Good morning everyone, I do acknowledge that I cannot post personal information here, however, I would still like to share that I have been working on an art zine for the past 2 months or so. I would appreciate some feedback on two of these poems that I personally feel have the most soul.
 
Untitled #3
Hollowing fears
Tick tock, tick tock-
Sound of goodbye
Tick tock, tick tock-
Our hands are lost in the symphony of the sky
Yet I only sigh in the silence
Wondering if it could grant my wish
To prolong the days we spend
On the outskirts of a grand city.
A forgotten symphony begins to play
As my dress begins to flutter in the wind
In the midst of my sorrow.
These words are only reminiscing the pain as the sweet Cello
Weeps its alluding dreams.
Alone, I lift my hand to the sky only to hear
The ticking of the clocks
Yet the time is near, when we will meet again
Opening the doors, I listen to the years
When the symphony used to play
Tick tock, tick tock
Menacing clock
 

Transcend
Barren are the streets I walk,
As the cold gently caresses my face and the slumbering city
Alone was I on the path of memories
Heated from the argument with my mother
Who sought to keep me from the world’s solemn embrace
Wearily I crossed the feeble outskirts
Worn from traffic, beaten by storms.
Only when I sat at the park bench did I see,
The spirit of the Veteran Memorial Park stare silently at me
Then and there as I wrote
I Transcended to a much higher place.
Above the storm, above my sorrows
I was reborn
 
 
Thank you for your time!
