Hello people! What to say? I'm a Christian girl. I like to write. I write tons of poetry, some short stories, and other things.
God bless you!

You can be nostalgic for a place you've never been if you've been there in your imagination.

strokes of paint on canvas/those are my words on a page/watch as the ink blots drawn from the depths of my mind/stain papers as they grow yellow with age/wonder if they will live forever/in the imagination and thoughts of someone/for sometimes you'll find if the words are important/blotting them out is not easily done

Thank you to all who have supported me, and feedback is always welcome!
Also, if you comment on a piece of mine, I will generally respond to it at some point.

the rain falls softly

off the sides of 
buildings

running in rivulets
off my umbrella

soaking
that homeless
man
sleeping on the 
bench
with a newspaper
over his head

i can't feel the chill
i have a heavy coat
and the freezing rain
hasn't touched my 
face
and the biting wind
hasn't seeped through my
scarf

but he is shivering
trembling like a leaf
about to break free
of its branch

in an instant
it could give up
let go
suddenly gone. 

would anybody
notice?
a leaf among thousands
would anybody realize
that it's already
gone?

    ..... wow..... I'm pretty speechless after reading this. I thought after reading the title that it would be about a leaf on a tree, and it is; sort of. Really a huge metafive (better than a metaphor ;) and it's absolutely gorgeous in every way! I'm just mind-blown after reading it :) Fnatabulous!! :DDD
