snow

in Hawaii(I can dream, right?)

enrobed in silence

she was invisible

no one of importance

not really, at least

 

but in her memories,

she was so much more

she could see thrones of gold

and crowns of silver

she could see melodies written in stardust

and harmonies glimmering above

 

 

but those were just memories

ones that had a tendency to slip her mind

to burrow underneath images of pain 

and sorrow

 

the memories melted like snow, 

dropping out of reach

 

but oh, the snow

she could almost see it clearly 

it blanketed the ground,

and she was so close to the place that once was home

the brown throne

from which she had been cast, 

unwanted

and unneeded

so close she could almost reach out

and touch it

it wisped through her mind,

like a far off dream

 

funny, 

how only memories reminded her 

of happiness

 

she loved the wintertime

she was closet to home

she called it a middle place

a place between birth and death

between light and dark

one that would give way to summer

and her emptiness would return

of course,

no one listened

 

a foot into the powder

and then another

snow wrapping around her ankles;

like twigs of birch branches;

albino skin disappearing into the cold

icy cuffs

that held her mind

her heart

her soul

captive; releasing the rest of her body

her pale skin

eyes

hair

releasing it to move on 

alone

 

releasing it to the cruelty of the earth

 

the empty body moved on

fed it’s blood to the streams, 

to the dry parts of the earth 

feeding it what needed it more

than the empty body did

staining the snow crimson

 

scars

like strings to a chain

back to the silver knife

like strings to a chain

knife to her throat

like strings to her chain

her throat fed blood

to crimson leaves

to thirsty soil

 

 

 

the crops grew that year

but the corn was darker 

the cabbage riper

stained with another’s blood

 

it snowed that year

cold flakes from tears

mingling with ashes 

from a girl

 

alabaster skin

burns white

in the summer heat

and piles of ashes

float away

like

 

 

empty

 

 

 

 

promises

 

 

 

 

of snow

I wish I was good at poetry

I wish I was good at poetry like you. I have this poem due tomorrow and I still haven't started. I don't know how to start it, any tips on how I can make it easier?

I like to read other poems

I like to read other poems or come up with poetic phrases to start. Looking outside helps as well. You can also just try to write you r feelings down on paper or your odd, out of place thoughts. Thanks for the compliment! Good luck!

 

 

 

Do you know what Angelica said, when she read what you'd done? She said: "You've married and Icarus. He's flown to close to the sun."
