A Poem

I never write poetry. My mom and my brother are really good poets but I just wasn’t blessed with that talent. However, I recently wrote a poem for my brother and I didn’t hate it so I thought I would share it with you. Do you like to write poems?tumblr_mpc5eht1OB1ru6nd4o1_1280


rocking in his wooden boat

treading water

barely afloat

dashes of hope


eyes sparkling as he glides

currents change

no where to hide


fishes for love

throws them all back

hand in glove

heart attack


sees the moon as a bowl of milk

drinks it down

feels the guilt


swaying gently with the waves


final daze


how did he get off course?

wasting hours

tour de force


the wind slowly chaps his skin

shivers at night

just let him win.

    • Ya never know, Michael. A poem might strike a chord with you if you give it the chance. But I know what you mean. I don’t mind reading poems because they usually don’t take that much time out of my day haha. But I’ll stick to Lush reviews for you.

    • Kind of. Well, I’ve written poems in the past and they’re pretty bad. I have this urge to make everything rhyme even though it’s not necessary. But I’m gonna keep trying and maybe I’ll get more confident. Thanks Guap!

  1. For never writing poetry, you’ve certainly done an incredible job! Love the “moon as a bowl of milk, drinks it down…”

    Genius! And lovely. Thanks for sharing, Lily..

    • Thanks so much Brigitte! I’m glad you liked it! I’ll try writing more and post the pieces I’m most proud of haha. I’m sure there will be many stanzas hidden away in my notebook.
      Thanks for your kind words 🙂

    • Haha yeah writing poetry is one of those things that is so hard but people make it look really easy.
      Rap songs are a type of poetry in my book! I think that would be cool!

    • Oh wow thanks Harry, that sounds great. I’m very flattered. Go right ahead.

      No worries about the comments, by the way. I think it’s been a long time since I’ve been over to yours too. I think we’re even 😉
