A Poem by Jordyn A. Ruhter

I slipped into darkness,

Unsure of even the time.

Day by day felt broken,

As I watched the puppets dance.


A name unspoken,

Words pent up,

I cried myself to sleep

Many nights in a row.


A knight in armor swept by,

Pulling me from sorrow,

Carefully tended me,

And took my what remained of my heart.


To him, the knight, I am grateful,

For he saved me from myself

And even from uncertainty,

And to him I am grateful.

I loved the first stanza.
The rest was good but I just thought that part about watching puppets dance was brilliant.

I am different and I openly admit it. Why be like everyone else; a zombie in which our opinions are nothing but dust in the wind? Where our differences are ridiculed until the invinsible force that is.. more..
