Chelsey this is incredible. I love the way you brought life to these pieces of paper filled with your thoughts that you've mistreated. You aren't the only one scribbled truths that refuse to be accepted. I really adore this poem, I think it's beyond amazing. Sooo good, thank you for sharing it :)
I've come to the conclusion I'm wasting
ink like I'm misusing my time.
I've got abused paper that lies on
my floor in pain, crying pieces of
confetti because I've torn it to bits.
- I love this so much! I too have done this so many times and I feel the same about wasting time, but somehow continue to do this. I like the idea of the paper being abused, like it is there for you trying to help you but is left neglected and all torn up and left in a pile scattered across the floor.
Ya see, I have to stop myself
from expecting you to understand-
you never will.
- I love this line here, we can all relate this to somebody and something in our lives and it is a hard thing to feel, when no one else would ever understand these emotions and thoughts that we are going through. It makes these dark times so lonely.
I like your creative bit with all the mixed up lines and making them into a miniture verse in the middle of the poem, it makes me wonder what each of those lines would have continued on to say if you made them each into poems.
Your line about emotions never having the courage to live, this really hit me, I thought this was so powerful and so true if we really think about things deeper.
I loved this whole poem Chels, I am really enjoying your latest work, but sad to know you feel this way - although for some reason they are my favourite poems from you, I can totally feel you let go in them.

I have no idea why I hadn't read this piece yet, I swear I do not know, but congratulations, it is an honour to share the front page with you...
I am sure so many people can relate, and your usage of words and metaphors is totally brilliant, really, it is so creative and thought out, and it flows perfectly too.
I actually nodded my head and smiled when I read this one because....I've had a number of ocassions when I've been in the same situation...just can't find the right words. I love writing/receiving letters but it has become a thing of the past now....txt/email etc now rules and....I'm not sure it's such a good thing...I know I've got slightly off course here haha!!! Congrats is really what I came here to say....I did think Amanda Todd would have taken it out this week I must admit!
