I wrote you a poem because you said you would read it

She is dancing;
barely there, barely aware
- inside her cremated mind.
Remembering things that never was,
forgetting things she never knew.
She is waiting.
For life.
For time.

For she is oblivious,
unaware that she is dreaming;
she clings to her dance
and refuses to let go.
But, she stumbles
- and broken by the mirrors
within her imaginary studio,
she judges her own reflection;
without knowing why.

  6. you could not be any cooler of a person. i LOVE your poem. granted, maybe i'm biased because it's the type of poem i like and the imagery appeals to me greatly, but i think it's beautiful. fragile yet strong. the photograph you chose to pair with it is perfection. very gorgeous. you look like a forest nymph.

    back in my teen years i used to post my poems online, but nowadays i'm not sure i'd have the guts.

    excellent job. your courage is inspiring.

  16. I have to admit, I've only read poetry when they made us in school, but this poem is really great (I'd definitely read anything you write). I love the photo, the theme and the feeling of this. You are a very talented writer/poet/photographer/model/stylist/blogger etc :)
