Thank You & Poetry

First- I want to thank people for the wonderfully supportive comments yesterday! Encouraging words like those keep me reassured that I'm on the right track. I love my path, and I really love all the amazing people I'm meeting on it. ^-^ So thank you! Even if you are reading, but not commenting, thank you! It's a comfort to know that my words are being read. Putting my thoughts and fears out there is one thing, having people hear them is another. Extending <3 to all of you!

Now I'm going to babble on about poetry.

I don't fully understand what it is about poetry, but it is one of my favorite things. It's like my brain just has a way of understanding the words. I pick up the 'vibrations' of the poems I guess you could say, because even if the words make no sense I can still get the poem. This probably has something to do with being an empath.

I recently wrote this poem for my AP English class. I think that poetry probably has all four elements buried inside it, this was my way of recognizing the water element. It surprises me that water was the element that jumped out at me, because I don't feel a special connection to water. Maybe this is a way for me to start building that connection.


Poetry could be seen as getting swept up into a river.
It’s too late to get out- all you can do is go with the flow.

This is never easy, though. The current can pull you along at times,
demanding more than you believe you can possibly give.
It can almost drown you. Then it gets gentle and evens out.
You think “How nice, I’m safe!”

Then you hit the waterfall. This is white water that you can never get out of alive.
It sucks you into it and never lets you go!
You can’t recover from these poems. You are absorbed by them.

They can change you so wholeheartedly,
that it is difficult to know if you are even the same person.


  1. I lovely poem indeed! You used the metaphor of water very well. :)

    The thing about poetry is that is speaks directly to the soul without superfluousness.

  2. Sweetie, thank you a lot for your sweet words. It's comforting to have a friend spreading good vibes to me.
