A Lost Sense of Purpose
12th grade, art, best

In the grassy plains of a small island
Came from nonexistence a young sapling
Nurtured by the love of her...
Again--and Again--and Again
childhood, fear, night,
I was just ten or twelve when I first saw
him standing in the doorway of my room.
I was awake--or so I thought. Each time
A Misummer's Night Dream
Once upon a midsummer’s night,
I dreamed a dream of horses white,
of Billy goats and little fishes-
of dogs and cats and childhood wishes.
I dreamed of a...
Your room remains unchanged-
just as it was when you went away-
Care Bears and books still arranged,
your dolls all lined up on display....

Chasing your tail forever like a dog
Into the forest, confusion of the fog
A door that’s locked, without a key
Asleep you found it, woke not to...
The Old House

Seven generations walked through your door,
Which stood so strong and always welcomed in.

A Brittle Boquet
lifelife, lost, life, lost,
My life has become a brittle bouquet
Of dead red roses in rapid decay
And all that I thought one day I could be
A lullaby vibrates against my cheek,

Until the cradle falls, from winds that blow,

childhood, death, depression, family,
Saying goodbye was the last thing I'd do
You were taken from our lives far too soon
My world has changed now that I don't have you
childhood, fantasy, funnyhalloween, love,
I knew an old woman
Who flew round the Moon
Wore a tall pointed hat
And rode on a broom
She dressed all in black
childhood, children, life,

from above it have been spelled
there made a sacrament of longing,
a promise of ever loving
moments passed by
no one gave a sigh-
my papa the rockstar
childhood, family, sad, me,
My Papa's a "Rockstar" but I never saw his show,
yet people sure would stare at us wherever we would go.
