Waiting

Poem By Ro'in Mao

Waiting… waiting…
People passing…
Odours wafting...
Fading… fading…
Footsteps drumming…
Klaxons blaring…
Noises garbling…
Intermingling…
Sight collapsing…
Head pulsating…
Heart unsettling…
Palpitating…
Time is trickling…
Ticking… ticking…
Creeping... closing...
Coming… nearing…
Waiting… waiting…
Waiting…waiting…

Comments about Waiting

The ever present hand of time is felt on all things, great use of the format, it feels like what a heart attack would be like, the pounding of mortality is knocking fast. Great work!

Midnight Muse

With night-hued shadows dance the silver strips
Of lovely Mistress Moon's visage ashine.
The crickets sing the fairness of her lips,
Their strings lay praise in rows out line by line.

Black Cat

There once was a grunt so doubtlessly fair,
Black cats came out of his mouth with much flair.
They spread far and wide
On Earth's every side,

A Pawn's Muse

Thy bitterness, again to me it calls
With naughty fingers and so sweet a voice,
In-soaking all my heart's unsavoury galls
And gets to me enthralled—far gone is choice.

Berceuse

My darling babe,

Do not let the nightlings
Bug you again now,

Go On, O Ash

Go on, o ash—dye all thy grey,
And leave the naked wind to say
'Farewell', to sing low in the deep
A song of rest, or endless sleep.
