I've had a serious creative block for months now. But tonight's events have struck a chord in my heart (I'm talking about the news of the t.A.T.u. documentary), and I was finally able to let some feelings flow.

I usually reflect on things every night before I head to bed, and I was reliving my initial reactions of shock to the news of Lena and Yulia's documentary (which I have not yet seen). The emotions hit me again, and I had to let them out.

I love t.A.T.u., and am still a fan :heart: No matter what their intentions were at the time, their past actions have touched me sincerely, and I look forward to what the future has in store for them :done:

I'm posting this poem here, 'cause I feel that others may be able to relate to it.

Now, on to the poem :p I don't consider myself a poet at all, just someone who writes what they feel :)

You really had me going, you...
Made me believe
You gave to me a new outlook
And now you retreat

Bring me up so high
Now drown me

We all bleed, and you're not different
But I thought otherwise
They all feed, and you give in
Pedastalize

I only want you to be you
I'd never want for more

Say you're one thing, then say you're not
What's the difference? The lie's been bought
Say you're with me, then stay away
What's inside you? What made you change?

I think you're beautiful, I do...
Know you're a star
It's not a life if there's no you
you caught my heart

Breathe life into me
Now drown me

Fill my thoughts, and fill my dreams
with idealistic fodder
I have grazed, and now I scream
Murder

There's something lost within me
I want to understand

Say you're one thing, then say you're not
What's the difference? The lie's been bought
Say you're with me, then stay away
What's inside you? What made you change?

Calculated moves still hurt in the end
There's no more need to pretend
No one's left here, maybe it's best
to give up like all the rest

You are *so* right with that one. I really liked the entire poem, but that line is what describes what I feel the most, yet I technically can't really make up my mind since I haven't seen the doc yet. But still, after reading what I have, this whole situation doesn't look good.

Very well written, and expresses what a *lot* of people are feeling.

Good job Raven. :) You should be proud of this one.
