"What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well."
― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince


You ask me how I want
my eggs
I say I want
them home
untouched, unharmed
They hold too much
innocence in their shell of gold
Do not break it!
Do not spill
what He has given.
Just reach out –
Feel the cold?
it is contagious
Do not let it
freeze your heart
(crunch)
No!
do not think you can
(scoop)
separate such
pain!
No, I do not want it –
you have scrambled me already
fried my heart
No
I thought I made it
clear
Sins have no
sunny side

I thought it would be interesting to try and write a different kind of poem, so here it is. Tell me what you think about this strange style. :)

"Hope. It is the only thing greater than fear. A little hope is effective. A lot of hope is dangerous. A spark is okay, as long as it's contained."

The Poem is intersting, but try next time to add a more sense of imagry

I like the use of metaphor to capture a complex idea. Very thought-provoking poem.
