Let’s Read a Poem, Shall We?

Happy Thursday friends! I was in a poetry class this semester, and we turned in our final poetry collection the other day. I am really proud of it and excited about what I wrote this past semester, and I wanted to share a poem with you, especially since it’s totally different than what I usually post on here. Enjoy!

 

my smile takes up my whole face, but I have clouds on my hands so I can’t touch it

by: Bekah Pollard

 

I sit in a freshly opened jar of marshmallow fluff,

tilting back ever-so-slightly.

The tips of my toes peeking out

from atop the mound.

 

A miniature man in overalls stands on my shoulders and pours

a tin bucket of luke-warm water

down my back, igniting my senses.

 

My lips tingle from a kiss.

My fingertips twitch from a touch.

The very tip of my right ring-finger toe tells me,

“Hey, this is fun.”

 

The waterfall feels numb and present

as droplets dance and dart

across my back.

The man with the bucket takes a break

and opens a trap door above my left ear,

blowing the fog from the cracks in my brain.

 

I wrap myself in a blanket as

the tip of my right ring-finger toe

kisses the floor.

I fall asleep lying on my back

in a tub of warm water,

covering my ears halfway.

 

Whoop, there it is.

Whoop, there it is.

 

Keep doing work on those finals, and thanks for reading :)
