JUST WONDERING(Rhyming Couplets)

~Just Wondering~
(Rhyming Couplets)

You left me a long time ago in such an intolerable suspense
And to me nothing made any sense
Trying to find the broken pieces of my heart again
Only took its toll, and this augmented more my pain.

Everyday I wonder why some many bad things have to happen
Going through so much sorrow just deepen
So many of my emotions and opened more my wounds
Healing comes gradually sometimes just by writing with my pen.

You went somewhere, you just left me and I have to let you go too,
Why did you leave me like this, after all that we’ve gone through?
You tossed away everything that we have had for so very long,
I hope that you know by now that what you did was cruel and wrong.

Sitting here today I can’t help but to wonder most of the time about you
Recalling all the wonderful times we had, when your love was true, to me.

BROKEN DREAMS (Alliteration/Rhyming Couplets)

~Broken Dreams~
(Alliteration/Rhyming Couplets)

Sharp light falls angrily,
baleful summer entombs bleakly,
As concrete vessel sighs completely,
and vibrant life crashes hypocritically

Uniform dreams craves caressingly,
tribal battle-axe stoops suggestively,
As vestigal coma crashes dazzlingly,
and a broken light languishes sleeplessly

Broken dreams shrieks caressingly,
gray coma nags uncomfortably;
As deliberate creationism dies expectantly,
and soundless enticement capitulates finally

As a drunken light sheds thinly
and broken dreams sighs sullenly!

Sleepy Head

I wake up in the morning,
and ignore the alarm buzzing.
I roll out of my cozy bed
and scratch my sleepy head.
I realize I’m almost late for math
and quickly take my morning bath.
I get dressed like a swift bastard
and run to my class – going faster and faster.
I shockingly make it to class on time
and see the word “Canceled” scrawled upon a sign.
I take out my phone to check my mail
and look for prior notice, but to no avail.
I go back to my small apartment room
and wish that it was already June.

I get back into my cozy bed
and rest my sleepy head.

This was a poem I wrote for my first Poetry writing class at VCU. I made the assignment myself: write a list poem in couplet form!
