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.
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.
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
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.
