"Trust your heart if the seas catch fire, live by love though the stars walk backwards"

Been through many obstacles
Now I'm at my plateau
Touching the clouds
Maybe even the stars

Surrounded by water
What did I put myself through?
No one

Can't get off of this island
No boats
Just water

At the end
Just me
And I

I was in science class learning a bit about geology and this just came to mind.

Well the very first thing I noticed about this poem was its shape haha however strange that may be :P But i like how the lines start out longer and get progressively shorter. It adds to the effect of the "plateau," I think :) But aside from that...I really loved this poem! Especially the first stanza :) Your poem was short and very powerful. Thought-provoking too! I've found that I really enjoy poems like this...somewhat short, yet once you read the last line, you're like "oh my gosh..." Thank you for asking me to read your work! I've enjoyed every one of you poems :)
