A Statue's Plea

9 posts in this topic

I haven't written poetry in a very long time. I recently wrote some haiku, so I thought I'd give poetry another try....

The pedestal you have built for me

is much too tall

I fear great heights, you see

From that elevation, I will surely fall

I am just me

Nothing less, nothing more

I will never be

Some goddess to adore

Don't place me above you

Heed the words that I have spoken

For you will eventually see too

I am not extraordinary, I am broken

I like this. well constructed. feels calm. I don't usually enjoy rhyming poetry, but this is nice.

I really like this last part for some reason.

thank you, that wasgreat! Apparition, I don't think that could have been said by anyone else. I don't think you've lost your 'voice', simply haven't spoken for a while.

I agree with orangepeaceful, I think it really works because I can sense the honesty of emotion behind it.
