiske

A poem about a true friend who has been through so much pain...

Her name is Kristina.



I remember seeing her for the first time.




I remember this feeling, 
A burning inside,
That told me to meet her,
To be by her side.
That told me her heart
Was more broken than mine.
That her story wasn't over
Unless I don't try.


Soon she opened up,
Told me her dark past
Of screams and broken glass,
The scrape of her grandmother's ring
Against her face,
Of her hopes and dreams,
Riped apart,
By hateful fate.

Before I met her
I never knew 
What it truly meant
To step into another's shoe.
To walk in their skin
A million miles,
To know others hide pain
Behind precious smiles.

It seems almost a movie;
She's insecure
But hides angelic talent.
She never ignores me too;
She listens to me more
Than my family,
Than my "friends" do.


I know she deserves better than this:
Abuse, 
Neglect, 
Expectations that can never be met.
She makes me wonder
If my tears have been wasted,
If I've surrendered, 
To obsolete woes,
To childish worries. 

It seems like we're all in a hurry
To cry our own pains away
While others are dying 
In a bloodier, grayer fate.

I know she's stronger than me.
How's she never taken to the blade
Really surprised me,
Amazingly. 


I guess it's safe to say
That there's still hope for the hopeless
Even in our darkest days
All because of that girl,
Hiding away her pain,
Singing to death in the rain,
Trying to find someone
Who will want her...

A broken little ballerina...

Kristina

Author's Note

Elizabeth Fiske
This poem is about a true friend in my life. She's amazingly talented, yet horribly insecure. She's been through so much pain and suffering in her life, but everyday I find smiles on her face. She's the only one in the world who I consider a best/true friend. She's a wonderful person who doesn't deserve to be haunted by her past or mistreated by others. Everyday I think to myself, "She's a person everyone should have in their life."

Oooo...how do you get your pictures like that on here for in your poems? So pretty. This poem, btw, when I first encountered it on Facebook for you know where it was one of my favorites, beautifully presented in entire formation, the real story behind it makes it more meaningful. Thank you for sharing it.

I love the pictures the meaning. It was a very creative poem when expressing a friend. Its as if we know her now from your poetic words written. In other words you did a marvelous job and keep it up. Also grammar and punctuation were decent and as for your spelling just fix riped it has two p's in it. Other then that well done.

A very rich poem that is actually hard to review because it is emotionally charged and beautiful. It is amazing as all others over look her that you were able to see the gem burred beneath the sand. How we treat others to me reflects in our soul but in our world we are shown it is better to step on our brother or sister to get ahead and that getting ahead is the most important thing over just being human.

This is an awesome write.

Awe, this was so sweet. I wish I could know her, she does sound amazing. You penned this so well, it's obvious you care greatly about her. I love when people are able to be grateful for the people they have in their lives.
