Remembrances

My first set of emmetts:I recall memories of old,Recall remembrances randomMemories forced into martyrdom*Of harrow, now unfoldOld echoes bygone now loom.I recall memories of old,Recall deeds that perforce regret,Memories I'll always dread,Of emotions stone cold,Old sins I'd like to forget.I recall memories of old,Recall bittersweet moments,Memories long forgottenOf joy and sorrow untold,Old and older, as …

Narrow Minded

A poem:I write once more With the freedom I yearned When bound by the shackles Of narrow mindedness, Insular no more, I inculcate ideas new, Improvising on the old, Conjuring thoughts anew. I write once more With the creativity I craved When imprisoned within mind Of conservation grave. My poetic spirit rejuvenated, Welds verses with …

Dunk

I'm back y'all! It's been a while...but finally, I've managed to pen something..my next quadrille's out!The sound of basketballCrashing into the hoop,When dunked with ferocityIs like no other...To celebrate, or notIs secondary. To hearThat soothing swish,Is every basketballer's dream.The sound of ball bargingThrough hoop, is musicI'd hearken all day. -The Forgers of FantasyThis has been …

Freeverse Beckons

My next freeverse poem:I can't find the right words, Freeverse beckons... Beckons with open arms, I cannot resist no more, Having struggled for long, Trying to weld verses with what I have, Tools of brilliance faded, A forger who once molded magic Now a failure, a feckless fool...My workshop forged fantasies, Masterpieces worthy of applause, …
