Skates in my Shadow

Hey, all! Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas!!!

I was bored today and wrote this poem. I finally wrote something again! Yey! Anyway, it's called "Skates in my Shadow". I hope you enjoy it :)

I haven't worn them in so long
But on my feet is where they belong
I spin around on ice that gleams
But open eyes tell me it's just a dream
The last time I skated was so long ago
And still there are skates in my shadow

I remember the rip and speed and chill
The wonderment, love, and thrill
There were good times and times when I'd fall
And now I wonder if I've forgotten it all
It's been so long, I miss it so
Knowing there's still skates in my shadow

I look at my shadow and it's not me today
But an earlier version that now seems so far away
I look down and what do I see?
A girl in a pretty dress with skates on her feet
Looking at it, my thoughts never stray
Never once from that far away day
And no matter what happens, this I know
Forever there will be skates in my shadow

I Am Out of School!!!

Fall semester is over, which means no more school for me for an entire month! I'm super excited! So, over this month long break, I am going to try to write more. I have several ideas (most of which I have already told you) that I'm messing around with and really want to spend some time with them and develop them.

I might post part of the first chapter of one I'm working on for your feedback. You guys are the best at helping me and I thank you for that. It's really great of you.

Well, gotta go. Just because school is done doesn't mean there's not other things to do! :)

ttyl! :)
