    Miscellaneous Poetry

    Post by The Mel on Thu May 23, 2013 8:28 pm

    The Writer


      I write
      For the people are real to me
      I feel their hurt, I taste their tears
      I write
      For the stories demand to be
      Moments of hope, shadows of fear
      I write
      For the voices call out to me
      To give them voice, to lend them form
      I write
      A wordsmith I shall ever be
      For from this mind whole worlds are born.

    The Empath




      It takes me when I’m least aware
      My peace it always steals
      This is my gift, this is my curse:
      To feel what others feel

      A bitter sting flows through my nerves
      The pain is not my own
      I shiver in the too warm air
      Too hot to feel this cold

      I cannot see, the room too dim
      Despite the cheerful sun
      The shadows move, I cringe away
      My torment has begun

      A mournful owl hoots in my ear
      Above the city’s roar
      A lonely drip counts down my time
      Behind an unseen door

      A musty stench, a rancid fume
      Though spring is on the breeze
      A fearful bile has burned my tongue
      Oh, please, stop hurting me!

      I start to choke, to cough, to gasp
      I cannot draw a breath
      Phantom fingers crush my throat
      I die another’s death.

    The exercise was to write a poem about something from our lives and use images to convey the emotion associated with it. This... was my result.







    Prison of Innocence



      Cats in the yard, far beyond count
      Their reek within the walls
      Broken items like broken dreams
      Fill trash-narrowed halls
       
      Hard to be young, harder to smile
      Happy-go-lucky’s grave
      Never resting Cinderella
      A child made to slave
       
      Roof of charcoal, sides of blue
      Lilacs the only fence
      Once a house, drowned in junk
      Prison of innocence

    The assignment was to write a poem with the heavy use of the short u sound OR one that evoked an emotion with imagery. I tried for both.




    Old Town


      Ugly
      These cluttered urban streets
      Gummed-up gutters glutted with sludge
      Through which hungry strays skulk
      And the unlucky trudge

      Poor beggars assemble
      Under a tattered awning hung
      When the buildings were new
      And unrivaled streets sung

      Of futures once trusted
      These glum unloved streets are a husk
      An unsightly ulcer
      Of rubble, rust and muck

      Ugly
      This stunted clutch of roads
      Crumbled buildings slumped to the walk
      A gutted monument
      Of dreams cut at the stalk

    We had to write a sonnet this week, so I decided to go with a ship.




    Gladiator


      I never asked to win a victor’s crown,
      My name a chant that rises like a flood,
      The ground beneath me colored red and brown;
      The price to live: another’s precious blood.
      My hands are stained by all the blood I’ve spilt
      As crowds looked on like Lords of Court.
      I cannot see beyond the crushing guilt—
      What kind of man excels at such a sport?
      You saved me, too late – I am broken now;
      A lesser soul than you would walk away.
      Determined to fix me, I know not how,
      You stay beside me, constant, night and day.
      Beyond revilement I may never be,
      Yet still your blameless love is healing me.

    Angel Weeping


      She stands atop the lonely hill
      Among the gravestones pale and cold--
      The silent vigil that she keeps,
      Eternal weeping unconsoled.

      Her hands are raised to shield her face,
      To hide the tears she cannot shed;
      The image of immortal grief
      With sun-bleached wings and lowered head.

      Unthanked, she stands watch night and day
      Through summer's heat and winter's chill.
      Though others move on with their lives,
      Yet still she mourns and always will.

      And no one asks for whom she weeps,
      This keeper of the mortal dead,
      For tucked in earth around her feet
      Her charges each lay in their bed.

      She stands atop the lonely hill,
      Eternal weeping unconsoled--
      The silent vigil that she keeps
      Among the gravestones pale and cold.

    Lovely When Broken


      You’ll have to excuse me,
      We have never spoken,
      Just wanted to say you’re
      So lovely,
      So lovely when broken.

      The tears which streak your face,
      Down swollen cheeks spilling,
      Shoulders weighed down by your
      Sad spirit,
      Grief and heartache building;

      I can see you shatter,
      Come apart at the seams.
      It’s beautiful, you see—
      So lovely—
      To watch as your heart bleeds.

      Do not be afraid, now,
      I know it must sound strange,
      But I pose you no harm,
      I promise,
      I promise I’m not deranged.

      I just like to see it,
      To watch such pain woken,
      For then a person is
      So lovely,
      So lovely when broken.
