Her Once White Wings

Her Once White Wings

A Poem by victoria
"

"for the ones who live for love, but only find lust"

"
For the ones who live for love
but only find lust.

Soft kisses through deadly wishes
lips crashing, thoughts clashing,
hold on to her
for all the wrong reasons.

Then let go
and watch her fall.
Unloved, but in need of it
Hiding the heavy feeling in her chest
hoping no one will ever know.

The clock keeps ticking
but she's stuck in an eternal still.
A dusty frame on the wall,
dripping black tears.
but still, she makes sure her heart is farthest from her sleeve.

She hates herself
because no one will ever love her, and its her fault
for not being pretty enough, sweet enough, or anything special at all.
She hates that everyone knows
 So she lets herself go.

Drawn to anything that gives her the attention she craves
anything that will fill the gaping hole in her chest
anything to feel protected and wanted.

She'll do anything

Of course, its just a quick fix
to forget the pain she feels when she's alone.
She knows its wrong
but she is too tired to care anymore.

And so, her once white wings,
scarred with hate and weighed down with regret,
have turned to ashes.

All she needs,
is someone to fill the spaces between her fingers
to tell her she's special, she's beautiful
to tell her she's loved.

But she knows she doesn't deserve that

I. Loved. This. :) This was an absolutely stunning write! You told a very real and very serious story of a girl in such a beautifully poetic and heartbreaking way, and I found myself going on this journey through the exploration of her life. I liked the way you structured this, and the way you started off with a simple line such as "She'll do anything", and then continued to describe it further. Amazing. :)

Dude, this is awesome. I liked the 'wearing your heart on your sleeve' reference, cuz it kinda made it click. It also reminded me of a song that I think is by Fall Out Boy, but I can't remember -_- Anywho awesome poem, and awesome meaning.

I can kind of relate, especially to the sixteenth line (4th stanza) I tend to turn to lust and push away advances of love so I did like this poem, you had great imagery;
"And so, her once white wings,
scarred with hate and weighed down with regret,
have turned to ashes."

that line in particular had amazing imagery.
and you showed deep emotion, leaving clues of those hidden below, unmentioned and of the few laying on the surface in the open.

I loved this poem. You're flow was magical. I loved the lines in the first stanza because of the internal and external rhyme. My only problem was how you changed the rhythm throughout the poem. But I liked this poem a lot. :)

"She hates herself
because no one will ever love her, and its her fault
for not being pretty enough, sweet enough, or anything special at all.
She hates that everyone knows
So she lets herself go."

Wow--very affecting--a powerfully-
descriptive narrative of this girl...
...an excellent creative write!!!
