The shorter the poem, the more difficult it is to write. Every word must be exactly what you intend to say. There is no time for long winded explanations. Often it may take longer to write a short poem. You are more likely to write it and revise it many times before you feel that each word is perfect and perfectly placed. This may be analogous to a small family or group. There are not many people so each one much show up. Each one must do their part to create a loving family unit or group of friends. Every family member or friend must play their role to perfection.

    They take away my family
    They tear us all apart
    They try to erase the memories
    But can't erase the marks
    They cut me open
    And left me with the scars
    They left me with the bandage
    But took ..........

    Save me,
    Don't break me,
    I love you,
    You hate me,
    Big deal,
    You'll thank me,
    There's no way to help me,
    But if you just tried, then maybe, just maybe, you could save me

    I walked through the hallway holding my wrists,
    hoping no one will see me like this.
    He looks at me, scared what he'll find.
    He never thought I had these things in mind.
    He asks me, "...is ..........

    I don't think you understand exactly how I feel
    I don't see how you could, you'd have to live my life for real

    Shattered soul, tattered mind.
    The way back is what I hope to find.
    Broken dreams lost without a trace.
    Lately I've been feeling a little out of place.
    Broken heart fills me with sorrow.
    Please ..........

    It's hard to trust someone who always lied.
    It's hard to love someone who made you cry.
    It's hard to care when you want to die.
    It's hard to believe when you have no pride.
    It's hard to forgive ..........

    Life gone
    On my own
    No help ever found
    Shattered thoughts hit the ground
    Brain dead
    Nothing in my head
    Slow fade
    Nothing left to say
    I hear your voice in a whisper
    You make my life so much ..........

    When I look into your blue eyes
    all I see is your thoughts moving inside your head.
    I want to say how much I love you and how much I think of you,
    but all I get out of me is just looking at you ..........

    Water pouring down around me,
    Music to my ears,
    Washing my worries away.
    Lightning shooting out from the clouds, nature's fireworks they say.
    Thunder pounding, making my heart beat fast, the ..........

    Torrential rain
    Falling tears
    Mixing with my secret fears
    Lying tongues
    Failing hearts
    Pleading pain to depart
    Smile for show
    Cry to be
    Unknowns waiting to damage me
    Survive I shall
    But ..........
