So honestly, I suck at writing poetry. Most of my poems are freeverse. And most of them are som sort of response to some happening or occurrence in my own life or around me. But seriously, I suck at poetry. And I rarely write it, which means this isn't going to be the most active thread. I suppose I'll post each one as a separate post. So here goes... ---- Nocturnal Love Even though the sun has just begun to set, I can see a thousand stars twinkle in your eyes. Your smile mimics the crescent shape of the waning moon. Like the night wind, you flitter through time and space, never once stopping in one place for long. As darkness grows, so does your light. I touch your cheek. You lower your face into my palm. I can't stop a shiver. Too soon the sun will break free of its sleep, and like the night, you'll be gone again. And I will once again be alone. -=-=-=-=- I don't remember now why I wrote this. I know it was for my sister... I think. Anyway, this one of my crappy ideations on love.
