Hi, I am 18 years old and I have recently reconnected with my lost passion of poetry which I use to navigate the turmoil of the inevitable transition to adulthood and the chaos of life. I've never felt comfortable showing people my work, but I am hoping that by posting it, I will hold myself to writing more.


My life is a broken music box; Every note is there, but I can't seem to fit them together. My dreams are scattered, the melody chaos. Trapped in this suffocating room, I haven't yet found a way to break free, express my music. I try to push the walls away, crack the lid, let my thoughts free. But its hopeless, pushed back by the steel palisades of my mind. The music grows louder inside my head, fortissimo. It pounds against my skull, I'm trying. Each note shrieks, I'm clenching my fists, Hard. Until the music dies. The notes clatter to the ground, broken bits and pieces. The melody gone. I crumple down, farther and farther into my lost soul before I start to build my music out of fragments, again.
