water love

i took a breath of the crisp morning air
i was scared of losing myself

let the waves whisper gently over my feet
you coaxed me in

i tried not to hesitate and jumped right in
i was still scared but i jumped in with you

surface tension breaks as i hit the crest of the waves
any tension between us lasted only a single second

shattering the water into a million droplets
we forgot any hesitations

water caresses my slightly battered body
you comforted me always

silence under the waves
you listened to everything and so did I

slowly sinking into darker water
our love grew deeper

how is under the crashing waves this calm?
you looked so different on the surface

all i know is i never want to leave the only calm i've found
but know i now that we are perfect

is there such a thing as too perfect?


Spoiler! :
I'm trying to format but nope. It was meant to be able to read a two separate poems with the second one being a deeper interpretation of the first.

there was one time i laughed upside down and it rained gummy bears

books make great hats
especially with cheesy fish bowls
i love to eat red clouds
dancing is best done when it's snowing chocolate
or if i love coolers
there was one time i drove to the moon
and met a sloth eating pizza
green bread sounds orange
with pink receipts yelling sticky notes
blue erasers are rock soft
with my eyes smelling the taste of mail
water bottles say oink and smell of calculators
aren't space rivers fun?
making spaghetti shirts
are great with boiled curtains
and a side of fried computer bananas
or what if there was a book about pickles
who like to eat homework and make pencils out of wet chalk
i heard glasses are made of headphones sometimes
and maybe they added daisies to newspaper articles
shoelaces make great walls
and are handy for cleaning dirt
but what if comets were singing fire
when they jump into bricks?
pizza rockets are the best shoes
and i think those trees are made of words
it's a new species they call poe tree

cloud pictures

i remember that time
when we were relishing those summer days together
i was six and you were eleven
me just starting my school journey
and you just leaving for the next school up
but those precious early summer days
where we had nothing better to do
than lie on the grass and make pictures in the clouds
eating popsicles and grass-staining our dresses

"that one looks like a horse!"
i would point
but then it would change in the wind
and you would say that it looked more like a bugler
standing atop a cloud declaring some royal announcement
then i would playfully argue that that was not right
it looked more like a fish blowing bubbles

as the wind disintegreated the old cloud
blowing it to whisps behind the trees
we would pick a new cloud
and play the game again
until hunger drove us into the house for lunch

my favorite parts were when the moon became a part of a picture
like the water drop a mermaid made
or a slice of cheese an ogre reached for
there was also the time when airplanes drew clouds across the sky
and made staffs for wizards
and jump ropes for dryads

but now that you're fourteen and i'm nine
you left me alone in the grass
to instead pursue makeup and popularity
and maybe a boyfriend even though mom wouldn't allow it
i'm stuck as a child with my dreams of fantasy
and you try to be 'grown-up'
but all i want to do with you once more
is make some pictures out of clouds

fairy path

i love to explore the woods behind my house
and search for mystical creatures i hope live there
one day as the sun was setting
i found a path through the woods
glowing of small warm lights
in the midst of the cool blue snow
and the white-blue fog hugging me
the whole forest seeming more magical
with every step i took along that glowing path
i felt as if fantasy creatures were luring me onwards
maybe they wanted me to find them at last
but i came to the end of the path to find a cliff
maybe i have to wait until i can grow my wings
and fly to their land
but for now
i will remember that journey
and wish for another path

rays through the clouds

i love to look at the clouds
as the sunlight reaches through them
the hand of God in light rays
reaching towards to cold Earth
and warming it from its cold Winter cage
and setting the birds singing again

paper boats

i love watching the little paper boats
floating on the rippling water
a sprinkling of color
in the green and blue pond

pushing it gently into the water
a grand maiden voyage
and then water gets in
and sinks a soon soggy boat

again i go
a new little boat
a little pink piece of paper
a breeze blowing across the water

now there's an army
of little colorful boats
the breeze playing with them
and sinking a select few

idea city

my head is like the streets of a bustling city
smack dab in the middle of the day
whoosh
zoom
honk honk

bustling with thoughts and ideas
feelings and emotions
running around the city in my head

it's becoming to crowded
all those ideas
no place to go
but in circles

no one listens to my ideas
so i had to find another way
to direct them out of my head

i pick up my pencil
a bridge for those ideas onto paper
and write
my ideas flowing out
until
all
is
quiet

I like #17 - such a lovely, clear image of all these boats drifting and sinking on the water :)

void

i'm falling in a void,
a black hole in my mind.
i don't know what happened
but no,
i am not okay.

i've lost my normal self,
the one that smiles at the little things.
now i'm stuck here,
a hormonal teenager
who doesn't know what to do.

my mom always asks me,
'are you okay?'
but how do you tell her
that when you go to sleep at night
you hope that you won't wake up?

i am so cared for,
so loved and valued,
but my mind forgets this
and i'm thrown in this void
where no,
i am not okay.

universe

i've got a universe inside my mind
which i can make into a star-studded pencil
and tranfer the universe to paper
or sometimes i let the stars tickle my fingers
and paint them on the keyboard
and make some constellations on the screen

the universe is always in motion
thoughts and ideas making it spin
not always plesant
but always spinning
ideas never stopping
but some are dismissed or pulled in closer
a select few pulled in towards the center
the ones that i want to make tangible stories

there's sometimes i wish i could switch off the spinning
just for a little bit
i can't ever focus on a single thing
these ideas are too much
i can't get them down fast enough
but maybe some are just for me
but kindergarten taught me to share
so it's hard to keep them inside
but there's too many ideas
for one little mind

not everyone has such an expansive universe
i know i should be grateful
and cherish it by writing them down for others to enjoy
but sometimes i wish it wasn't so big
ideas flying around like comets
but i still love every single comet
i do hide certain ones away just for me
but these stories only i can write
so i guess i'll never read that story
if i don't write that comet down

How do you come up with such clever ideas? I'm behind on my NaPo due to lack of a creative mind. But your here, with fantastic poem after fantastic poem.

brainshelf

my brain is a bookshelf
memories stacked up high
jokes i've learned scattered about
english and math and science and history
a thick book or two of each

sometimes i lose a few old pages
mostly of little memories from when i was young
i guess the books have to get thinner
if i want room for more

but what happens to those loose pages?
maybe they're hoarded in a box
folded up neatly
but hard to find again

i love sitting in that small library
comforted by the familiar biblichor
flipping open random books
the thin ones are the best
becuase they are filled with little things
like the baby soft leaves
of the little sun-yellow butter cups
and the sweet scent they emanate
to the bright blue paint samples
that i almost painted my walls

i wish i could hoard all the pages of those books
the memories and useless knowledge
but the new things to remember
will be just as sweet
the new book scent mixing with the old
most of the books just as wonderful and the last
the books on the shelf in my mind

Also, biblichor is a fairly new word that means the smell of old books c:

beneath this tree

i want to grow old with you
beneath this tree
under which we meet
as small children
bright balloons your gift to me
silly childish games our friendship link

i want to grow old with you
beneath this tree
bigger than when we first met
now as teenagers
a newly found love
floating gently between us

i want to grow old with you
beneath this tree
an adult like us
our love grown past a simple crush
complete infatuation in our eyes
marriage bonding us

i've grown old with you
beneath this tree
nothing's changed
except our age
our love is still just as strong
even if we have canes now

i've grown old with you
beneath this tree
that's slowly dying
at the sight of your grave
and now i am going to lay here beside you
death will not do us part

we've grown old together
beneath this dead tree
it has died with us
but we are beyond the grave
starting again in heaven
still right next to each other
beneath a tree

i love the rain

when it rains
cool droplets sliding down the window
an early summer breeze dancing with the water
i love to go outside
no umbrella or rain coat
no socks or shoes to cover my feet
i love the way it pours on my head
running through my hair
down my arms and legs
soaking through my clothes
pooling around my bare feet
i love to dance through the puddles
and tip my head back to receive the drops
right on my face
let nature wash me clean
and water me like a thirsty plant
who has been in the sun too long
oh i love the rain
the warm summer droplets
squeezed from the puffy gray clouds
but as much as i love the rain
i love the sun peeking through the clouds
as the clouds run out of water
and when a rainbow laughs its way across the sky
a marriage of sun and rain
and best of all
as the rain trickles off
i love the way the sun warms my wet face
and dries my hair
in a warm hug of light
but i still look forward to the next rain
when i can be soaked in the little droplets once more
