in the Stars’ Freezing Arms- A pantoum

Standard

I have never actually written one of these, and as a result, the quality is a bit poor…. I don’t think I will do this kind of poem again, the format is just too darn complicated! It’s alright, I think it’s still good enough.

in the Stars’ Freezing Arms- A pantoum

I lie down facing the stars

My hands are stained with blue

But no one can open my eyes

So I can see the world without hesitation.

 

I cannot open my eyes

In the stars’ freezing arms

And see the world without hesitation,

So I walk with the winter.

 

In the stars’ freezing arms

I am thinking of the sun

Walking with the winter

Remembering our love that wasn’t love

 

I am thinking of the sun

And for a second i think I hear your calls

I rememberĀ our love that wasn’t love

But it fades like a whisper echoing through walls.
