Don'T Turn To Me - Poem by Holly Heron

Don't turn to me,
When all else fails,
And when the music stops,
Don't turn to me,
When the child screams,
And wakes you from your pleasant dreams,
Don't turn to me,
When darkness comes,
And when the light soon flees,
Don't turn to me,
To quell your fears,
And keep you safe at night,
Don't turn to me,
Or all you'll see,
Is something that will never be.

    Your work has quality, though it is somewhat statement-orientated. Much tell, not enough show But it does have promise... and if you are only 14 as per your age above (I can't believe that you are, to be honest, the writing seems far too advanced) - an astonishing future lies ahead... smile.
