Leboman Does Poems During April

I'm just going to start a thread and put all of my NaPoWriMo stuff in here. Feel free to read and critique at will. None of these will be finished until after April. I'm trying to write what comes to my mind and leave it alone. There will be time for editing later.

Headache

Curled up on the sofa again
head smothered and hands clawing.
Sweat-soaked pillow over my face
the only refuge from the light.
I kick back at the morning
as it crashes through the room.
Blitzing the fortress of night
forcing itself into every crevice.
Shadows dissipate then die
muscles contract and joints scream.
Demons beat box behind weary eyes
spitting and flowing old school.
Rhymes and cadences from hell
spun by a DJ always on the beat.

Nice start, Mr. Modlin. I especially like "Demons beat box behind weary eyes/spitting and flowing old school." It's a fun image.

Prom Night

Annie blindly pirouettes
through neon explosions
showers of lightning fall
as she parts the human sea
oblivious to the beat.
She partakes the dark elixir
I have boiled together
for just such an occasion.
She gorges herself completely
her lips moist with sweet toxins.
She whirls and twirls and spins
like a dervish dancing
electric currents flowing
blinding her from within.

Father Hood


threadbare
tattered
torn to shreds
stripped
down to the bone
frazzled
knocked down
for the count
****ed up
through
and through

slave to DNA
imprisoned
from the start
heredity
temperament
the chosen cell
singing
and praying
in chains
one angel
away
from
freedom

That one is REALLY bad but I like some of the ideas. I may pull it back out after this month is over and play with it some more. I have had a really bad day and this is the only thing that has come to mind after nearly fourteen hours of pondering it.

early springtime dusting
greens and yellows
enveloped in the haze
biological reaction
nonparisitic antigens
dancing on the breeze

I've still got to post yesterday's poem and write one for today. This weekend was crazy.

Big Bang

supernova sunset
a thousand points of light
innumerable galaxies
exploding in your eyes
surf the solar winds
on your sub-atomic kiss
we ride the dying comets
till we become the myth

World Without You

I stand at your door and knock.
The weight of the world
suffocates me.
I have hitch-hiked
across time and space,
hoping to find you.
One glimpse is all I need
to put everything in place.
I call your name
but no one answers.
Through the window I see
your cape trampled on the floor.
Your secret identity
lies balled up in the corner.
A suicide note,
written in someone else's hand,
is taped to your body.
Tears fill my eyes
I turn away,
alone in this universe
once more.

too many stars

There's too many stars
for me to shine
tonight.
I can only
reflect the light
they bring.
I can only
echo the songs
they sing.
My words ring hollow
contrived and untrue.
The skies are cluttered
constellations muddied
and I am just another
dying meteor
streaking out of view
to make way.
There's too many stars
for me to shine
tonight.

untitled #2

If I could only prove
that I love you
would you forgive
all the things I've done
lies that erode the sand
from beneath our feet
every wayward glance
at lovers less suitable
lust that kills the flame
you have kindled within
If I could only prove
that I love you
would it hurt less
when I begin to turn
and walk away again
into the arms of another
hugs that leave you cold
and have me gasping breathless
bathed in bitter kisses
that numb my taste for you

I have fought the urge to re-write and edit these. I've got to write something for today but I'm feeling a bit dejected. None of these have really turned out the way I envisioned when I began them. This may be harder than trying to write a novel in one month.
