I’m going to try something new. For awhile I did a category called Poems Written on Paper. Today I am going to try something a bit different: Poems in a Picture.

Here is the first.

She holds her shattered, barely-beating heart on display Inside the window for people to view today. Most brush it aside—She clamors for a stopping stare; But her wants are denied; no soul on earth seems to care. I knock on her window—trying to seduce a smile; She glances over, says, “it has been gone for quite a while.” Softly I ask her “why,” but receive no kind reply - Her gaze lingers forward, whispers, “did he really die?” I find a way in and hold her through tonight’s process; Underneath the stars we sit and let the day digest. I know I have no words to appease her hollow pain; But I stay beside her amidst the tears and the blame. Her tragic thoughts speak loudly through her tear-stricken shirt. I promise to do anything to make it not hurt.

“On Display”

She holds her shattered, barely-beating heart on display

Inside the window for people to view today.

Most brush it aside—She clamors for a stopping stare;

But her wants are denied; no soul on earth seems to care.

I knock on her window—trying to seduce a smile;

She glances over, says, “it has been gone for quite a while.”

Softly I ask her “why,” but receive no kind reply –

Her gaze lingers forward, whispers, “did he really die?”

I find a way in and hold her through tonight’s process;

Underneath the stars we sit and let the day digest.

I know I have no words to appease her hollow pain;

But I stay beside her amidst the tears and the blame.

Her tragic thoughts speak loudly through her tear-stricken shirt.

I promise to do anything to make it not hurt.

Welcome to the empty recesses of my mind! I'm a recent college graduate realizing a Creative Writing degree was a bad idea. Give me a pity like. Or you could check out the about sections (on the front page and about this author page) on my blog to learn a little more about me. Whatever. https://thebohemianrockstarpresents.wordpress.com/

What do you think? Do you agree? Do you love it? Or am i a complete tool? Any response is welcome!
