Places To Put Me sonnet poems

Photo by Lel4nd

If you could keep my time in a glass jar
And hidden in plain sight for all to see
They would see a soul that longs to run far
Or a heart that stands strong but wants to flee.

If you could pack me in a cigarette
Would you let me burn out without a new
Light or blow me away; finally let
Me show you everything meant for you

So please put me in an ornate box
With encrusted jewels and gold-rimmed edges
A fine thing that your kiss unlocks
A kiss that lasts memories for ages.

I’ve wandered but found you; my horizon.
Never reached though I will walk on and on.

The Orchestra And Me

The Orchestra And Me prose poem

I had a dream last night. It was very concise but interesting. Rather revelatory, but not prophetic in the usual way. There was a class with a facilitator encouraging input based on a lesson plan provided to the class. I,

Chase Me

Chase Me short poem

Voltage charges power lines’ high wires All honest men die liers Her electric current runs tight by pliers My fires burn, they breathe, ash, and smoke Held so tightly I couldn’t help it my hand broke Shattered into a million
