Lost

Posted in Poems, Writing Prompts with tags , , , , , , , , , , on November 24, 2016 by rachelcipriano

All the wooden boards creak
naturally as I wander
in the dusty room at the peak.
Tonight until later
everytime—I have stayed
believing I wasn’t just a trade.

Writing prompt No. 16 from CWN: Write a poem about something or someone you lost.

Autumn

This was warmth’s farewell,
the spray of cold rain,
and Thanksgiving while the leaves fell.
We tasted of love in a drunken spell.
But I knew your heart so well,
a migrant wherein nothing can dwell.

The four angels belted out
a park slide song.
Y’think people would be bustling about,
sweltering under the sun.
But thought the ‘massah king was the key
to blackey killing whitey.
So he sent his family
to a helter-skelter offing spree.

Spring

The bloom of snowdrops beckon
the rebirth of a fallen bird.
Into a hare scampering, on
verdant horizon.
The footprints of the vernal goddess
thaw puddles.
The land abloom—and dressed
in the fickle drizzle’s caress.

Winter

The bleak land lies
as both witness and executioner
while the guiltless condemned dies.
The piercing wind
stabs human porcelains—lost
foraging a forest of hoarfrost.
This is the annihilation in ’32 to ’33
that everyone is too blind to see.

Halloween

Sauntering through this forest of towers, casually crossing paths with people grinning with their teeth. Wiry hands and bony legs bewitch you. Ghoulish hallowed figures of the night. In this land you’ll never find the afflicted. Piercing misery is hidden by enchanting costumes. I shiver, finding I wear the same mask.

Writing prompt by Rayna Halloway: use the words afflicted, shiver, pierce, teeth, hallowed

Red

I crave for the lips with a taste of cherry,
when my body feels the blazing shade of the enraged.
In this sweet ferocity,
I will be your lover.
Draped in cochineal,
watch me aflame.
I will not bleed,
and roses shall be my breath.
