Our First Post!

Sunset & Sky 165

Hey everyone! Welcome to the Community Story Board! This is our first post ever:) It is my honest hope that we can make this a fun place for everyone to share their ideas and individual literary expression. The following is a group poem written by (in order of contribution)  petitemagique  Ionia Martin
Mohamed Ossama
Charles Yallowitz


Broken, yet again.
Smashed into pieces, devastated
Left alone in the dark, beyond repair
Painfully lost, feelings annihilated

Giving up, no more
Lost the fight, strength has crumbled
Maybe for good this time
Ripped apart, courage scrambled

Twisting, coiling, burning
turning me outside in
a silent viper of regret
confirming all my sins

Darkness creeping, crawling
until my soul is lost
forever falling weightless
no matter the cost

Thinking musing deeply,
wondering if I’m really dead.
Oblivious to the fact
that I’m just lying awake in bed.

Heart is pumping blood,
rushing swiftly through my head.
Carrying painful memories,
of nostalgia and regret.

Like vivid shots of pain
Thoughts burst within my brain
Dredging up the sorrow
Buried deep within my soul

Sweet tears flow down my cheeks
They glint with regret and hurt
An attempt to cleanse my inner form
If there is any left to save

Darkness tries to damn me with its lies
But I choose to believe there’s a spark
of the purest light within my heart
that if nurtured will grow deep roots

A stalwart tree of strength and hope
A strength, so strong it will not bow
under even the most vicious of winds
We are the songs of victory told
