Blogging University Writing 201: Poetry Day 6

Day 6: Faces, Found Poetry, Chiasmus

She walks in beauty, like the night
And all that’s best of dark and bright
A glimmer, and then a gleam of light!
Thus mellowed to that tender light

That was all! And yet, through the gloom and the light,
Softly lightens o’er her face;
But lingers and gazes, till full on his sight
Had half impaired the nameless grace

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black
A lover’s embrace dreamy and fey
Lacking nothing, and nothing to lack

Day 5: Map, Ode, Metaphor

Oh, the map!  The wonderful map!  It’s history and future all rolled into one. 

It is every place I’ve ever been and wanted to go. 

It is my life laid out before me, bold with color and textured with dreams. 

Road map, world map, sky map, here, there, and everywhere. 

A map shows me every place I’ve ever been or wanted to go. 

Except the path to your heart.

Day 4: Imperfect, Limerick, Enjambment

A man once declared himself perfect
Vowing he was no feminine reject
Until hiring one day
A woman for pay
And she laughed as she gazed to inspect it

*****

I longed to share a perfect love that

Would last me forevermore, yet I

Have found that there is joy in

The imperfection of our life.

Day 3: Skin, Prose Poem, Internal Rhyme

A dapper wrapper for the heart part, it perspires, inspires, and expires.  It comes in a glowing rainbow of colors, and can’t be bought with dollars. 

But sometimes, if you touch much, you could melt or get a welt, depending on how snug the hug.  It all depends on the skin you’re in and the skin you want to share in.

I Never Dreamt Of

Being On The Silver Screen

Please Don’t Look At Me

Dreaming Of

The memory of your pleasure
Is too close to
The memory of my pain.
I cannot keep them separate in my mind.
Confusion
Fear
Your promise was a lie.

This, my promise, is true:
One day you will know you need me.
I won’t be there.
Because of you,
You sent me away.
Because of me,
I remain that way.

Your father said
“You’ll be sorry if you let her go.”
You said
“It’s just for a little while.”
Your father said
“Nothing is ever ‘just a little while’.”
