To Save Your Life

Heroes are hard to come by

Especially in this day and age

Because of you- I am still alive

Hail, the vanquisher of pain
-
I fought as long as I could have
But I sank into the weakness below
And I felt my sorrow's wrath
The helplessness took over

My fists let go
Of the resistance

I fell from hope
The light faded in the distance

It was all a dream
A wish...

A simple false belief
I hid...
-
Hands dangled frantically / Tears dripped endlessly
I needed a hero to save me / I yearned to be set free
-
A hand reached out
Held tight...

I was finally found
Relieved sigh...

I rose back to grace
And the darkness brightened

The savior I awaited
Lifted me up and triumphed

I prayed as much as I needed
Even when I was beyond drowning
I knew a kind soul would pay heed
Every mourning human deserves saving
-
When we are used to being alone

True kindness is difficult to find

But one day that hero will come

To save your life
I awaited for that day
For you to come and save me

My hands reached out to you
When you held on- I knew this hero was true

Old Friend: PrologueOld Friend

Prologue: The Day The Rains Came For Me

I had a feeling that it was going to rain soon. Oh how I wish to get caught up in it. I don't have an umbrella, and my coat doesn't have a hood. The desire to become drenched lingered, because I haven't gotten drenched in such a long time. I love the sound it makes when it hits every surface. The clings and clangs were a joy of mine. I secretly love it when my hair gets wet- or ruined. Especially when my bangs droop down into my eyes. I indulge in the sensation of when the water streams down my cheek.

It was cloudy and the hue was gray. I couldn't stand the humidity that plagued the city.

"The Other Side Of The Sky"
In volume three: A Chance Of Change

Sobriety's Rise
Sobriety's Rise

I exile you from my veins

You won't affect me ever again

Take with you the very worst of me

I will no longer be a part of thee!
-
Too long have my eyes been closed
So many years have passed in vain
I can't let the road ahead get any worse

I'm no longer a victim of your taint
I dwell no more- in those old woes
Though I regret the pain I allowed myself to sustain

Mirrors don't snare / Family doesn't glare
This hope I bear / I've made it here

Cleanse my spirit away / Allow scars to fade
Embrace the change / Unlock the cage

My dreams will no longer weep
The nightmares refuse to reimmerse
I can move forward if I r
Healing My Heart
Healing My Heart

I thought a day like today would never come
When a sincere smile finally broke through
And I've grasped onto this sense of freedom
When I forged this connection with you

I was so deep into it
Thinking I never would get out
Being stuck in the past has made me into this
But now I hold my head up instead of facing down

Because of this, I've realize there's a difference between my tears
I used to only shed the ones for all of the mistakes I've made
Which I've cried  for all of those long, and lonesome years
Until today, so I'm overwhelmed by the relief you gave

Undone, unvexed, unbroken
The difference is t

This one is excellent, and is my favorite of your works I've read.

One thing that stood out to me was the diction. All of the wording was emotional as it explained the events, and really made the piece powerful, vivid, and even relatable. The thoughts were thoroughly expressed and flowed well. It stayed interesting and involved, but wasn't overpowering. You have a real talent for matching the tone of the poem to all the emotions, no matter how subtle or difficult. The desperation and the struggle were quite well demonstrated, especially.
With this one, I'm afraid I'm having a difficult time of finding weak points. You did a fantastic job, really. 5/5

Wow, it's so uplifting to get a 5/5 in anything! :D
I was going through a phase while writing certain pieces. I would look at the world around us, and just notice that a lot of people need saving. I'm not saying, like....religiously, I mean figuratively. If its individuals with psychological problems, or health problems, you know, they could use a hand, or an ear, and maybe a friend. It was a tough phase to get through. I wrote a few pieces to try and help me transition away from that phase. Everyone needs someone, and someone could need everyone.

I'm so happy to finally being able to get around to replying to your groups' messages/feedback. It's wonderful, thank you!

I have to agree with you on that one.

I remember this quote I saw one time. "To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world."
And I absolutely fell in love with that instantly.
