Poem: Please Refrain

(For National Poetry Month I am writing a stream-of-conscious poem per day. Each poem is  a spontaneous poem single edit – could get messy!  Here is Poem #10)

I would ask you at this moment
to join along with me
hold hands if you really want to
and sing along with me

Here is my refrain
I know its all the same
to you in your disdain
seeing how I own the blame
at least in your refrain

I know I have been rejected
you might say ejected
guess I’m kinda defective
when I get reflective

Oops time for that refrain
I see its all the same
to you in your disdain
seeing how I own the blame
at least in your refrain

You said I was distinguished
back when I turned you on
now your feelings are extinguished
so I’d best be moving on

Come on sing that refrain
I know its all the same
to you in your disdain
seeing how I own the blame
at least in your refrain

I’m not as evil as you claim
and no I’m not insane
well other than much to my shame
playing a part in your game

Oh wait there’s that refrain
I know its all the same
to you in your disdain
seeing how I own the blame
at least in your refrain

at this point I’d like to abstain
from any further points
that really cause me lots of pain
I’m sure that disappoints

Cause here is that refrain!
I know its all the same
to you in your disdain
seeing how I own the blame
at least in your refrain

So you go your way I’ll go mine
now isn’t that easy?
Oh look you are back one more time
sounding rather wheezy

As you start that refrain
I know its all the same
to you in your disdain
seeing how I own the blame
at least in your refrain

Keep on singing now!
you can repeat and repeat
until its obsolete
beat on beat on beat

and once again refrain
I know its all the same
to you in your disdain
seeing how I own the blame
at least in your refrain

at least the very least in your refrain.

Poem: Purple Oranges

Trent Lewin made me do it!
here is the answer to the question of what rhymes with orange or purple. Don’t go there is my advice!

a purple turtle
met a purple squirrel
in a purple circle
with a purple startle
together they made a purple chortle
this poem is rather purple hurtful
but what if they found a purple curple?

where is the orange
you ask in outrage?
it can be arranged
first I eat my porridge
then we search for sporange

hence we end
with a purple orange

Poem: Throbbing

pulse
pounding
pulsating

it starts small

pulse
pounding
palpitating

and gets bigger

pulse
pounding
piercing

until you just

pulse
pounding
heightening

can’t take it
anymore.

Poem: Curtailed

(For National Poetry Month I am writing a stream-of-conscious poem per day. Each poem is  a spontaneous poem single edit – could get messy!  Here is Poem #11)

 

expectations of eternity
cut short
by cruel mortal finality
we are
filled with youthful vanity
that we
were exempt from these rules

in the face of each tragedy
we stop
hold near each other anxiously
retrench
rebuild back our inner fallacy
that we
are exempt from these rules

this is what halts our insanity
in a nutshell
by us simply weaving a tapestry
of illusion
living our lives ever forgetfully
that we
are ephemeral and so are these rules.

Poem: Snowdrops

(For National Poetry Month I am writing a stream-of-conscious poem per day. Each poem is  a spontaneous poem single edit – could get messy!  Here is Poem #10)

I am expecting
warm sunny days
turning my fancy into
thoughts of flowers
blooming sweetly

snowday

Today!?

crocuses brilliant
against the browns
buds pushing up
from mud below

instead I awaken
finding snowdrops
swirling from above
covering my dreams
with cold reality

winter has come
to say goodbye.
