Throwback Thursday Poetry: Obsession

Disclaimer: This is a story. I am not a stalker.

no one saw what i could see
the beast within that haunted me
it lay dormant in childhood days
then awoken at my first gaze
upon this beauty named fair Rachel
whom was surely named by an angle

i began to court this fair maiden
she gave me thoughts opposite of a Raven
i fell in love with her eyes
the amazing balls that could mesmerize
my thoughts all became of her
this young woman who was a wonder

it felt as if i was reborn
no longer was i being torn
this person who enchanted me
was what i needed to be happy
my mind thought of nothing more
it was like the days of yore

i grew to love this woman before me
she was all that i could see
we had our ups and downs in the past
but nothing could break our great mass
i went to see her the other day
and she screamed to me “stay away!”

i did not understand what happened
they all said i had an obsession
this your woman whom i adored
i only thought of, nothing more
when i went to her door
the Constable said “nevermore”

Throwback Thursday Poetry: Social Studies

here you see
the Preps
with their stylish clothes and perky faces
they remain happy with thoughts of angles
the people who attend church every Sunday
and buy their children cars for their 16th birthday

here you see
the Gangsta’s
with their gold chains and sideways caps
they look over exaggerate the way they talk and act
the people who speak english worse than immigrants
they brag constantly about their accomplishments

here you see
the Punks
with their green hair and Mohawks
they think the world hates them though it does not
the people who look weird just to be different
look like a Picasso painting on canvas

here you see
the Goths
with their dark clothes and morbid minds
they think about death all the time
the people who frighten the other groups of the world
will continue to do so with the smirk of a girl
