    Ivy, you're a sensitive soul with a perceptive eye, a good heart, and, I believe, a strong will to growth. You've written all this at nineteen (I sure hadn't at that age) . Your poems speak of heartache, faith, and hope. I pray for your safe, full spreading and use of your spirit's wings, and I feel you have the potential, as your life-journey continues to unfold, to express things that will also be helpful to others.

Best Poem of Ivy Christou

Butterflies Are Fragile

All I need right now is to be left alone,
Forgotten by the rest of the world,
Forgiven by my soul,
which I have disappointed once again.
Can I now shrink in a corner
like I did when I was a child?
Can I now run in my mother’s arms
so she can give me comfort with her love?
Can I now have my wings back?
Because I feel like an angel dismissed from heaven.
And if I can’t be compared with one
can I be considered as a butterfly?
Because when butterflies
get too close to the bright light
they burn...

I Would Rather Fade Away

If my world were about to end
I would probably let my existence fade away,
Without saying a last word
Or writing a letter to mark my presence.
I would rather disappear as quietly and namelessly
As I came in the first place.
All I hope is that my love for everyone
would not be a secret by then
or a scared assumption,
