You draw
railroad tracks
on your wrist
hoping the
metal-made grooves
will take
you somewhere
better

But these tracks
you're chugging along on
only put you
on a train
that is zooming
toward a deep,
dark tunnel

And at the end of this tunnel,
there is no light.
A poem reflecting on self-harm, I suppose. I used a weird metaphor, but I hope you enjoy, nonetheless.

You're welcome~ I love the metaphor. ^^ Though I love most metaphors in general due to how amazing they can be~

Wow... Your writing never ceases to amaze me. Just the impact it has... This has certainly touched my heart. I love that metaphor, it fits perfectly... How long did this take you? I probably would've spent a month just trying to get as good as this O-O...

Uhm I think I was playing basketball and the idea kind of popped into my head, so I went home and typed a little something up and BOOM. :) Most of my poetry is fairly just from sketch to here, haha. Or sometimes straight put on here, no rough draft. XD It is almost more "raw" this way, hahahha. AND JUST WRITE LOTS AND YOU WILL BE THREE HUNDRED TIMES MORE TALENTED FOR REAL> :hug:

Basketball, hm? I'm not really a sporty person, but if I had to pick a favourite, I'd probably go with basketball. Unless, of course, they come up with a sport that involves sleeping in until noon and then sitting on your laptop all day XD
Yeah, I don't normally write rough copies either, just do a little editing here or there after I get through the basics. I have so much stuff just sitting on my computer, waiting to be uploaded... Oh, well.
Hey, practice makes perfect, right? XD I try to write as much as possible, but I'm normally either busy with schoolwork or being forced to go shopping and such with my mother... Rrrrrgh. And whenever I do find time, I'm probably not feeling 'the vibe'. Or experiencing yet another ongoing case of writer's block. 
Sorry, total rant-fest there... Complaining is just so much FUN, though! XD Again, sorry for wasting your time... I just realized how long this comment is... O-O...

TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THAT SCHOOLWORK TIME! I find classes, when reviewing stuff you already know or have mastered, can be great times to jot down some of your best ideas! No no, love the rant. Stay awesome, cutie. :)
