Pyrrha Sep 23
Sometimes I'm a pure and innocent shade of white
The shade remeniscent of cotton ball clouds on a sunny day
Sometimes I'm mixed with green, blue and black
I turn into a murky and distant gray; rain clouds
Then sometimes, I'm just pitch black
Void of every thing, a combustion of chaos
I'd rather be the colors that shine down falling through the cracks of a cloud
That shiny shade of yellow and gold that no amount of paint can perfect

That's what he feels like
Sunlight on skin
All the warmth and shimmer
He reminds me of the scent of sunshine
And everything bright and beautiful
That intangible color of sunlight through a cloud?
That's him
Ethereal

At this point it's not a crush anymore
You love me and I love you
It's like a game of chess
But neither of us know how to play

I want to tattoo his love for me into the universe
So it becomes permanent and never fades or goes away

I wish I could wrap his words around me like a blanket
So on the coldest nights I can feel his warmth surround me

He's my safe place and kindered spirit
Without him life would be an insecure downward spiral
He makes me feel surreal

Laughter laced with fear
Captured among final goodbyes
Cracked and broken fingernails; all that remains

Claw marks on walls
Bodies abandoned for years
Sinking into the deepness of the water

Families without closure
Dreams trapped within an ocean prison
Forever buried in a cold embrace

475 Bodies
171 left with a pulse
The rest consumed in an ocean grave

Students of Danwon High School
Left for a school trip
250 students were left to drown

They could have been saved
They could have escaped
They were told to stay; obeyed

Parents buried children, some with no body
Stood in empty bedrooms
And waited for a miracle that never came

Making empty beds
Trying to undo what’s been done
Losing faith in their nation

One man's selfishness
Took hundreds of dreams
And turned them into debris

As cherry blossoms bloom
Families grieve
Still waiting for a miracle

As cherry blossoms fall
Families fight
For the ones who no longer can
For my english class we were told to write a convergence twain poem about a disaster or tragedy that we thought had a big  impact. I chose to write mine on the Sewol Ferry Disaster that happened in 2014. I wrote about it because it is such a terrifying event to imagine going through, I feel like it wasn't talked about enough. I can't imagine going on a school trip and then suddenly my ship is sinking because my captain decided safety wasn't his first priority. It makes me sick to think those people lost their lives to his selfishness.

I'm afraid that one day
You'll realize my feelings
And there will be no turning back
I'm even more afraid
That you'll realize
You feel the same

It's so sad having beautiful words written about someone
And not having the courage to show them
Those words just sit there
Patiently waiting
Pyrrha Sep 5
Sometimes as writers I feel we are just spilling nonsense into the world hoping that someone will make sense of it
