I was required to write a ten line poem at the beginning of my senior year, while I started this poem with the full intention of it meeting the requirements for the assignment, it ended up blossoming into something much, much more. Anyways, this was the first serious poem I ever constructed, I hope everyone enjoys it!
A gentle flutter tickles my dirt crusted feet
But I have not the will to kick within this heat
The fuming wind begins to stir the blackened sea
I lay marooned upon the sands of misery.
Arising from the hot embers of the murky shoal
I am taken by a fury beneath my soul
The waves begin to rage under the twisting sky
As an azure dragonfly hovers before my eyes
In an uncontrolled fury I pace upon the moor
I seek an unrestrained vengeance from these shores
I mark the sneering face and his thin diguise
For one day I shall light the fire to his demise.
The moon rose and fell more than I foretold
My plans begin to slip through my failing hold
As my anger falters from a calming breeze
I feel myself collapse beside the peaceful sea
Serene light streams through the darkened skies
Inviting my to say my last goodbyes
A dragonfly rests upon my outstretched hand
While I take my final breath in the sand
The majestic being flutters into the night
As I release myself unto the light.
