Broken Annotations

A Poem by Emma Marie Taylor

Her mind is the motive 
and her thoughts are the knife 

For her heart is a whirlwind
And the silence, her life
The sounds just keep going...
The voices keep screaming going 



Her words are the evil 
and her distance the good 

They want to understand 
but they never can 
And she wants to tell them 
But not like she planned

Because all of this is just a curse 
Because explaining herself 
will make everything worse 

And she loves them but her mind is still reeling 

Her thoughts are still screaming 
her heart is still feeling 

So her distance does the saving 
because  her mind is misbehaving 

And he asks her whats wrong 
And they ask where she's gone 

And she cant lift the cage 
or start over, reverse 

Because explaining herself 
will only make everything worse

This is a very powerful and creative poem, which pulls in the readers, its as if this character is fighting inside of her head and is going to loose control one day, its really remarkable what you've done here Emma.
Keep writing like this, and I'm sure you'll be a great writer :)
