shattered dream - September 1st 2013, 02:13 AM

i don't write much, and this poem doesn't rhyme, but i hope you like it.

pale hair, spread on the pillow.
eyelids flutter, halfway into sleep.
her dream simple,
faceless girl, spinning.
one, two, three..
it ceases to end.

same girl, same dream.
the one she has had for her whole life.
but today it came true.
instead of just a faceless girl, she sees herself.
ankles wrapped in ribbons,
she whirls with bliss,
all the bad things disappear.
they melt into shadows,
still there but ignored for the moment.

she lays on the ground.
the pain of her life caught up with her.
bruises inflicted,
long time coming, but til now avoided.
as bones shatter, the dream she had as a child does to.

those new shoes,
the ones she saved for secretly,
hang in her hospital room.
they remind her of shattered dreams,
but she keeps them.
someday, she promises herself,
she will be able to forget the pain inside and outside.
as her bones mend, so will her heart.
someday she will be that girl from her dream,
spinning her own reality without fear,
and the ghosts of her tortured past will leave.

Creativity takes courage
-Henri Matisse

Poetry doesn't have to rhyme to be good, and this is pretty good! This is so great and emotional.
