This is a poem that I decided to write. It was stuck in my head for a while. I'm thinking of making a book off this poem. Either that or naming a character, "Royce". Because I really like how it sounds. Before you ask, NO. This has nothing to do with a boy that I know.
**and this is my first poem in a really long time. So if you comment, don't be so harsh. Haha.

In a desperate attempt for my heart

you went and stole it.

You lit it on fire like a cigarette.

You smoked it.

What happened?

I thought my heart was a precious token.

but, now it's broken.

You try and put back the

pieces like a puzzle

but, now you're trapped in a muzzle.

No one to set you free,

you are who you wanted to be.

You can't explain to me.

No, not once you're trapped.

So go on.  Make a choice

and make the right one, Royce.

If your thinking about doing more with your character Royce, I think you really should. I just did a similar thing with a character named August. First I had him in a poem, then I added him into a short story. People seemed to like it. Do more with Royce. I think it will go over real well. I like this poem
