Snowglobe

Poem By Cassandra Helen

Sprinkles falling onto frozen faces
Don’t fight gravity
And other facts of life
Lost to the opulence of the city
2 am, afraid to sleep

“What will you give me for a dream? ”

Clicking of stiletto heels beat rhythmically
On the concrete
Scuffed from pacing the same street
Night after night
Scarred soles.

“What will you give me for a dream? ”

Look at the stars
Search for heaven
Is it burning brighter
Than the embers inside?

Snow melts to slush
Fade to gray

Tip-toe in, stay awake
Thoughts are easier to control than dreams
Purple shadows around purple eyes
Too afraid to sleep

“What will you give me for a dream? ”

Comments about Snowglobe

I think you have a good poem here but you need to make it more consistent. What I mean by this is you repeat the phrase “What will you give me for a dream? ” then you don't repeat it between the the third and fourth stanza. Consistency makes for a better poem in my personal opinion. Its good stuff though
very, very nice...i liked this one...thanks for sharing

Stars

Blemishes on the night’s face
Glowing brighter with each passing hour.
With each iridescent wish
And each shining prayer.

Mirrors

Embers of voices
Crackling in ears.
Light leaving dreams,
A pile of ash.
