Some times, I think I feel you
                                             r e a c h ing out
                                  for me
                                             in the      stillness      and the
                         night

but then I remember
                                                                      you're gone
               and where you've gone
                                                       there is
                                                                         nothing
to reach for

                    not even        me

                                  Or so, that's what they tell me
                                                                         every day
  when they find me            alone
                                                   clutching at the pieces
                                       the echoes
 of everything that was
                                      you
I miss you
           and I am trying so hard to
                                                                              wait
                                              to be with you again

and just when I think I cannot
                                                 take
                                                          another moment of this
          i  n  f  i  n  i  t  y         without
                                   you
                                                  I
                                       think
                                     I
                                             feel
                                                  you
                  r e a c h ing
     again

                  for me


                                                         and I smile
JANUARY 16, 2013 - In keeping with the #Glory-Be-Project

I usually have the most time to write late at night or in mid-day but it is always in the twilight hours in my mind :heart: I have a deep and unrelenting love for the darkling hours of our world, when it's not quite dark and night quite light... but completely and utterly beautiful. It is also so quiet which lends itself beautifully for my introspective and self-exploratory nature.

It helps me to feel.

There is a poem that I love called "Ascension" that was on my mind when I began to write this.

Nah just family issues..... And so many tragedies :c I just wish all the loved ones I've lost would still be here with me, I just don't wanna have to die to see them again, but that's the only way.

Thanks for sharing anyway~

Being only fourteen I'd say I've been through more than most people my age that I've met, considering what my family has gone through. But it's helped us become stronger and closer and that's at least a good memory. ^^ I know everybody goes through things, and I'm not self-pitying myself, but I think you would understand what I mean if I actually told you. I don't normlly tell people this but I think I can trust you c:

Fourteen? :giggle: Oh my gosh, you are so young and so cute! Sorry, on to the serious stuff!

It certainly can and does happen, age is a good measure of how *much* experience someone has, not necessarily what *kind* of experiences have been had! Seeing as how I went through some very rough things myself, as far back as I can properly remember, I have no problem believing that you've been through hard things yourself and are a better person for it ^.^
:blushes: Well, that is quite flattering miss! I would like to assure you that you can! And you are welcome to send any notes if there is anything you'd like to discuss or divulge privately, I don't mind in the slightest.

Psh yeah I guess XD

Yeah, I've met very nice people who have been through very rough things. Then there were not-so-nice people who had the 'perfect' life. Experience can really change a person and help develop them into what they're meant to be. It's really your outlook on things, and how you react to it. There re people who have been through a lot and were just grumps about it. If you let it affect you badly, then nobody will wanna be around you and you'll have a dull life. It's just your attitude that matters. ^^

I can typically tell if I can trust someone or not, better in person of course. XD But if I talk to you enough, I can be positive on trust level.

Sorry I'm taking so long to reply, my cat keeps laying on the keyboard. And my dog hurt herself cuz she's so darn big she thinks she can fit under the desk XD

Indeed! It's funny how life experience can direct people in their personality and how, oddly enough, people with easier lives can easily end up not being the best of people. It takes all sorts, though.

I'm glad that you are open to being trusting miss, it is a good way to be. And no worries, I'm enjoying what I can of my day before work and you have been a lovely plus to the day!

I love how you wrote the piece. The words themselves aren't what makes this poem so incredible; it's how you managed to put intricate emphasis on certain words in a way that embodies the poem as whole as well as individual words. It definitely makes someone feel like they understand. Visual emphasis is what I'll call it, I suppose. :)

You're a sweetheart :love:
And thank you! I was hoping for precisely that - it's something I always think about doing but, for some reason, never got around to doing for most of my work... which is odd because a huge part of what drives my poetry is my imagination and the imagery that goes along with it - striving to represent that imagery and emotion through formatted, structured text is the best I can do to represent this. :glomp: I'm glad that my intentions came across and I absolutely love that you feel you understand :heart:

Visual emphasis is a perfect descriptor.
