Bring You Back Home

Bring You Back Home

Where did you disappear off too?
Is there a way to bring you back home?
I miss the curves from your hips.
I miss the cleavage of your breast.
I feel lost in a forest full of trees.
Hoping you aren’t that far ahead.
I keep walking, crunching the leaves below my feet.
I keep looking.
I keep searching for a sign.
Where did you disappear off too?
Is there something to bring you back home?
I miss your distinct chuckle.
I miss the shade of brown in your eyes.
I feel lost out in a vast sea.
Hoping I see your boat just ahead.
I keep paddling, struggling for breath.
I keep looking.
I keep searching for a sign.
Leading me to where you are.
Is there something I can say?
Is there any way to bring you back home?
I will sleep now, as night blankets the ground.
I will wake in the morning alone in the bed.
Time will continue to pass by as I keep looking.
I will search until I can’t search anymore.
My love will help me find a way.
A way to bring you back home where you belong.

Tumbling, Tumbling

This is my second of five poems for my creative writing class assignment. I used the photograph below to inspire myself from the webpage she instructed us to use. I was not allowed to write haiku’s, or use rhyme, it had to be contemporary, the poems also have to have concrete nouns matching lines in poem. I hope you enjoy it. Now onto my third poem for the set needed.

Tumbling, Tumbling

Tumbling, Tumbling

Leave your trash there on the sidewalk.
Burn enough petroleum so the air turns black.
You’ll never look back.
Make your money stealing resources from the world.
Fresh water, phosphorus, scandium and terbium you hide.

Build your empires killing mankind.
Tumbling, tumbling, collapsing down.
It’s all obscuring mother earth.

Toxic waste decorates our yard.
Smog fills our lungs.
You should be so proud of yourself.
The damage you’ve done.
Dying slowly, like a frog in boiling water.

Build your empires killing mankind.
Tumbling, tumbling, collapsing down.
It’s all obscuring mother earth.

The sun is baking us.
Butylated hydroxyanisole, aspartame, maybe some sodium benzoate on the side.
Human buffet just for you!
Build your empires killing mankind.
Tumbling, tumbling, collapsing down.
It’s all obscuring mother earth.

Nature Notices

I have to work on an assignment for my creative writing class right now, poetry! I have to write five poems with a minimum of 800 words for the total packet of five poems, the poetry has to be contemporary, I am not allowed to rhyme. The first poem that came out of me is called Nature Notices. One option for the assignment is that we can look at a selection of pictures from a webpage she gave us from here http://www.open2interpretation.com/waters_edge_results.html and choose one to write a poem about, so I chose the picture of a woman sitting on a log. Feel free to leave me feedback. Now I must write four more poems before tomorrow! Hope you enjoy the first.

Nature Notices

The morning fog hovers just above the sea.
It waits for someone to notice.
Notice it dancing above the surface.
Notice the wispy movement.
I notice!
Alone, on a log that keeps me company
I wait. I wait for someone to notice.
Notice the absence of my shoes.
Notice the absence of my coat.
The wind notices me.
It greets me, mist gently kissing my cheeks.
The sea notices me on this log.
It greets me, whooshing over the log tapping my leg.
Nature notices!

You walk by me daily hustling through your life.
I could be on that bench beneath the tree.
I could be in that elevator escalating three floors.
Am I invisible because you do not know my name?
Am I invisible because you believe I am a stranger?
I notice your shoes, they match your shirt.
I notice your hair, wrapped up in that golden hair clip.
I notice you. Do you notice me?
I’m going back to nature where I am noticed.

Take It

hekills

If it’s life you want to take away
Then I won’t live another day
I’ll give you want is dammed and cursed
And all this hell, you’ll be immersed
Feel the flames that burn my soul
Listen to the voice that never goes
Take it, I don’t want it, you love it, I hate it

If it’s tears you want to taste in vain
Then I won’t hide you from all the pain
Come drown in sorrows of the deepest well
Feel all the hate and loss in hell
Oh how sweet the agony of others
Oh so tragic that I can’t love another

I try to believe that what you said wasn’t true
I try every day to forget some part of you
But whenever I see my face in the mirror
I see your eyes so dark and clear

So here I give the key to my soul
All the pain and sorrow you could know
I’ll try to forgive my foolish heart
When the life in me I give you to tear apart
Take it, I don’t want it, you love it, I hate it

Work Of Art

workofart

I love the darkness in your mind
The devil playing in your rhyme
It soothes the despair
I bear in my soul
The void that won’t go
Your words a nebula
Around my heart
It is such a work of art
