To That Shady Girl

Standard

There we stood: Face to face on that date

Ready to launch attack in this debate.

I had my pros while you felt your cons.

We both tied poems to the facts we lit,

And to catch fire to the words you spit,

You pulled from quotes with power but no relevance,

And so I looked poorly towards your deliverance.

You see, from my mouth flows words not stolen from another

And from that alone you should call me mother-

Goose.

For, when its needed, I can catch a rhyme

And call my quote all mine every time.

Love is love

Standard

Love is love
Even when its not.
When its burning past your
Depth of perception
Or past your limit of right and wrong.
Love makes the whole of everything.
Even if it makes your blood boil
And your skin hot.
Especially when it makes you bold
And relentless.
Even if the eyes of those around you
Mark it as forbidden.

Author’s note: this came from the beginning of a line I wrote today in English class, that poem is original, but the thought that it comes from showed up a lot in our reading.

Wilted roses

Standard

You sit and watch the petals droop
Day by day without explanation
You let the stems sag
And the water turn dark shades
Motionlessly you sit
Your breath shaking the fragile
Remains of what was once
A beautiful banquet
Or bright reds and pinks
To stop an ask you why
Would break the mystics
That join you, the flowers, and I
So I just watch you age
As the flowers do
For you are my wilting rose
