17 (who?)
In a crowded room, filled with shallow souls,
Notebook and pen my company.
I sat alone, contently on my own
When a Dreamer sat beside me.
An artful mind, personal style, indifferent to the latest trends
That was the day, I had found a friend
And so began our story.

She didn't know she was a Dreamer.
You can tell that she was unaware,
By the way she asked about my thoughts,
When I had thought that no one cared.
She listened to my soft replies, wonder sparkling in her eyes
I pondered what she saw inside
A quiet mouse like me.

She always reminded me she was a Dreamer
Using a brush called "personality"
Painting through life, changing colors, with
Confidence and Bravery.
Splashing emotions onto canvas, she shares her world that I can't see
She put a pen into my hand one day,
And smiled, "Share yours with me?"

She showed me I'm a Dreamer
Unveiling my ability
To make rainbows out of black and white,
Breathing life into my fantasies.
The empty page that blankly stared, as bleak as my life used to be
Was now a door into my mind,
Imagination now my secret key.

She's forgotten how to be a Dreamer
Doubt became her vulnerability.
She gave into the words of narrow minds,
who mocked her creativity.
I watched her wither into a shell, light dimming into gray
She's now the girl alone in the shallow crowd,
Face lifeless and tear-stained.

One day I met a Dreamer,
Who made me who I am.
Taught me I could capture life,
With paper and a pen.
She gave me a reason, gave me a dream, to express my point of view,
Now it's my turn to help her see
That she's a Dreamer too
Something I wrote on a whim. I thought about what it felt like to meet someone who loves a different kind of art, but wanted to see how another one worked.

Quite interesting. Two different lives/styles meet and become friend easily. It happens a lot more than you think.

Ahh- I have a friend like that. She always encourages me let loose all my potential. To not hold anything back- but then when I look at her, she indeed, does her stuff with a great deal of emotion- but then when, for example, she receives a harsh comment, she shuts herself off and becomes dead to the world. She is her own worst critic, as we all sometimes are, and the things that she SAYS about her work! You'd feel like someone told her to go burn it or something! It's really, really sad to see such an artistic mind be dulled by the surrounding bleakness of the world.. Sigh- the road we take is a harsh one- filled with people who will hurl stones at us and spit on our trail. But hey, that's just how it goes. It will get better someday- (I hope) Great job, btw.

I sympathize with your friend. I used to be like that. She shouldn't shut down. Not for long anyway. She just needs someone to be just as positive as she is when she gets crushed. Amazingly, i found something so beautifully simple that always made me strive to stand when i was on my own. Anime. that thing is like inspirational crack for the soul. That and my English/Literature teachers always believed in me. Growing up, I never really believed in my abilities until I was twelve, but they did. I'm feel like I'm a favorite/good example because they take my work and show it to the kids they teach. Their confidence in me kept me going a long while. So just be that for your friend. And thank you. You may not notice, but I think you just triggered and idea for me to weave around.

I'm glad you've found some sort of support. :meow: I am lol. But she always picks herself up every time anyways- that's why I admire her so much. She shuts off for a bit- then comes back as strong as ever. Though I doubt she forgets everything though.. :D You are most welcome- may I see it if you ever decide to spin your web, then? :D It'd be awesome to read/see something I've, more or less, inspired someone to make XD

I honestly had something to say.

Then I read the poem.
