Shatter

by x.Athame.x   Jul 4, 2009


The hearts a ballet dancer
twirling magnificently
emotions run astray
falling down so blindly
ribbon of happiness
dream of joyful faces
blissful feeling; intense
pray it's not ephemeral
shattering the shell outside
heightened feelings unfold
a chaotic whirlwind
glorious in its destruction
breathe in deeply thick air
taking in every sense
drugged on sweet adrenaline
inhibitions lessen
darkness pierced by moonlight
she glows in the shadows
dark couldn't dampen this
the sun could not outshine
beating bloodfilled heart
joyfilled chest; "he's mine"

    I do not think this is well written I know it is. A wonderful metamorphic poem. Particularly love the ballet dancer lines,

    The hearts a ballet dancer
    twirling magnificently
    emotions run astray
    falling down so blindly

    as watching ballet is one of my passions and it left me feel breathless with its feeling

    I know that feeling and the end of your poem encapsulated it in you last lines fantastically,

    dark couldn't dampen this
    the sun could not outshine
    beating bloodfilled heart
    joyfilled chest; "he's mine"

    only mine finished "she's mine".
    excellent and totally impressed 5/5 Ray S

    I think this is a well-written piece. But it siezes to capture my interest. I'm not all for these types of poems. I find that when you try to word things differently and try to make it "unique" that it just flows away from the point. But that's just my opinion, others may love the poem.
