An Ode…


Oh melancholy!
What bitter time we shared,
During those years of longing and dread,
You knew me well.

Oh misery!
We were best friends,
with fear and disappointment,
crumpled hopes, dark dreams,
Intertwined like one.

Oh agony!
My heart flayed open
by Cupid’s cruel arrows.
Time intervenes, and I have
The time of sorrow.


[Author’s Note: I never wrote a poem for a post before, so this is the “something completely different”.  When I was a teen I constantly wrote poems. Reading them as an adult, I found them dark and depressing. This poem is my ode to teenage angst.]


So... How do you feel about that?
