Things to Think About

Things to Think About

Tonight is a bad night,
Too idle,
Enough to let my thoughts collide
And my heart burn with unsaid fears.
I’m so scared of losing,
But also myself in the roller coaster.
I don’t want to fall back,
Into the people I’ve been.
But my hair grows longer as the days do,
and I can’t help myself but smile,
That good things are coming,
Along with the sunshine. 
In my heart of hearts, 
I wonder if I’m making mistakes.
But in my bones,
I know, the sun is coming.
Sure as laughter,
Splashes of color,
And light.

The Tempest

The Tempest

Finishing a story,
Putting the cover back on a book.
A part of me wants to stay in the adventure forever,
Hold you close and let you comfort me.
The pages flutter,
The notes collect,
And a semester’s worth of love and dreams and hope for a better tomorrow,
Is woven into your pages.
Today I close the chapter,
With a smile.
Today, I am the stuff dreams are made on,
set me free. 

Day 31 (sort of)

Hello, all my lovely readers! Thank you for following my challenge and reading my work. I’ve successfully written a poem a day for all 30 days of April, and I’m super proud. However, I feel like this blog is still growing.

I’ve been debating for a few weeks about what to do after April ends and the challenge is over. I think I saw this continuing past April when I first came up with the idea, but I didn’t want to be too ambitious (being a college student is busy work.) Therefore, I’m going to keep posting poems as much as I can – maybe not daily, but we’ll see. I’m excited to see this grow and myself to grow as a writer. 

Thank you again for following this challenge, and happy reading of poems to come!
