Catastrophe Rising

"I'll carry your world"

This Month’s Poem: August 2016

Well my Summer is officially coming to an end. Tomorrow is my first day of classes and while I’m really excited to continue my education, I’ll miss the relaxed, laid-back feeling that comes with the season. Thankfully, the warm weather doesn’t stop here. I’ll be able to enjoy it, at least until around October.

 

Anyway, not only is Summer coming to an end but also the month of August. And before it goes, I still need to post a poem for this month.

 

This one doesn’t have a name it’s something that came out of the blue last week, as I was doing a late night reflection. I first got the inspiration for it when I saw the Perseids (a meteor shower that takes place in the Northern Hemisphere during a few days in August). I hope you enjoy it.

 

I asked the stars

The question of love

Will it happen?

And when?

 

This was their answer:

 

We’re all the same, you and me

We live and we die

Sometimes, without ever getting noticed.

But other times,

The right person sees us

And our light reaches them.

 

But we’re all just a small part,

Just pieces of a universe.

 

Let me know what you think!

 

 

This Month’s Poem: July 2016

So I decided to start a new segment. I figured it might be a good idea to share a poem that relates to me. It might be one that someone else wrote (all credit will be given), or one that I’ve written myself.

This is one that I wrote myself. I wrote it back in April of 2015. The person whom I’m referring to in this one has long since left my life but I still think of him often.

I wont.

Got the news that you were leaving

Got the news but not from you

 

They said you’re gone

Off to better things

 

That you’re moving on

And not word of goodbye

 

I used to sit around and wait for more

But not anymore

 

And I won’t wake up everyday

With you on my mind

I won’t fall asleep at night

With you there

And won’t pause to think

That I wish that you were there

No I won’t pretend to care

 

I thought there was something there

But I was wrong

 

I thought this path that I was going down

Was different

 

And I used to sit around and wait for more

But not anymore

 

And I won’t wake up everyday

With you on my mind

I won’t fall asleep at night

With you there

And I won’t pause to think

That I wish that you were here

No I won’t pretend to care

 

You’re not fighting to be in my life

So I won’t fight

No I won’t fight

To be in yours

 

And I won’t wake up everyday

With you on my mind

I won’t fall asleep at night

With you there

 

No I won’t wake up everyday

With you always on my mind

And I won’t fall asleep

Hoping that you care

And I won’t wish

That you were here

And I won’t pretend

No I won’t pretend

That I miss you

 

So what do you think? I enjoy constructive criticism and I know there’s always room to improve. Hope you liked it!
