The more control you have over yourself, the less control others have over you.

Tangled in your style and class
you twinkle like a sliver of glass.
Fragile and fierce with wicked eyes
you roll like thunder in the night.
Perched there on your thrones
you helped my feathers be shown.
And "through the woods" I flew
like a "little bird" with wings anew.
I've landed on "cloud nine"
where the silence guides my mind.
It rattles my lungs and tickles my bones
to hear the hush of the righteous tones.
I watch "the stars go out one by one"
as they remind me our journey's just begun.
So I ask you to join me on the silver cloud
and together we can satisfy the thrills we seek out.

The author's comments:
This is just something I wanted to write on behalf of the people on TeenInk who have become true friends of mine. Not only have they taught me about writing, but they've taught me about myself. To a certain four people I went to their page and found my favorite poem by them and I included the titles in this poem, hence the quotations. So, to Laugh-it-Out, dragonsandthree, Mckay, and -Hopeless-... thank you!

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

wow, the best gift in the world to someone is to write something for them, bet they're all downright ecstatic :) And well, I don't know what to say except that this is awfully brilliant. The way you tell the story. The metaphors fit right in. And it is so sweet really. I love this.

O.M.G. I love this poem and how you incorporated out work into it. Thank you, Lexus. It means the world to me. And you're such a great friend. Even though we've never met. This is a surprse to me. And I adore it. 5 stars. And I'm tagging it as a favorite. ^u^

Lexus, you are honestly and completely a true friend of mine too. Right now i feel like crying tears of joy and sadness over how much this means to me. It's not so much the actually poem as it is the bought and effort if naming and organizing and thinking and caring. I wish, more than anything that i could meet you an the whole teen ink virtual family because i feel that it would be the coolest group if people ever. You have always been willing i read my work be it the good and bad and each time you comment in my work or reply to my post, a cheesy smile lights on my face and my whole day is brightened. I am sure that you are a fantastic person and that the whole if New Mexico must love you ;) i have to thank you endlessly for all your support and dedication to the site and to me and thank you for mentioning me. I live you endlessly, my virtual friend, and even in my bad days i can always count on you for a smile. So even if we never bump on the street or in a cafe, just know that you inspire me everyday and you push me to be a better poet, and I know that someday we will both meet at a famous writers convention or something's thank you Lexus. It has been a real hot getting to know you on here. Keep rockin forever because you are amazing.
