My Poem... After such a long time

It gets dark

As I switch off the lights

And not just the room

But me too, from inside

I feel the empty sphere within me

That holds all my emotions

But I lack love potions

At times I wanna feel the breeze outside

Hoping it would take with it the pain in me

Hoping that it would bring some pain similar to mine

By which I would feel less lonely from inside

Because it gets dark

As I switch off the lights

And not just the room

But me too, from inside

Btw your light too bright to be switched off - maybe just dimmed for a time.

Yeah.. also I told my mom today to stop asking me to stay at home to avoid creeps, and that she should help me become bold and not a meek

I love that - get your mum out with you - get some chat going - a soft slow attempt to change her mind?

Meekness never changed the world only the bold.

A bold dork - that's a really apt description for me! I like it.

Right now I am a meek one, but I wanna be the bold one
