Poetry of bellaX

  • As you all know, I'm in a band. I write songs from time to time.
    All of our songs start off as poems (for me, at least.)
    The poem I'm about to share with you guys...is personal.
    I'm not sure if you guys have noticed or not...but I haven't been very active lately because I lost one of the best friends I've ever had in a tragic accident about two weeks ago. ='[
    It's been really tough and very hard lately, so I haven't said much to anyone for a while now.
    I'm slowly recovering, but I'd like to share this with you.
    This poem...is in the process of turning into a song that my band will be performing in the future...dedicated to his memory.
    This one is called...Flying High.


    Flying High


    Restless nights, tossing and turning in my bed
    Cold sweat, a racing heart, and pain in my head
    Sometimes I wonder if you’re still here
    But there is a familiar voice that whispers in my ear


    Dry those eyes and smile for me
    I’m still around, please don’t worry
    I’m flying high in the sky and I’ll protect you forever
    This isn’t goodbye, I’ll see you later


    Drinking Mountain Dew, talkin’ ‘bout old times
    He’s showing us signs that his spirit is still alive
    We’ve got planes flying over us during every speech
    That’s Casey up there, watching over me


    There were times when I was at my all time low
    I had no one to turn to and nowhere to go
    Casey had a smile that brought me out of my worst mood
    Life will always get easier and we’ll see him soon


    Not a day goes by where we don’t think of you
    I can still hear your laugh and your singing voice too
    We may no longer cry and no longer feel sad
    But I want you to know that you’re the best friend I ever had


    Dry those eyes and smile for me
    I’m still around, please don’t worry
    I’m flying high in the sky and I’ll protect you forever
    This isn’t goodbye, I’ll see you later

  • This is horrible... losing a friend at our age always comes unexpected :(. I am so sorry for you and wish you the strength to deal with it.
    The poem is touching and feels really personal... I am sure he would have loved it.

  • Quote from Strider

    Sorry for your loss.


    The song is beautiful. Sure he will like it.


    Thank you, Strider.♥
    My band just finished recording this song for our debut album...which is going to be called "Flying High."
    I can't wait for everyone to hear it.
