Dear imagination, can't you be the thing you were
Butterflies and daffodils and happiness so pure
Sunny skies and lullabies and dreams of what could be
Hidden worlds and wonderlands of things they couldn't see
Shining gowns and silver crowns for dancing with the prince
Twirling with excitement, though the others weren't convinced

Dear intimidation, did you find it to be true
All I ever needed was an overdose of you
Silly stares and laughter slowly flood a child's mind
Making me abandon every daydream I could find
Lost beneath the shadows of the sky so dark and dead
Far too weak to turn around, yet scared of things ahead

Dear destructive tendencies, I feel it's time to hear
You were all I had when nothing else seemed to be near
Everything so out of reach, too far for me to see
I decided I would choose the needle next to me
Slicing through my very skin to feel something once more
Weeping through the satisfaction I could not ignore

Dear imagination, can't you be the thing you were?
Looking at that little girl... I know I should be her…

That is perfection. It is so very true.... we all miss the innocence that left with our childhood.

Beautiful. Amazing. There aren't really any other words that come to mind to describe it. This one really struck home, and shows the strong emotions behind the poem with the rhetorical questions, and how its written like an entry to a journal. Very well done!! :D

This is amazing. I feel your emotion radiating off it, and its not my computer trying to breathe. You are a very good writer. I admire how you were able to take what you went through, mix it with your emotions and put it on paper. When I see others do that, it comes out in a jumble of mixed up words and things they wish they could say but cant. You on the other hand seem to be very adept to doing this as I can see. Very nice job

I love all of your poems and if I could I would each and everyone to my favorites... but that would take forever! All of your poems say the same message, but each one with their own story. I love your writing so much and Ah mah gawd I can't even say anything else cuz there is nothing else to say. YOU ROCK MAN. And keep writing.

This is the story of my life.. Intimidated into thinking boisterous positive thoughts were a bad thing, and resorting to destructive thoughts and images to at least make myself feel something.. And now I'm facing reality head on with no defense. It's hard..

I feel like this poem describes it perfectly. I wish I could immerse myself in positive images without negativity sucking the life and hope out of them..
