Here's two poems I wrote a while ago. I love the first one :D

Sometimes it seems
like I only have words
for the huge thoughts
that overflow my brain--
but what about that thought
that flew past my
mind a minute
It said that
the giant white starfish
on the magazine cover
looks like an alien
upside down.
It doesn't.
So why do
the three bottles of glue
line up on the divider
remind me of elves
with their red,
red caps?

There's a candle
on the table next to me
with a lampshade
of different colored glass
blue and pink and yellow
glinting in the sun
I can imagine how
the colors would glow and shimmer
with a sun lit up inside.
We never light it.

Here's a poem I just wrote.

I wish I could find a way to say
how confused this all makes me.
I wish confusion would
float away in the wind
like a kite
glinting in the sun
as it flies over ocean waves
as it's string is severed
by an invisible force
as it dips and soars
getting smaller as it goes
I turn away
the world's gone too
all is peaceful and white.

Originally I had the end

I turn away
before it disappears
the world's gone too
all is peaceful and white.

Which do you like better?
