If I Could Travel Through Time

Inspired by today’s Daily Prompt:

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/07/19/daily-prompt-sneaky/

If I could travel through time
And nobody could see
Would I try and fix the world
Or would I just be me?

If I could travel through time
And nobody could see
Would I stay in one place
Or would I set myself free?

If I could travel through time
And nobody could see,
I would write poems with Mrs. Dickinson
And with Mozart compose unseen.

If I could travel through time
And nobody could see,
Would my travelings wreck the world
Or would we all be more happy?

So, if I could travel through time
And nobody could see,
I would not travel at all,
And instead just be me.

Star To Planet

Hold me

To the earth

Star to planet

One weekend

Fragile mind

Cry

 

Missing you

Gray skies

Silent tears

Like rain

From the

Overcast sky

 

Few miles

Great distance

Oceans away

Why do I

Miss you

Why

 

Nostalgia

Like waves

Over me

Dreaming, crumbling

Screaming into darkness

I try

Little Seed

My faith is but a little seed

Seed though it may be

It will always be there to comfort me.

 

My faith is but a little seed

It is there for me in times of need

And if I care for it, it will be as a tiny tree.

 

My faith is now a tiny tree

I care for it, it cares for me

By studying and listening and serving, it will be as a mighty tree.

 

My faith is now a mighty tree

It carries me and sets me free

I believe the things I hear and see

My faith is now a mighty tree.

To Remember You

If I were

To talk in my sleep

Would I say

How I need you?

If I were

To speak crazily

Would it be poetry for you?

Because the only time I want to mention you

Is when I’m so in love

That I turn crazy

And that’s how I wish

To remember you.

 

If I were

To dance in the rain

Would I dance with you?

If I were

To sing a pretty song

Would it be about you?

Because the only time I want to mention you

Is when I’m so in love

I want to sing

And that’s how I wish

To remember you.

 

I never want to leave this state

I never want to feel the pain

I never want my heart to break

I just want to go insane with you

I just wanna sing for you.

 

Because the only time I want to mention you

Is when my love is burning bright

And I forget to put up a fight

And that’s how I wish

To remember

You

My Books, My Words & Things

My things
Leapt off their shelves
To be there for me
When I met you,
For they knew I’d never be the same.

My books
Changed their heroes’ names
To yours
So that I could be closer to you
For they knew I would never be the same.

My words
Wrapped my mind
In love
And made it so I could not sleep
For they knew I would never be the same.

For I would never, never, never be the same.

Beauty & The Beast

I love the fairytale “Beauty & The Beast”. So, I decided to write about it in this poem. It’s a duet of sorts between the Beast and Beauty.

I thought you were ugly
Thought you were horrendous
Thought you were terrifying
What a fool I was!

Inside was a heart
Good and true and pure
You gave me this heart
And even more

I’m sorry I never realized
How much I feel for you
Now you’re gone
And I am feeling blue

I love you!

My darling, you broke the spell
That kept me here this way
Your words of love freed me
And I am here to stay

Ten long years I waited for you
And you found me
It’s like you are the sun after a dark night
And I can finally see

My princess,
Will you be my bride
And stay forever
By my side?

And All The World a Dream

This is a poem based on my favorite chapter in the fourth book of the Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini: “And All the World a Dream”.

Slipping away,
Dream after dream
Horror after horror
Thing after thing.

Then my mind is filled with peace
A vineyard, green and bright
You are mine, we are in love
And I give up the fight.

But it is not to be, my dear
For all this world is but a dream
It is swept away with the knife in your side
And you cannot hear my screams.

I feel your presence in my mind
As I laugh at fate, laugh at fear
Defeating foe on foe
For I know that you are near.
