And So The Robin Keeps Its Distance

Poem By Samantha Stough

Gossamer threads may break to the touch,
But they seem to linger on your skin
Somehow the blood of the past winter
Seeps through the walls as they cave in

The fox will run away from the stream,
Once his reflection is no longer entertaining
How is it that the perfect picture of serenity
Would require such terrible restraining

Some creatures would rather hide in trees instead,
But it is only their predestined nature
The birds especially,
Would only see solid ground as an anchor

I still can’t make sense of this,
But something about it feels right
And so the robin keeps its distance,
Safely watching me from the other side

What a gorgeous poem! You have a gift.
Gossamer threads may break to the touch, But they seem to linger on your skin Somehow the blood of the past winter Seeps through the walls as they cave in What a wonderful poem, Sam, very symbolic though. The title of the poem is very catchy and meaningful. You have the depth. Please keep writing. Best Wishes Naseer

Actions

Ashes or butterflies?
Who knows? I’m not sure.
I cant tell the difference anymore.

Warped Reality

Somewhere across a misty, black sea,
Revolution is breaking at dawn
But in this safe little cage of mine,
Time just seems to slowly roll on

Forever In Summer

Something tells me
The summer has just begun
So why is it that I feel
Like it has already gone?

Motivation Please?

I will search every inch of the world
Until I find my motivation
Using this disaster
As the pinnacle of my creation

Killing Me Slowly

Breathing ancient words
I remember they're yours
Pleasant and fake
I will never want to think think again
