\"Flying is simple... you just throw yourself at the ground and miss.\"

I sit here
The phone dangling
Knuckles turning white
Won't let go
I hold on
But it's quiet
It won't ring
It won't let go
I won't let go
I can't move
The phone is stuck: frozen
I'm frozen
I won't let it go
The phone won't move
I don't let go
Frozen to the spot
Sick; need to move
Can't; won't let go
Just hold on
Can't walk away
Sick and heartbroken
Won't do anything about it
Just keep holding on
If I let go
It might go
I might go
I'll hold on

I appreciate it. What inspired me to write this? This is the piece that had a lot of inspiration and feeling behind it, but admittedly, was not my finest work. It didn't flow in the way that poetic thoughts do, but it was free verse, so I let it be free. I enjoyed getting the message down, so thank you.

Life is but a book just waiting to be filled, you make your own story

^-^ good poem I love it. It made you think of holding on and wondering the pain of letting go, if that makes any sense. I loved it keep it up!

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, but learning to dance in the rain.

This is awesome. I read the whole thing super fast while i was holding my breath. That was how you made me read it by breaking up the lines and just the whole style. Brilliant job! It read so quick, but even still I was able to feel the feeling inside of me. You forced that emotion in just a few words running down the page. I'm utterly impressed! :)

Wow... I really, really love this! I'm seriously adding it to my favorites, this is my favorite poem I've read on this site so far! Don't change a thing; it's perfect! If you don't mind me asking, what inspired you to write it? 5 stars!

When you have some freee time, could you please check out "Wrecked" on the Writer's forum and give me some feedback? Thanks!
