i am

i am

A Poem by Alm

I have an odd ability to know

a tragedy when I see one


at its beginning

sweet and gentle


but inevitably hurtling towards

a shattering  end


it is a feeling in my gut or in my heart

--depends, really, on the situation--

staring at the blueprints of some




that is just begging to be proven wrong

and I know why this is


why I have this inherent ability

and intrinsic love for the tragic stories


it is because I am


and once was a bright optimistic beginning

just waiting to crash and fall


I am a tragedy and it takes one to know one

Author's Note

I find myself struggling with words and I feel all of my poetry is in want of something I have lost

Alm is short for Alyssa Marie. I'm sixteen now, I don't claim to write well. I'm sorry if I review bad. Sometimes I bake snickerdoodles, the smell of cinnamon and vanilla on my fingertips lingers... more..
