I just wrote this poem. It's about yesterday, today it's lovely out :)

There once was a day
when the sky was dark
and it felt like ghosts
were moaning
the gloom of the night
stayed to haunt the day
and no one
could escape it's grasp.

The ghosts and the gloom
and the gray of the sky
cast a spell over all within--
they fancied themselves
in a castle somewhere
waiting for a prince
to arrive.

A few minutes ago I wrote a poem. It's the first in a while, I've mostly been writing songs lately. I can tell I haven't been writing them, also I think my writing style is being influenced a little bit by Les Miserables which I'm reading right now, but I don't know if anyone else will notice.

The sun slips away
and shadows fill the room
the doll on the windowsill
is frozen in perpetual song.

A silence steals in
so deep that thoughts are sluggish
in it's presence.

It is an absence of light
of noise-- of movement--
my thoughts are suspended in place.
Everything seems frozen.

New Poem

Here is a poem I wrote two minutes ago. I put spaces where it felt natural to me, but does that make it look too much like there's verses?

You read things
hear things
see things
and your heart is touched.

Filled to bursting
with bittersweet joy
and pain that turns to hope

lifting through the sorrows
of other people's lives
you see yours
for the first time

your heart must
be touched
and you soar
through the drizzle
and the blizzard
and the overflowing rain

look back; life glimmers
with these moments
when you sense the change
of pain turning to hope
within you.
