Hello followers!

So I will be switching over to another blog that I created through wordpress. I’m leaving this one up for now until I get all my work transferred over to the new one. But any new work I do will go straight here: https://longprewrites.wordpress.com/.

Thanks to all of you for following me!

Puzzle Piece Princess

•December 30, 2014 • Leave a Comment

I am nothing to be curious about.

I am in few pieces to put together,

and I paint a picture of several cliques

that I hope will bring hope into my life like sun-shiny weather.

I am nothing to analyze over.

I emerge from a storybook in a beaded, purple gown.

Long, braided hair weaves together a tale that I have grown

accustomed to telling; a false image I present, despite how I feel deep down.

I am nothing interesting.

You want more, but I am static.

I am too far down in being the optimistic, straight-A girl

to delve into a true sense of self that stretches beyond a number or letter.

Don’t figure me out, because then you’ll see that I am not a dark, mysterious soul

with a tragic, wild story to tell. I am just a pretty, preppy, princess waiting for things that aren’t real.

My puzzle is simple; a perfect image of what’s expected,

And when you put the pieces together,

That’s all you’ll ever see.

A Published Poem

I had this poem recently published in an anthology. I would be honored for some constructive criticism.

Sincerely,

              Poetofmidnight

 

Imagination

 

A desolate space of wordless heart,

damned in meaning from the very start.

A voice depleted of elation.

A marriage without consummation.

Until I break from pattern.

I birthed a universe through the bottom of my bed and beneath the whites of my eyes.

I magically made a sky of emerald clouds and the grass a sapphire hue.

I concocted a device that uprooted purple pandas from rainbows that smiled;

they sang with soaring wizards with wands of kissable candy cane riddles on their lips.

Then a gust of sin blew away

the light.

Darkness swiped its cape over the land.

No fear, I vanquished its illusion, because I was king.

I gathered wool in a place where rivers ran of honey and trees melted to dust;

where all the scents were that of color;

where the world loves all around.

A world of beauty, that lies in continuity.

 

 

 

Pain can be a reminder of living.

Why It’s Whole to Hurt

 

I pray for the sting to flourish,

so that I may know my heart beats.

I plead  my eyes cloud in anguish,

so that I may know my soul breaths.

 

I desire all this pain as it’s

the memory that you were once here.

Love brings light.

Please, save me.

Love me long and fast,

before I fall back into

the storm of my past.

The villanelle voices loss…

I stand alone on the midnight pasture

 I stand alone on the midnight pasture,    

 Chocking on dry tears that make me a mime;

Searching for the face that gives me rapture.

 

 The moon must give the heart it has captured.

  Where my love’s floating voice mingles and chimes.

 I stand alone on the midnight pasture.

Before my soul was in a deep fracture,

 My love’s open eyes gleamed silver as a dime,

 Searching for the face that gives me rapture.

 

The hand of Death is a poignant catcher.

 I am nowhere near the brink of our prime.

 I stand alone on the midnight pasture.

 

I stand waiting, dark and feeble in stature,

 Desperate to move past the ache of time,

 Searching for the face that gives me rapture.

 

 I will not love as once in your capture.

 My hollow heart will not be healed with rhyme.

 I stand lonely on the midnight pasture,

 Searching for the face that gives me rapture.

Haikus are quick, life is even faster

Life crosses the sky
and runs away speedily
just before we die.
