He was hanging off a bridge…
Hey again! I believe I’ve successfully broken through my writer’s block! Tonight’s a double feature with another free verse poem that’s straight from the heart. Hope you enjoy!
The first time I saw him,
he was hanging off a bridge.
I rushed over and bent down,
reaching out to grab his hand.
His long fingers interlocked with mine,
and for a brief moment,
all was okay.
All was ecstasy.
Then, his fingers started slipping,
s l o w l y,
I strained frantically,
sobbing and screaming simultaneously,
trying to maintain some hold on him —
And all the while,
he kept slackly slipping
further and further out of my grasp.
An eon later,
an eon of mind-numbing pain later,
the connection was severed;
And as I watched him fall away,
vision barred with gemlike teardrops,
it dawned on me:
He had never attempted to hang on.

Her eyes encompass a galaxy of their own…
Hey guys! I’ve been experiencing writer’s block recently, which is why I haven’t written poetry in so long. Here’s a ‘Tanka’ (See Intertwined Petals (Tanka)) I wrote that comes straight from the heart. Hope you enjoy!
Her eyes encompass
a galaxy of their own;
flecked with raw emotion —
Profound pools of untold stories.

Is it safe within a safe?
Hey guys! So I’m sort of on a kick of incorporating emotion into my poetry recently, so here’s another ‘Free Verse’ poem that hopefully conveys an emotion through it… See if you can guess the emotion I was trying to convey. Enjoy reading!
In safe hands,
the diamond sits contentedly;
Placed into a vessel,
Protected from all harm.
Until the roof comes caving in,
under fierce assault,
and with a shattering tumult,
The diamond lies
within a safe.
