NaPoWriMo, Day 4: A Poem About Love

I don’t know it like I want to.
I don’t know wordless glances filled with meaning
Or lips meeting in perfect trust.
I know what I wish I had.
I just don’t know how to get there.


NaPoWriMo, Day 3: A Poem of Fourteen

I’d like to think I’m interesting and reliable.
Mostly I am just reliably uninteresting.


NaPoWriMo, Day 2: A Poem About the Stars

The most beautiful idea about the stars I have ever heard
Comes from A Wrinkle in Time.
Stars are alive and have thoughts and choices.
And when a cold and wicked darkness threatens to cover the universe,
Stars can choose to die.
They can go supernova and let their light shine its last and brightest,
To defeat just a piece of the black.
It’s a lonely and amazing and wondrous idea
To think that so many heavenly beings would give up everything…
To give the rest of us time to do something.


NaPoWriMo, Day 1: A Poem of Negation

I am not many things.
I’m maybe one or two.
Unless you count the bad things.
Of those, I’m quite a few.
