A blank sheet of paper.
Pen in my hand.
It gives me the power,
To create a world of words.
But the paper mocks me,
For my hand is eternally numb.
It does not move.
It does not write.
Worst of all, it does not feel.
And my world is shattered.
Bits and peices.
Shards of mirrors.
The blockade of the heart,
Nerves of the messangers.
The blood which flows,
No longer...
Where can it all go,
Except back to the heart.
And these reflections,
Oh so familier...
I do not wish to see.
For the one I see,
It is not me.
Yet the tears still flow,
In the world that is still so great.
Though my fear is greater.
It tries to overpower me,
And it is winning...
It taunts me.
Injecting false thoughts in my head.
Untrue feelings in my heart.
The ultimate lie.
Worst of all, it blinds my eyes.
These eyes that light the world for all,
But darkens it for me.
And I stumble and fall.
Further and further,
When there are no more depths to fall.
And the world is on a pedestal,
Looking down at me.
I question why I must compete.
Why must I rise above.
Feel as though I am finally good enough.
As though I am an equal...
The fear is winning,
It's driving me insane...
And on this white paper,
My hand lays upon.
And I can't even lift it,
To dry these eyes.
To let them see once more...

Wow this is incredible. It's really hard to believe sometimes that some of the best authors and poets on this site are so young. You, my talented sweetheart, are one of those young poets. *Fav* =)
