The Collection

The Collection

A Poem by Ally Monique
"

you are a collection of endless good things

"
Moments coat you,
like the dust on a forgotten bookcase;
with the company of 1,000 words,
you are every thought,
and lingering decision
that hardened 
your soft skin. 

Time encases you,
like the blue butterfly in a mason jar;
embracing the world untouched,
you are every stretch
and forlorn hope
that discolored 
your inner ambiance.

And although you may not believe it be so,
You are the space between flavors;
And I want nothing more than to taste,
what only the blind can see.

wow, writing needs to be more than just a hobby...and i think it really is...
you are a poet...your phrasing is captivating.

sometimes we go so far into ourselves, recede from the world, thinking we are unworthy--
but luckily this speaker sees much more than meets the naked eye...

she sees the "collection" of good things.

First stanza's one of my favorites. It reminds me about the past-days of life that I spent with literature 24x7...throughout all of the days. A depth's being hidden behind your words that I love the most about your poem. Nice flow of ink.

The final stanza held some strong thoughts and a good aftertaste.

We do put ourselves in our writings... and sometimes others do "see".
The last line really wrapped up the rest of it quite nicely. Very sensual and used experimental thoughts to describe things poignantly... I like the fact that you've left space for doubt in the poem as well.

You are welcome. The poem was very good.
Very nice, Ally. An interesting thought expressed in a beautiful and poetic manner. Great imagery and metaphors. We are a collection of all the good and all the bad that happens to us. Our past colors who and what we are, whether we want to admit it or not. Great poem. young poetess...
