A Poem

Shall I write a poem

Something cold and dark as my soul

A metaphor

To my love of the sea and moon

Or just another poem

Of you and your stupid

 

No,  I’ve strayed off topic

 

A poem, to write

Nature,

My sweet, sweet nature

Inspire the gods

Muse for my pen

 

A playful taunt

From a well thought out prompt

It’s all I need

To plant my poetry seed

 

So many directions

So many worlds to explore

 

Just a word, or ten to start along

Anticipation grabs

 

Stop…I remember

 

Now that must all wait

For I’ve finished my lunch break

Write

I write a poem for every mood
I could write one about your shoe

I wrote a poem when you broke my heart
I wrote another when my life fell apart

I love to write about your smile
I seem to write best when I’m extremely tired

I wrote a poem for our darkest day
I wrote another when I walked away

I will write for class
I love to write while lying in the grass

I wrote of the clouds beneath our feet
I wrote of the world I wanted to keep

I see the future and write it down
I dreamed my death and write above the mound

I wrote to the ocean and to the sea
I wrote of birth and what will be
