An Ode To Girlhood

An Ode To Girlhood short poem

Photo by tankgirltai

If these walls could speak they would tell you,
The tale of sweet girlhood
Of wild hair and bright eyes
Heartache and sacred ties
Whispered secrets-too many to tell
A purple wall and a cow bell
Woes and delights in equal measure
Memories that are forever a treasure
And now I return, a girl no more
My books wait for me like before
Sirius rises in the sky
Old diaries make me laugh and cry
In the warmth of my bed I find
That I can leave my worries behind
These walls are a shrine
To a simpler time
If these walls could speak they would tell you,
The tale of sweet girlhood

Ode To A Meteor short poem

They stand stiffly before his milky contrail thought of tittering, a fiction, flying across an evening sky once a giggle mash, now a distant funerary memory. Imagine it, a flounder flopping in deadly malodorous silence. Truth rips at his empty

Fly – Flight – An Ode To Birds

Fly   Flight   An Ode To Birds long poem

Birds levitate and are airborne, Flapping wings soaring to the highest stratosphere, Flying into the blue yonder, Over snowcapped mountains, abutting the clouds, Flying, gliding, landing, so sublime Perching themselves in the tiny gap between other birds on a cable

Come back to me. I yearn your bitter, yet velvety touch. You make me blush, I miss you in my lungs. Come back to me. You fill the void that you re-create, Every time I let you escape, From a

An Ode The The Divine! short poem

You curled, cruised, kicked and got her crazy She enjoyed a cocktail of emotions and images all so fuzzy You slumbered after all wailing and weep She comforted you all night trading her sleep You talked miles and miles She
