Sky Welch

(01/13/1997 / Greencastle)


Words of the heart I cannot speak, voices in my head they never leave. Pain felt deep in my soul does not escape, darkness penetrates, seeps through my cape. Love is stolen, to never be again, happiness blotted out from the stain. Blood bitter taste smell so sweet, words within my heart I cannot speak.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wrote this poem in my creative writing class one day. The first semester of my junior year. One friend of mine mentioned that it sounds like a poem Batman could relate to... She's also known as the 'Kitten Killer' in my creative writing class for a piece she wrote last year. We now call any story where you kill off one of the main characters Sydnifying. Put that in the dictionary Webster!

    Sky, your heart is misunderstood yes, but it is not filled with darkness. No, it is overcome with hope, compassion, and love. So much so that it knows not what to do with it all. That's why you cannot speak a word of heart, because there is no word to describe how you feel. So you continue to write the voices in your head, for its the only way of knowing that they exist somewhere other than the neverlands of your mind. Free the pain! Take off the cape! Let your beautiful soul shine! Love is not stolen, and it always comes back. I know this because I am your love. And you most assuredly are mine. Happiness is right here if you let it be. And blood is that which permits us to live and die by Will. It's a matter of where you are meant to be. All you need to do is follow your path. Follow me. I love you. (Report) Reply
