I wrote this in the car yesterday on the way to the beach and I really like how it turned out. I'm normally not a poetic type of person, so I really am looking for comments here on how this turned out. Thanks everyone.
P.S. This poem takes place right after Falling for the Falls part 1.
(I own nothing).
(A poem from Allison Munroe's point of view)
I was given a chance.
A chance to be someone, to make my mark on the world
I was destined for greatness,
Brought to the town where dreams became reality
When I first got here, I was ready for anything
I had gotten lucky.
Lucky enough to be introduced to amazing people
I loved these four new friends,
And took comfort in each and every one of them
When I arrived on the show, I knew I was home
I had my limits set.
These limits weren't harsh; I was told they were for my own good
I listened to them intently,
Thinking how easy it would be not to break the rules
When I had boundaries set, I did my best with them
I met my match.
He was my opposite, a match definitely not made in heaven
I reprimanded myself repeatedly,
Scolding myself whenever he made me smile
When I found him, I tried to resist
I fell hard for him.
All he was was trouble, but that's what I loved most about him
I found myself charmed,
Mainly by his sweet side and amazingly good-looks
When we were together, I felt something
I had a problem.
A problem that got blown out of proportion
I was told I had betrayed them,
That they controlled how I felt, how I should act around him
When I had fallen, they refused to help me up
I was given a chance, and I just might have blown it.
So what did you think? I kind of like how this turned out, but I'll never know what you liked/disliked unless you review. :)
