It's kind of like when you stick your finger in a light socket,
And a shock ripples through your body.
Then, everything is clear,
And you understand why your parents told you not to.
It's sort of like when you look at the sun,
And there's beauty and light in the first instant,
But then there are just black spots and pain,
And you understand why it's bad for your eyes.
It's almost like when you're falling,
And you feel weightless
Until you hit the pavement and cut your knee.
Then, you live in constant fear of falling,
But you meet that one guy,
And you can't help but take a chance.
You fall.
He shocks you;
He burns you,
But he doesn't catch you.
Poem I wrote while listening to Panic! at the Disco and thinking about him...
Oh, and now this is officially published in the Creative Communications poetry book. :) I'm so excited!!!

Something to think about...I would have never made these connections but now that they are mentioned it is obvious how true it really is..

really lovely poem; the imagery is so pronounced and rich. I think a ton of people (including myself) can deeply relate to this, and the way you build up to the last line is perfect. Beautiful work :aww:

Thank you so much! I'm glad that I've touched people, and they can relate. :) I'm surprised that people actually like it so much, because it's a really personal poem and I kind of just wrote it on a whim. Thanks though!

usually the more personal ones are the ones that get to people the most ;) That "pinpointed" emotion is actually a lot more easy to sympathize and empathize with than you think :) It's really beautiful. Well done :clap:
