The streets are so empty
And leaves blow across
Into the neighbor's yard;
The books I read don't
Fulfill me like they used to
I'm wanting you
And the cliches are killing me
But I feel them and
They hold no meaning in my
Colorful teenage room.
The woods are so dark and empty
The trees so stark and bare
I loved them when they bloomed and now
They remind me of death, and
My solitude.
The world seems to hold no promise
I'm left in the darkness alone
I'm feeling like nothing will become of me
I can't find my way back home.
I give so much, and recieve
Pain in it's multitude of forms;
But I love the search, I thrive upon
Nights and days forlorn;
Cause being caught up in a drama
Is better than being bored.
I've loved, but not maturely
I'm hoping it'll come in time.
Along with a future, a destiny
That someday will be mine.
For now I'm lost in winter
No joy in the spring to come.
Thinking of the moments we shared
And the pain I have come from.

Welcome to the family! I liked your poem a lot. You sound quite mature to have written these lines:

I've loved, but not maturely
I'm hoping it'll come in time.

Very wise of you! I look forward to reading more from you.
