ix. the deep end of the pool is magical

i sucked in a deep breath
and dove into the deep end of the pool
where no one but the experienced swam.
the water engulfed me in its warmth,
spreading invisible goosebumps up my arms.
i stayed still as the water did its magic
and brought me up to the surface.
science, i know, but i like to think of it as magic.
i rolled around on the surface,
back, front, back, front, back, front
and eventually i reached the other end – the shallow end.
when my feet touched the pool floor, i flinched
at the coldness of it. i liked it better when
i didn’t have to experience the coldness
of the world, and i could experience magic,
and fly like a free bird.

x. sunset

caramilk, kit-kat,
tootsie roll, lindor, reese, eggs,
snickers, smarties, s'mores.


Spoiler! :
Dedicated to @Butterfly7 and @LavaBlossom
Spoiler! :
The title's name is sunset and the poem is chocolate. Yes. I know.

Also, @alliyah, I promise the eggs part has nothing to do with classified. I meant those mini eggs. But eggs could only fit into the haiku. >.< You are a fellow poet, dear friend, you must understand.

Oh and, thank you so much @Awru and @Hkumar. <3 It means a lot to me. :)

Spoiler! :
Co-wrote this with @minigem26 when I couldn't find any inspo. :p It's also on her thread, here! :)


My Lonesome Jubilee

We are dancing in
silence, gliding over the marble floor
in unison, you and I.
You're as delicate as a flower but
trust me,
I'll make sure you're never hurt
not one scratch,
not one wrong word will make you fall.
Just dance with me in this silence,
glide in these marble halls
and if I forget you, I'll be peakish.
So please don't let me
let you go.
I'll dance with you for eternity
because I am you
and you are me
and we'll live happily ever after
hand in hand,
our feet gliding purposefully
in these silent marble halls
on the beach but not touching
the sand.

Spoiler! :
Context: this did not come from reality. ;-; I saw a short movie and went ahead and turned it into a poem.


xi. companion

her eyes twinkle,
like bright stars
in the darkness,
when she laughs.
i think it sounds
like soft bells chiming.
but then my gaze shifts
and it lands on the other boy
who had made her laugh.
so i slump
and leave the park
knowing i'll never, ever,
find a companion of my own.

xii. mi hija preciosa

i saw your little eyes
for the first time -
they were closed.
and your fists were clenched
in small, tight balls.
your toes were curled.
and when you opened your eyes -
those little brown orbs -
made me want to melt.

now you're a big girl,
sleeping on the couch
right beside me
as i write this poem for you.
these will be the last words
from me to you.
so i hope you cherish them
as much as i cherish you,
*mi hija preciosa


*'mi hija preciosa' is Spanish for 'my precious daughter'


Spoiler! :
Thanks to @kaenexion for helping out with the last line!

Spoiler! :
I... I dunno... I just. Yeah I dunno what this is but I thought it would be funny if I did a sort of conversation thing between nature and God?


xiii. rock, God, earth


rock
listen, God.
why did you bother to create me
if i had no purpose on Earth?
people kick me around.
they throw me at innocent people.
and i just don't get why -

God
Everything Has A Meaning,
Dear Rock.
Understand That.


earth
so the rock silenced itself
because if God himself had told him
that everything had a meaning,
then surely,
a petty rock like it had meaning.


rock
Earth,
you silenced me.
and i'm not petty.
i did not mean to be silenced.
now, God, lookie here -

earth
shut up.


rock
hey!

xv. she turned me into tin

she cursed me, she did.
turned me into tin.
just because i had fallen in love
with someone else.

she took away my heart
and because of it,
i'm known as
The Heartless Tinman.

i'm stuck in the woods.
left to rust.
left to rot.
left to mourn about my state.

but i know that one day,
someone will come to save me.
they'll pour oil into my metallic joints
and set me free.

and that someone will grant me
a heart of my own so that i can
love once again and so that i can
feel alive once again.

Congratulations Liberty!! You did it! <3 (also can I say, PERFECT concluding gif choice!) I really enjoy how diverse your themes and subjects were, and I loved the little author's notes you included on some of these about your inspo. :) In this last set I particularly enjoyed "the deep end of the pool is magical" it sounds very innocent and wonder-filled, and I liked the voice and formatting you've chosen for in. :) Well done Lib!
maybe i make up colors for poetic cadence, but i don't think i can ever love someone who doesn't understand that teal is a different color than dark cyan
