Poetry: Violet Embers

Updated on October 2, 2013
Blue flames from the bonfire
Blue flames from the bonfire | Source

Fireside, snow outside,
The burning wood comforts my aching heart.
The wind strikes a chime
and smoke flies into my eyes,

But i don't care that it stings,
for i am already crying.

Curled up in that chair,
I am hiding from everyone and
everything that disappoint me.
I sit there alone in my thoughts
just like i did as a child,
when everyone ignored my existence.
No matter how hard i tried to please them,
it did nothing to make them see
who... I ...really was.

Age is just a number;
time is just a perception.
Age is maturity and reality is

the imagination of the mind.
It doesn't matter what i say or do,
I will always be
the broken
child
in their eyes.

I am already dying.
Lovely flames blazing blue,
encase this heart,
protect it true...
So i may once trust and love again
one that is worthy too.

This series describes my perspective an luck of my life but not actual events (just to be clear). So I understand the main character very well as well as the search for justice and truth.

My favorite is the third movie of the series but to understand you must see them all and I prefer this version to the U.S. version. English Subtitles included.

      Thank you sheilanewton. I actually have been published before in a couple anthologies and for school. I didn't really think about doing my own book tho. Maybe when I get that job as an official book editor I can publish my own ;)

      LOL that would require me having more poetry to present and the hub actually letting me put it in the format I want. This wasn't all supposed to be left aligned, but even when I changed it in Edit, everything would go back to the left. It takes away from the poem I think.
