Poetry Dump

[I’m breaking up the usual pattern and giving you a poetry dump! Let me know your thoughts in the comment below (: I’m still a newbie to poetry, so I apologise for the pain your eyes are about to go through. . .]

Poem 1: My Dream

I saw a man who stood alone

Away from other people

Though not alone because beside him

Stood four eager horses.

The first was strong and brown and short

I somehow knew his name

He was “Earth” with his mighty mane

And he stomped to confirm my thought.

The second was white- The colour of waves

Her mane was flowy and long

Her motions were light and simple indeed

Though beneath them, I saw the great strength.

The third was another brown horse though with spots

He was young and seemed rather impatient

He pawed at the dust and neighed at the man

I knew him, his name was “Life”.

The final horse stood in a corner

His dark smooth skin flowed black

His eyes bore into my soul

And I quaked at his silent judgement.

I waited to see what the man would do as he slowly took off his hat

With a gentle smile, he reached out his hand

And began to tame the horses.

Earth, he let run free and happy

Though he made sure to give him some Water.

Ocean he barely taught restraint

And handled her completely at ease.

Life he shook his head over sadly before taking his bridle in hand

Carefully he guided Life ‘round the training ground

Gentle, yet firm all the same.

The dark black stallion was left for the last

And I wondered his fate as I stood there.

The man looked the black horse straight in the eye

And commanded him to be still

The black horse froze and his eyes lost their glare

The spirit within sank low

He bird his head the man who had spoken

And the man gave a small smile.

I marvelled this man

His skills and his talent

He’d controlled the four horses with ease.

Earth, Ocean, Life, and evening the darkness-

He has it completely controlled.

Poem 2

You saw me out your window

When I played in the grass.

You saw me run and jump and laugh

While lying on your back.

~

You watched me play with dogs and cats

While hiding in your room,

You saw me fall and scrape myself

When playing by the rocks.

~

You watched me as the summer days

Drifted slowly by,

You never dreamed that summers later

You would make me cry.

~

You saw from me from your sickbed

As I chased the butterflies,

You saw me from your own front porch

When I happened to chance by.

~

The summer of next was beautiful

You and I together,

A decade later we stood by the pond

As you knelt to ask my hand.

~

I was princess with a perfect prince

Standing by the waters,

Everything was picturesque

‘Til you left me holding flowers.

~

The shots were fired and duty called

You left to defend your home,

And I was left alone in the garden

With nowhere left to roam.

Poem 3: I Saw

I saw you dance among the stars

The night after you left.

I didn’t know the rhyme or reason

I just knew what I saw.

I saw you twirl gracefully,

Your skirt billowed wide.

I saw you leap into the skies,

A sparkle in your eyes.

I miss you, Love, I want you back

To you to fill my empty heart

You’re beautiful among the stars

But even more so-

In my arms.
