A Poem by Desiree S.

I started on a different road with writing this but it ended like this. Not sure, what it really means, but I think I was trying to capture a girl's journey in the real world...


I’m just a girl

Wishing to find the key,

To my fantasies,

Haven’t seen the light,

I’m afraid I can’t breathe,

Been captured by the lions of greed

These ferocious beasts have left me blind.

Blindness --

Darkness --


Can’t stand it much longer,

Feelings of isolation

Becoming a toxication

Been pushed into reality

It’s a total insanity

There’s no tranquility

Can’t find level of stability

I mean it’s a monstrosity.


Need to find peace

Maybe in solitude

--In the mountains

Where creatures,

Like me

Can Live!

Live without distress,


Or burdens of any nature

That’s where I’ll be,

If you ever wish to find me.

It reminds me in some parts of a rap - the almost staccato rhythm. Very well done! And it also seems to be about my home, Crown King. Deep in the mountains, we are all a little weird, but happy.

Wow, your vocabulary and the whole poem just gave a feeling to me. Lots of emotion in this one. I like the second verse for some reason, it seems to bring the feelings to life. A great poem! :)

Darn, they've already beat me to it.

Nice! I like the ending. Mostly because it has a dramatic feel.. You're a very talented writer and I can think of no criticism to offer this poem. Your choice of language was beautiful.

I really like the first and second stanzas :) I feel like I can rap it. XD Strongly worded, I agree with Teralyn :3
Keep it up! ;)

This is really nicely written, and I like the message. The sense of uncertainty seems to be popular among teens, seemingly more with girls than not. I like the way you captured it, the girl seems determined to be undecided, knowing she's going to a place she hasn't found yet.

It's confusing but it makes sense at the same time.

Really well done.
