    dotsMay She Rest(revised)dots

    There once was a girl who wished she could dissapear
    and mingle with the trees
    where she could sit and hear them in the breeze.
    She wanted to lie under the scorching sun,
    realizing the pain and punishment had just begun.
    She warned her friends, but they neither listened nor heard,
    she dreamed of feeling free as a bird.
    She did not want to be a puppet attached to the strings;
    she wanted to fly using an eagle's wings.
    Her parents woke up late one autumn morning to realize she was gone.
    Later that day the police found a girl on the beach;
    her parents mentioned something about her being"just out of reach".
    There was crimson blood on the ground;
    a blade in her heart:
    her parents silently let their souls bleed as the sight tore them apart.
    By her lifeless body lay letter:
    "I go now to ease everyone's mind,
    realizing to do this I must leave the world behind."
    At her funeral they were all depressed;
    As everyone walked away a silent voice said
    "In peace may she rest."

      your poem is sad ... and the idea of her being a puppet just for a while was great becouse it represents she wasnt free! it was special in a way and i like ur ending very much.

      i must say the revision did a world of difference, but the idea stayed the same. I love how to take the leader role, somewhat of a god position, i love the fresh view. Definetly a fav of mine.

      Your story is so sad. I have a problem with romantizing suicide because it is such a selfish act. It can scar people who a person might not even think of at the time. And if one understands karma they realize that the person will continue that same life in another body at a future time. O well thanks for the read

      yay, you're working on revisions! much better, and a very vivid story this is. So sad...
    "A silent voice said." That's a good line! As though everyone's thinking it but no one's saying it... Or like God's saying it...

      hey, thanks for letting me know to come back and see your revision.... i think that it improves the read SOOOOO much! i'm so proud!!! : ) But, anywho, just wanted to point out that about the 5th line up from the bottom, you need to write "a memorandum". Other than that, I can find no mistakes to fix. I think that you revised this very well.... thanks for taking the advice into consideration and fixing it so quickly. It is an honor to help a fellow writer to better their pieces! Perhaps as I have more time I will be able to comment on another piece of yours.... XOXO dandan
