The Rope

The Rope

A Poem by sarah

I spent every moment weaving this rope

Delicately weaving

Making it as strong as possible

Making it so thick it could hold anything and anyone


You helped me weave this rope

We worked on it together

Day after day we worked

It got thicker every moment we spent together


But one day I fell....






I could feel myself falling hopelessly

When all of a sudden you threw the rope

I grabbed on to it as tightly as I could


And there I was

Dangling from a cliff unable to save myself

I tried to climb the rope

But I couldn't


You started to pull

Tirelessly pulling the rope

I moved a little each time

But I continued to slip


I watched the sharp rocks that greeted me at the bottom

You swore you wouldn't let go

That nothing could break the rope we had made


But my eyes couldn't help staring at the rocks that waited for me

But I believed with all my heart you wouldn't let go

You promised

I believed you


But when I looked up at you I saw weakness growing in you

I saw the judgments of others haunting your mind

I saw fear take over


And then it happened

You let go....


You let go of the rope we had made

You watched me fall hopelessly to my doom

You stood there and didn't care

I even saw a small smile appear on your face


How could you?

You let me fall

You didn't care

You broke your promise


You let go of the rope

And now I suffer because of your selfishness

I like the analogy on this one. It's a little too long for my taste, but overall I like it. Great job! :)
