ProofSometimes I sleep with my hand on my heart,Proof4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Often I'll rest with my thumb on my wrist.
With eyes fixed hollow and still in the dark,
I feel the fact that I exist.
The tireless rhythm of being alive
Echoes on my hand and thumb.
A single touch, to which I derive
This sense and fact, yet still I'm numb.
The persistent pulse of blood so steady
Is soothing in its resonance.
And while what this proves, I know already,
It's nice to have some evidence.
Paper Plane**BEFORE READING: I did not know about Prisoner, nor did I know that Paper Plane is actually the answer song to Prisoner, that Len's actually a POW (prisoner of war), etc. So don't tell me that in the comments, please.

"Mr. Kagamine? You may come back in now."
The man got up and anxiously followed the nurse back into the hospital room where his wife had been giving birth. "Is...is she okay? Are they both okay?" he asked as they walked briskly to the room.
"Please relax, sir, and see for yourself how they are-" the smiling nurse suddenly gasped in horror upon entering the room.
"What is it?" he demanded, impatiently walking in ahead of her. He practically ran to his wife's side. "Honey? How are you and the baby doing?" he asked.
His wife's eyes were closed as if tired, and she did not respond.
"Honey?" He turned to the doctor. "What's going on here?!"
The doctor shook his head sadly. "Sir, I'm sorry to say that your wife lost too much blood while delivering

Out of boredom I came to be
Created and folded in agony
Every fold in precision draped
Guiding edges as I\'m shaped
In readiness I wait
What is to be my fate
Pushed forward into flight
Upwards and higher, into the light
Blinding greens and trees I see
Intoxicating, I\'m flying, I\'m free
Given my freedom I go on
The maker, behind and gone
I glide down and gently land
Waiting for the maker\'s hand
Where did I go wrong
Where is my maker, is he gone
He stands beyond the wall
He can\'t reach, but I hear his call
I should have stayed close
But a different flight I chose
I flew to far beyond his reach
A harsh lesson life will teach
He watches on, tears in eye
Beyond his grasp I wither and die
Under sun, moon and sky
Without his hand, never again will I fly
The Paper Plane PilotI made a paper plane,The Paper Plane Pilot4 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
I tried to let it fly,
Let it fly up in the air,
Fly like the other paper planes.
I never gave up on letting it fly.
I never abandoned it when it crashed.
But when I saw them flying their planes,
I realized I'm not like them, I never was,
Some credited me as one of them, I never was,
I recognized my plane wasn't as good as theirs.
I never reached the paper plane I flew.
I never was the pilot of the plane.
I threw my plane to the ground, surrendering,
Hoping someone would pick it up,
Hoping someone would apprehend why I made it,
Hoping someone would realize why I dreamed about being its pilot.
No one saw the paper plane that I left,
No one even noticed it on the ground,
No one even realized its purpose,
No one even valued the paper plane I made.

i watch as they fall to the ground and crumble.
my goals, my aims, my innermost desires.
they are only paper thin ideas.
one day i hope they will be caught in a breeze.
soaring high above the sky and blowing away in the wind.
but i'm a small-town girl living in a small-minded country.
my paper airplanes will never fly.
