The Poet's Forum

Something new

Well, I was writing an essay for a Language & Composition class (yeah, I know, I really know how to have fun, don't I?) and I couldn't help it... I just started writing poetry. So, here's a product of that... what would you call it? extreme boredom? an outlet of frustration? *grin* anyway, it's pretty rough since I haven't had time to clean it up, but I wanted to post it anyway:

And there's a rapturous silence

     In the secret hollows of this future

And it conjures the sweet bewilderment of beauty

     Wreathed in flitting clouds

And the only thing I can compare it to is the star-crowned mountain

     That looms over my ravaged spirit

And there's a wonder bigger than this

     That's bigger than anything I could ever be

And all I can do is look

     So I look, I drink it in

And I see it with awed, wide eyes

     With it's reflection clear in them

And you can see it in me

     Expecting me to explain in mere words

And you wonder why I can't

     I wonder too, since it's a part of me

And I see it inside of me

     When I look at myself

And I wonder How Big Can I Be?

	With no expectation or even longing for an answer.


It ends a bit abruptly, I know, but I had already gotten the idea I wanted across... help? :)
