Darkness is surrounding me
Splash! Splash! Splash!
I want to reach the shore.
But the dark waves are so great.
They obscure my vision
Leaving me cold
Leaving me aimlessly floating.
My feet laboriously tread the water
My hands exhaustingly push the water down.
Anxious of my fate
I started to shout
and ask for help.
But great waves choked me up
Salty liquid filled up my mouth
Making my throat sore and dry.
Just as I felt my life floating away,
Just when my weary body surrendered,
A strong hand lifted me from the waves
“Just rest. Don’t worry. You are now safe.”
It only takes a few muscles to smile
But to person who had frowned
for most of her life
It would probably take a lot more.
someone guides her heart and mind
to lift the hill-curve upwards.

This cinquain wasn’t made out of procrastination. (*cheers*) It was made in poetry class, on the spot for two minutes. We were challenged by our professor to make one so here it is. About the chosen topic, well, I’m having a very bad cough right now that my voice turned hoarse.
And you know what? In exchange for this poem, I got two free books from our professor! 🙂
PS Our professor is A GREAT author (great writer and has a very wild imagination, it varies from wild to funny)
I wrote this days before Christmas break. Nyehehehe….I was soo excited to go home. XD
in case you can’t read my handwriting, here’s the poem:
I wish I can make my parents proud of me.
I wish I’d love the right man.
I wish I’d die peacefully.
I wish I could be truly happy.
A – 10 – tion!
I DIDN’T WRITE THIS POEM. I just stumbled upon it as I was looking for examples of epistle poems (aside from those in the bible) because (yes, you guessed right..) it’s our homework. I liked it the first time I’ve read it, so yeah ~ I’m giving it up to you, and I hope you like it too^^
Remember when the cat clawed my face?
I know I shouldn’t have wrapped her up like a baby,
I was young and I loved that cat so much,
A bit less after she’d made me bleed though!
And that time you went to the fair with me,
On the Gravity Wheel, you went green,
You should have said you were scared,
I know you didn’t want me to miss out.
Those times I used to ‘creep’ in at 3am,
To find you waiting up, with a cup of tea,
You couldn’t sleep until you knew I was in safe.
I feel bad for all the times I didn’t appreciate you,
Didn’t listen, or do as I was told.
That week of silent treatment haunts me now!
I don’t know what I did to deserve you, but I am
Glad I’ve got you and I never want to let you go.
You’ve done so much for me, how will I ever pay you back?
I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to, but as long as you know
I love you dearly and do appreciate you. One day I’ll get the
Chance to pay you back for everything you’ve given me, but it’s
A huge debt to pay – but a debt I am honoured to owe.
Mum, you’re something else. Everyone says their mum is
The best, but you ARE the best and I just want you to know that.
Your name still stains my brain
Your face, your eyes, your smile…
My heart and mind doubts, “Should I like you? –
Will a miracle come true for me, too?”
Your face, your eyes, your smile
too bad those aren’t mine.
“Will a miracle come true for me, too?”
It’s obvious, it’s hopeless.
Too bad those aren’t mine –
but still my heart and mind doubts, “Should I like you?”
I know it’s obvious, that it’s hopeless.
Still, it’s difficult to wipe your name off my brain.

This poem was inspired by my undying feeling (which I really am trying to put out) towards this guy in our university. He’s a head-turner, his dashing smile kills me, he’s so smart, he’s a gentleman… but he already has a girlfriend. 😦
That’s why I have to forget him. Or just limit my feelings to pure attraction – “I just like him.”
Disclaimer! This poem isn’t mine. I just want to share this wonderful poem I discovered…or more of like heard from a classmate who reported it in class. I fell in love for this poem T.T Hope you like it too^^ (And, I really hope I can make one too >.<)
