These cloud covered days
Shadow the light I crave

Staring blankly into the sky,
No sun blinks through the mass.

No glorious sun brings my love,
Yet, it is only the gray that blankets my dreams.

Nobody here, only me alone
Still hopeful to see that great star.

I reach my hand toward the heavens
And beg for the light to dry these tears of blood.

The chilled wind slowly stirs the sky above.
I must be patient, I must be strong.

It will only be a matter of time
Before the spectacular ray shines down.

I know it, although it seems so far away,
In the end, I’ll smile once again.
I wrote this poem at school one day... Personally, i like it alot, but i donno about you folks :P (Lick) Ofcourse it has significance.. obviously it's related to depression and stuff.. but it's actually about having to wait until my life feels complete

oh and as for the screen shot.. it's a pic that i took while driving down my fav road in town.. because i always drive like 80mpi on it on it :D (Big Grin) But actually i took the pic specifically to use as the screen shot because the sky reminded me of this poem.

I don't know if I like the poem so much because of circumstance or aesthetic beauty, but that is definately great. You can probably imagine why I personally think that, but outside of personal situation it is still great.

I really liked that. This poem has a nice honest, to the point feel. A little more rhyme might have helped the flow, but it's good as it is. :) (Smile)

The screenshot's a really pretty shot, and it worked well w/ the poem. Maybe you should submit the picture as a photo on here?
