Day 18 – 30 poems in 30 days

This month is National Poetry Writing Month, and it has been brought to my attention by WordPress that this would be an excellent opportunity for us to express ourselves. Everyday, for the entire month, we write a creative piece as homage to poetry. So, I’ve decided to take on this challenge and, it has been years since I wrote anything, so this should be interesting. Obviously, I missed 2 days, but that’s ok. There’s still the rest of the month. Wish me luck!

Day 17

————————————————

*a modified oldie*

Stillness by any means necessary

Is allowing the heart to beat

A second at a time

Hearing the longing cries

Of a forgotten child

Stillness by any means necessary

With a power of 1,000 bullets

I will shatter the mere walls

Of a cold heart that will reign

Through the valleys of passion

Quiet!!

The noise is too much to bear

No more, I say, no more

I wish to carry this message

To the most tender of hearts

And to claim that

Stillness will be necessary
