I am a mouse.
I am quiet, I am nothing.
I am a book that nobody has read.
I am an eclipsed sun and a cloaked moon.
I am irrelevant and unwanted, a broken toy in an attic.
I am the dust in your rear-view mirror that you leave behind.
I am the air that you breathe in and spit out as something different.
I am the palest white. I am the darkest black. I am the dullest, emptiest grey.
I am the old man with forgotten memories and the baby who has yet to make them.
I am a forgotten word, dangling on the tip of your tongue, hanging on the noose of your lips.
I am a dried up stream. I am a felled forest. I am an abandoned cornucopia of resolute nothingness.
And there is Hell burning in my eyes.
Different to what I normally write, but hey-ho. Inspired partly by my own life, partly by the character of Liesel in Markus Zusak's The Book Thief.

Please let me know what you think! :)

I truly felt inspired and empowered reading this. It has to be one of my favourite poems of all time. Bravo. :)

Woah! I just finished reading The Book Thief myself, and when reading this I thought, "This wording and atmosphere reminds me a lot of Liesel. That's kinda cool!" Then I read the description and BAM! What a pleasant surprise.

I want to see that Movie, a few fellow Da friends loved it, as I love this poem. I love the style you used, it looks good but I love your words and how you put them together to show and tell of your emotions. And it is exactly how I felt most of the time growing up.  But not now, I've done a lot of hard work.  :) on me, not to feel that way ever again.

Thank you very much! :hug:

You should definitely see the movie, but I recommend reading the book first. My friend told me we were going to see it five days in advance. It's a pretty long book, so it's a testament to how brilliant it is that I managed to finish it in four days straight. Just be warned; you will cry.

Thanks for telling me, I'll wear my waterproof mascara that day!!!  I will try to read it first like you said, I usually like books more that the movies.
