Treasure Island

Aria Siren


Delicate


Delicate
I fancy myself strong
But I am
Tired
Of being strung along
Vulnerable
Emotions easily bleed
Used
Afraid of what I need
Unsure
Of what I am
An unwritten letter
Crumbling
A dead flower
Tumbling
Through deserts' sand
These petals are
Falling
Falling
As you push them back
What's left of me is
Crawling
As you trace this crack
This
Fault line
Running from heart to mind
Fingering my
Pulse
But how quickly you leave my side
And this beating heart is
False
And I am left neither
Dead
or Alive
Damages
Real or my own perception?
You hand me a mirror
But I can't find my
Reflection
.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Someone called me 'delicate' and it intrigued me. I never thought of myself that way, but it's probably true. Just exploring the idea a bit.

    So i left a comment before but somehow it erased. I really don't even know how to re-write what I said but know that this poem is definitely one of my favourite ones. Ask me for which specific lines some other time (soooooo mad my former comment erased! ! ! !) and like just seriously awesome job. Love it. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
