I felt like maybe I cheated poetry week a bit since I skipped Wednesday, so I now post one more poem. This one is short, but it was my first ever poem. I can actually remember writing it in my mind while sitting in a car traveling through one of Virginia’s beautiful thunderstorms. I was in 9th grade.
I often thought I’d add more to it, but I was afraid I’d mess it up. Since it’s my first, it’s a bit sentimental for me.
Tears from Heaven
Sound of thunder filled my ears
The dark sky with lightening spears
Through my fear no scream would slip
I would keep it deep within
Hold my breath to release no tears
I would keep them through the years
