This is for Fallen Angel's challenge :) I had to write a poem based on a picture. The picture is below. Enjoy! :)


You opened the drawer of sadness
The drawer I’ve kept shut for so long
You took away all my happiness
You made everything feel wrong
I was almost lost to the darkness
When a glimmer of light appeared
I retrieved myself from helplessness
Walked towards it while everyone cheered
I stepped into it, spread my wings
Flew higher than ever before
I lifted my head to the sunshine, felt like a king
Here everything was open – every window, every door
For at the bottom of that drawer
The drawer filled with mope
Was a small container
A small container filled with hope


I got third place for this!
Thanks for all your support! ^^

This is really good, I like how you used the drawer as the thing that hid your feelings. And I was wondering, can you visit my page and read my poems? I like getting people's thoughts on my poems.

This is really great. I love the symbolism you had with the drawer. That was what tied it all together and gave the poem the feeling it needed. I love this poem.

Eriza: very much a thought of a heartbroken girl, and gained her strength back! very nice, Mika-chan! keep flying even if this is your experience or just fiction, i'll definitely cheer for you!;)
