Something

There are whispers in the air a
nd a pounding through the ground.
Something tells me I shouldn't care,
that i'm still safe and sound.

Theres fire burning in my head
and I cannot catch my heart.
Something tells me I should be dead,
that I was supposed to be gone from the start.

There's glitter raining from the sky
and blood is pooling at my wrists.
Something tells me it's all a lie
that nothing true exists.

Right from the start
I was always torn apart

You write so well for such a young person but age does not make one a poet either, does it? Great poem!

Thank you, very much. And you're right, it doesn't.

beautiful exploration of the tensions that make us human ... dramatic images from a questioning heart

"Theres fire burning in my head and I cannot catch my heart"—the imagery created here is received with such perfect pain. And then this closing is like a knot of flesh throbbing with confusion: "Right from the start I was always torn apart" —bravo!

"Theres" should be "There's"

Thank you, very much.

Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
