Snapped

Snapped

A Poem by Mari Baptiste

My eyes widen 
Upon hearing a sound

A horrible...horrible sound...


Oh no...
Don't tell me...Please no!
This can't be!

I roll over and look down at the horrifying sight

My loyal companion throughout high school
My aid
My guide
My sight when I could not see!


Everything was a blur
Till you came into my life
You made everything so clear to me!


I pick up the pieces
And assess the situation
I'm completely mortified!

What am I to do?
The damage is done
Irreversible damage at that!

4 years together
Gone!

I pause for a moment
And then let out a laugh


Perhaps it's about time
I got a new pair of glasses


In loving memory of my broken pair of glasses, which I accidentally lied on as I was falling asleep.

At first I was racking my brain thinking it was something that died or I don't know what. As it continued I started smiling and laughing. Thank you for the wonderful writing.

Very much enjoyed that, and though short it made me ask many questions just like a book. Thanks for the read!

I thoroughly enjoyed this, The rhythm although unique was easy to follow, and the reveal at the end was executed perfectly. Great Job

This is good writing. You wrote it, in such a way that it had the audience truly wondering what you were talking about, or who? I liked it. It made me laugh.

A (dare I say it) 'SPECtacular' poetic composition of humorous intent - also highlights the pitfalls of falling asleep whist reading in bed! Love it ... [:-)

Nicely done Mari. Great mystery until the end. There's a bit of wavering between tenses, but my over-riding feeling is I was hooked! Others also seem to like it!

I discovered my passion for writing a little bit later compared to other writers my age. Most of them start at around 13 or 14. I only started at 17. My teachers told me that I had a knack for writing.. more..
