This is my most recent poem, written on February 4th. I don't think it's my best, nor is it my favourite or my poems, but I wanted to post it here anyways. I hope you enjoy it.

jump into the fire with no warning signs
living on the edge makes you feel so alive
your mindset is something I can't change
in your eyes I have become so strange
because you'll never understand why it takes so long
to find the razor-thin line between right and wrong
so I'll try to pretend that it's all ok
while you search for yourself in shades of grey
but I think we both know it's not the same
because neither of us can take the blame
without your clouds things become so clear
my world no longer drenched in your fear
I can feel the sun on my skin again
though I know your memory will always remain
when I see you up on the roof tonight
backlit with dirty city light
I'll remember the things we've said and done
and no matter how much I want to run
I know it's something I need to see
because these moments will always remind me
of the times we shared, where did they go
I think I lost it long ago
but no matter how imperfect this thing we share
I can't leave you behind, I'll always be there
So I'll watch you fall but before you hit
I will always catch you no matter how much I hate it.

Congrats on meaningful poem. Undertow of emotion and feeling catch me by surprise and almost pulled me under. Is good work this.

I enjoyed this Helena. You sound like a good friend, but don't want anyone tearing you down as you have your set of values.
Good work

That was powerful and I have felt those exact feelings toward a good friend of mine right now.
