Ode to a PromiseOde to a PromiseA small circular object that holds aPromise.Small, metal,And then is replaced by another when the time's right.The value of a ring,No matter how little,No matter the cost,Does not symbolize the true value behind it.A small circle that holds on tightAround your finger,Cold and metal when placed on the counter,Nice and warm when placed on the skin.The ring that holds onIs like a pair of warm armsAround your heart.A promise ring that holds an unbreakablePromiseLike a special true pinky promiseThe small symbol,Of showing the commitment you'll soon shareWith the one you love.
Rain - List PoemRain List poemDrip, dropThe rain falls downOn unexpected faces.Drip, dropCold and dampDark colored skies and over hanging cloudsRain falls down into a puddle rejoining friends.Hooded faces,Umbrella covered childrenHiding away from rainAs if it were a harmful enemy.Unknowing that rain brings nourishmentTo thirsty plantsTo thirsty peopleTo be bottled up for later,To be later consumed.Sky tears covered facesSmall jumping rain bootsLight kisses exchangedIn the presence of rain.Sad sky?Or sky giving moisture.Once fallen and driedMay not return for long termsSad sky tears taken off the groundDried from clothes and carsThis is the life of rainDripDrop
The Mask ~ A SonnetThe Mask Sonnet 26White rose petals fall down on red satin sheets aloneQuiet footsteps down the hall leading you awayDangerous feelings leading to the unknownAre we different? My worlds color has gone grey,Sway from the world and let go of our breathIntimately close to danger, why can't I go?Tempting to go, I'm not so scared of deathBut I am not reckless; I'm free like snow
Falling free without a care, what a lieHiding behind a mask cause I'm afraidBut with him, it's gone and away, I'm not shyNow that I am aware I shall never fadeGetting through the day I know now I'm strong,Cause now I know that I never truly was wrong.
