feelings nestled in ribcages
silent cries inside of a marrow
and the dull thunk of your heart
against my barely beating bones?
or is your poetry nestled in galaxies
shooting across well-kept fingertips
like comets lighting a dull sky
stardust of my hip bone wishes
literature universe coming to an end?
can your poetry play imagination
like a clever twist in a dream
where you kiss my shadows away
and teach me how to caress you
with love that burns passion away?
are you smitten enough to
run away with me
or are you yet to be blanketed
by these heavy arms of mine?
do my words weigh you down?
i havent met one so easily drowned
by the vast sea of my sunkissed letters
but as your velvet lips whispered,
always is there a first.
but this was entirely written using the most cliche terms i could find
aka words that are often used when writing poetry
which is not bad as all
i think it's overused because it sounds really nice
but it's really cool when you stumble upon poetry that either uses these words in a new way, combines them with some other term that just makes you think wow, or just uses new words altogether to bring new imagery to mind.
i dunno dudes
just write what tickles your fancy
Thank you. I used to be quite the cliché-hunter. Every time I read something that rang "too familiar" I avoided it like the plague. And then one day it dawned on me: it's not what you use, it's how you use it. It's taking the mundane, the overused, and turning it into something unique to you.
You have a poem of clichés. And yet it's still its own poem. It stands out, and is beautiful.
Awesome stuff, I'm planning on doing a poem based on the trends/cliches she mentioned as well.
