Mankind’s Story

Here's yet another poem about darkness/evil/hate/etc. I promise I'm actually I very cheerful and bright person, and not a borderline depressed girl. It's just that when I think about darkness, I get moody; when I get moody, I write poems. And when I write poems, I share them with y'all! 😀 But in reality, although I think…

Sometimes (A Freeverse Poem)

Hey, all! This is a poem I wrote when I really wanted to be able to put my thoughts and feelings into a visual form, but I was greatly hindered by my artistic ineptitude. Put simply, I was sad (about something, I don't remember what now), I wanted to get the emotions out in a…

Saturday Ponderings (Poem)

Ah, sabbaths! My favourite part of the week. Resting, thinking, eating, enjoying all my blessings... My cat is named Suki, but she has a million nicknames. Sukkah (pronounced SOO-kah), dahblaise (a corrupted form of "darling"), lefty, Captain Muscles, Duchess, Goof.... the list goes on. She's a real sweetie. Even though we disagree on some things…

Dystopic Poetic

So, I'm kind of obsessed with dystopian novels. I think they're just about the coolest concept ever, and super fun to read. Also, I just learned that the film Ready Player One is coming out, and I thought this would be an appropriate time to share this poem (although I haven't read much of Ready Player One, and I…

Under the Arbor

Hey, all! I wrote this poem while sitting and relaxing under some trees yesterday. All my poems about nature end up focusing on trees and the sky, because those are my favourite things to watch. I love the way the colours play against each other. Anyway, hope you enjoy. If you'd like to read more…

Melancholy Sunset Poem

This is something I wrote when I had a minor-key Franz Schubert waltz stuck in my head, and when I was driving in the country as the sun set. I pretended I was in a music video. Enjoy. Sun shrinks from the sky; Night crowds overhead. Shadows catch the eye; Sunbeams far have fled. Lord,…

Ode to an Alarm Clock

This, like many of my poems, was inspired by real-life events, for better or for worse. Enjoy this lighthearted poem, and see if you can relate. 😀 At seven o’clock this weary morning, My alarm clock started beeping. And my bleary eyes were taken from The respite they were keeping. I heard the noise, but…

Skhizien – a Poem

My brother wanted me to write something "dark, brooding, and a little creepy," so I dashed fof this poem for him. I think he wanted to see if I could write anything legitimately unhappy. After reading this, he told me, "Um, this is a little bit darker than I meant." I disagree. This isn't that…

Love Poem to Sprinkles

I know I'm not the only one out there who totally adores rainbow sprinkles. I mean, they're literally edible color-glamour that you can put on anything to make it at least twice as good. I mean, look at this glory: Don't you want to pop one in your mouth? It's not that sprinkles taste like anything (actually,…

Forgetting a Dream

This poem was inspired by how often I've been frustrated by forgetting great dreams I've had in the night. Enjoy! I sleep, a dream floats o’er my head, Bedazzled with a dozen shifting hues, A hundred scenes and points of view, Swirling just above my bed. Opaque and colourful, shining bright, The dream is oh-so-gently…
