Message from Writer

While you're here, would you mind reviewing one of my pieces of tra- I mean poems?
"When despair reigns, a single hope is carried on white wings!"
-NO. 39: Utopia
Cinco de Mayo is on Tuesday
Only you can prevent burnt marshmallows, so turn the biscuit world upside down!
Spinal meningitis got me down
That was your mind expert, I believe?

Within These Walls

FREE WRITING

Within these walls,
I build my own.
Within those walls I hide.
Within these walls
That aren't my home
(Though this I don't confide,)
Each brick a secret,
All its own.
The mortar a paste of lies.
I call for help,
Though I've no phone,
Someone throw me a line.

Foolproof

FREE WRITING

I want to be
Foolproof, can't fail
Bulletproof, assailed
Deep thought, prevail
But I'm helpless, what would victory entail?
I want to be
Righteous, in the clear
Hero, no fear
Some plan, so near
But no matter what, a punch-line is how I appear

Fighting

FREE WRITING

Keep you in the dark you know they all pretend
Keep you in the dark and so it all began
All my life I've been searching for something
Something never comes, never leads to nothing
Nothing satisfies but I'm getting close
Closer to the prize at the end of the rope
Give me some rope I'm coming through
I'm hanging on you
Give me some rope I'm coming
Out of my head
Into the clear when you
Go
I
Come... ...

I Am Skyler

FREE WRITING

I am from Giuoco Piano and Mezzo Forte.
​From necklaces and rings away from watchful eyes
From "It's too early to know" and "It's been too long to pass"
I am from the bipolar town
From the middle ground.  
I am from "Who's on First" and "What's the Use of Feeling Blue?"
From "How did you do it?" and "Why are you like this?"
I am from never denying, but trusting nobody fully
From having to learn from failure,...

A Song in Swing Time

FREE WRITING

A song in swing time!
You and I had shared
Both of us in harmony
Rest of the playground bare.
A song from our favorite show
The song I now can't bear:
Looking back, I wish that I
Could say that it was fair.
If I could turn all the clocks,
I'd keep us under key and lock.
And like the song we sung, it's true,
"I could learn to love like you."
A song in swing time!
Another love...

Walking

FREE WRITING

All I could feel was myself
Tearing
   Into
     Pieces
       And
          Walking
It felt as if the world was ending, but at the same time
It was lovely.
I could feel the end in sight.
I could almost remember my own death.
A rush of vertigo flies into me
Penetrating my very being
Like I’ve wanted you to do so many times
I just wish you could get into my mind instead
Addiction.
I’m addicted to you ...

Endgame

FREE WRITING

It's the comfort I find in my games.
A wooden piece can't look at you with the same disbelief
As a person can when you make a mistake.
It can't look at you with horror when you blunder your queen.
1. d4 d5 2. c4
The Queen's Gambit may change in analysis and ideas
But those first three moves remain.
Check may be a threat of checkmate, but even in the end
The two monarchs shake hands in agreement of...

I Will Keep Watch (Oath of Dawn) (New footnote!)

FREE WRITING

For the unforgiven, I will keep watch
For the unloved,  I will keep watch
For the misunderstood, I will keep watch
For the misapprehended, I will keep watch
For the forgotten, I will keep watch
For hopes and dreams, I will keep watch
For the stars afraid to shine, I will keep watch
For the hope that one day, even if for but a split second, we will all know true freedom and happiness
I will keep watch.

I Think I Left my Binder on the Bus (Morale)

FREE WRITING

"I think I left my binder on the bus,"
A secret code you might not understand.
To those in my choir, it means our ideas were bust.
Morale is low, the outlook bleak, what moves can we plan?
"I think I left my binder on the bus."
"Morale!" I'd cry, to try and comprehend
But the morale is gone
I'll try to move on
But with everything I've done, to what end?
