Analysis of Solitude Stolen

Quiet and alone
I enjoyed my solitary
But then you came
And I became wary
You took my shadows
Replaced it with light
Now I can’t hide
Within artificial night
Why did you take me?
And tear down my walls?
Why won’t you let me
Stay confined in dead halls?

What is this?
What am I feeling?
My indifference is lost
My heart is now reeling
Against your hold
I’d fought fiercely before
But now I won’t go
I can’t anymore
I feel as if now
If I ever lost you
The shadows would come back
And my life would be through
…Don’t leave me…
…And I won’t go…

Brittani Bowden

My name's Brittani, I'm 15 years old, and I've been writing poetry for the last few years. I have written around 90 poems in that time. Not entirely sure if that's a great feat or not, but I'm happy with it nonetheless ^-^ And, of course, I will be adding and adding and adding and- okay, you get the point- to my "archive" (isn't that an awesome word? :3) of poetry for as long as I live...And maybe even after O_o Anyway, to whoever reads my poetry, I hope you like it and can be inspired by it. Any comments, suggestions, or criticism is greatly appreciated. P.S. I am fairly psychotic >:D and also comletely random. CRANBERRY-SAUCE!!! Anyway, enjoy my poetry :)or not...You're choice. haha more…
