A Poem by Skelasoldier

English project, expirementing with Metaphors and Similes


You are like a star in the sky

Your luster shines for all to see

Out of the billions, you are unique

Waiting for your moment, to fade


Like a brick wall you hold

Verbal attacks bounce off

The brick is your ambition

The mortar is your pride


You are a block of ice

Difficult to break and cold to touch

Slowly your willpower melts away

Turning yourself into a mess


Like a raindrop you fall

God's tear incarnated

Rapidly falling from your fantasy

Into this reality, just a stain on someones sleeve


Like a Pheonix rising from the ashes

You stand from your living grave

The powder on your nose a reminder

Of what you got away from


So now I wait

For that star to appear again

For that Brick wall to be rebuilt

For that block of ice to be refrozen

For that droplet of rain, to disappear

Absolutely mesmerized by the metaphors that you used. Each one conveyed the perfect image in my mind of this persons qualities. The end was a perfect summary as well. Keep it up! Hope you get a good grade for this project, best of luck.

The road to progress is paved in the failures of the present, I'm a living example of this. I've progressed as a writer, creating stories that I have since put into comic (Manga) form. I'm not very g.. more..
