TO MAKE MY WORLD BETTER

Another joint post!  I had a hard time with this one because I felt like adding anything would take away from the beauty of his poem.  Well so I guess this is two poems for the price of one!  Hope you enjoy!

by Brainsnorts and HastyWords.

Curse the glass

Of the clock, preventing me from turning back time

Of the window, stopping me from tasting nature’s breezes

Of the door, separating me from the wondrous library books

Of the bottle, bringing me the poisons that I drink

Of the broken edges, ripping me open, skin and soul

Of the picture frame, blocking me from reaching your face

Curse the glass, but don’t curse me

Just because I want to break it

Only to make my world better

Not yours.  Mine.

Curse the words

In the letter, preventing me from taking back time

In the imagery, stopping me from conveying your beauty

In the creativity, separating me from the love you hold

In the misery, poisoning the writing that I scribble

In the sadness, ripping me open, skin and soul

Of the poem, blocking me from reaching your heart

Curse the words, but don’t curse me

Just because I want to write them

Only to make my world better

Not yours. Mine.

  1. I like this very much… Rich is modest about his own work… but I can’t tell where one stops and the other continues… they are two chapters to the same idea… and the both work very well…
