Some poetry

A Poem By Erin // 3/21/2012

I've been reading a lot of poetry lately, so I figured I'd give it a try. Here are the results--let me know what you think! :)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 
16. The Writer's Wrath
 
Paper crinkling up inside itself
Smudging the ink
Abandoning those misfit words
Refusing to echo in your mind.
 
17. Held
 
Bare walls creeping up on you
Snaking their way into the naked light
Silence follows the loudest noise
The ripple of purple fabric
Wanting to blow away.
 
18. You
 
Heat brushes my ticklish core
Electric volts shooting my veins
Finger my neck, brush back my hair
Clap a hand over my giggling mouth.
 
19. Missing My Grandma
 
Sharpest reflections
Sweetest clarity that I wish I still had
Shades of gray have clouded my memories
Where you used to stand, still beautiful, still proud
Faces have blurred into black
And you, my friend, are the blackest of all.

 19 was my favorite, even

 19 was my favorite, even though it was the saddest. I think it was best executed as well as being poignant.

I have hated the words and I have loved them, and I hope I have made them right. --The Book Thief

Thanks, Anna. That's the one

Thanks, Anna. That's the one that I worked the hardest on. :)
