A Poem [Jul. 22nd, 2007|02:13 pm]
[Creative Writing, Photography and Artwork]


[Mood |contemplativecontemplative]
[Music |The intro music to Pirates of the Caribbean]

Yeah, I can't remember the last time I wrote a poem that didn't sound like I wanted to slit my writs, which obviously I wouldn't want to share since it would give the impression of depression, from which I do not suffer. My writing is often melancholic for reasons that elude even me. It's always sort of just lingering.

This one's about this past weekend I guess.

Step, step, to the beat of a drum
Following two and leading one
Play, play for the joy of the crowd
Smile to hear joy voiced aloud.
March; march, for you told me to
And if once said, you told me true.
Speak, speak; let me hear that voice
That which stole the path of choice
Lead, lead, I’ll put no foot astray
Transport me back into that day
I traced your steps, an intricate dance
Everything, nothing to do with chance.
Please turn not away from me
Head one selfish, quiet plea:
Venture far if such is fate,
But return here, ‘ere the hour’s late.

Claire, I adore your poetry. I love the repetition within the stanzas...it mimicks the beat of the drum as stated in the first line. I LOVE! Keep writing!!!

thanks :) you know I really like the repetition, which isn't something I usually play with. The second couplet is my favorite.
