Don’t Think About It

Her eyes dash about each way

Her lips start to move

STOP

there is nothing to say

 

Her red-gold hair is twisted

Her mind falls back

onto old thoughts

Laughing

STOP

that was before

 

Her spine shivers

Her knees grow weak

STOP

don’t think

 

Her head continues the thought

the future of the past

the past itself

STOP

only despair

 

Her eyes grow wet

Her heart grows cold

STOP

emptiness

 

Her hands tremble

As she darts around

STOP

should it be found?

 

Too late to think

The book is grabbed

Opened to the memories

Her fingers find a pencil

Her hands find paper

She tries to explain

STOP

pain

 

Her arms find her knees

so does her head

Her mind utters the words

that should have been said

STOP

 

There is no time machine

No golden talk to make everything right

Just You

Just Me

and I’m losing the fight

  1. This is a poem I have been working on. My teacher says the rhymes distract from the poem and need to follow a pattern or to just get rid of the rhymes. So I cut out some rhymes but left the ones I really liked- I wasn’t even trying to rhyme the words just flowed. I want your opinions so please post in comments! 🙂
