49 (who?)
I used to write of darkness.

Of a place so hollow and apathetic,

And my insignificant place inside it.

But silence was deafening,

along with solitude savage.

I suffocated on thoughts of oblivion.

And I floated there.




my realm of


It wasn’t until I closed my eyes,
That I dreamed of COLOR.

C r e a t i o n   f l o o d e d   m y   l u n g s,
                             And  jump  started  my  blood  flow.

I was given all the universe

                                     .........Of which to shape into something  b e a u t i f u l..........

S o   I   g a v e   l i f e.

                               I   t o o k   c o n t r o l.

                                     I   c h o s e   t h e   u n a s s u m e d,
                                                    I watched them grow,  
                                                                       a n d   c h a n g e,  
                                                                                      A N D    C O N Q U E R.

         I hitched  a  ride  on  that  life-changing  journey.
                                               And while I saved this world
                                                              m y   p h y s i c a l   b o d y   m e n d e d.
                              I found my  s a l v a t i o n  through  c r e a t i o n.                                                                                                                          A n d   I   n e v e r   t u r n e d   b a c k.

I used to write of darkness.
B u t   d a r k n e s s   w a s   o n l y   t h e   b l i n d f o l d.
Just a true story.

I wasn't going to submit this one, but a friend convinced me otherwise. So I guess I'm not expecting this to be my best work or whatever, but maybe some words of inspiration to anyone out there feeling like I once was.

Yup. Comments are appreciated, and make me feel less stupid about my poetry :iconorzplz:
Yeah... walking away now..... yuppp

All I can say is wow! This is definitely one of the most ingenious poems I've ever read on here because not only did you write something with so much depth, you also made it where the font seemed to follow the flow of the poem. Great job! :D

This is phenomenal! The way the creativity and flow took me through it (at an alarming rate)...even my pulse beat harder...:nod:
Then I just sighed contentedly at the end...**sigh**
I love this:heart:

It's wonderful to hear that you experienced the 'rush' in this poem, I tried my best to put that feeling into words.
It isn't easy XD
