Fast Forward

Fast Forward

A Poem by Azure Montessa (Blue)

Fast forward to the days
when I pack up my suitcase.
I bring my dreams with me
as I take flight to his place.

Fast forward to the days
when he waits me with a grin.
I give him my timid smile,
with a kiss, he pulls me in.

Fast forward to the days
when we walk by the sea.
We voice out our hearts,
sweet lines of poetry.

Fast forward to the days
when he loves me and my scars.
I whisper, "I love you, too."
as we sleep beneath the stars.

Fast forward to the days
when he kneels with a ring.
And all throughout our marriage,
I hear the heaven sing.

Oh, love often contradicts
time's most usual pace
'Cause my thoughts always wander
fast forward to the days...

Some noticed that most of my poems depict sadness. So here's a ray of sunshine for you. :)

Creative writing of all kinds exposes more about the writer than most of us would really care to admit. In your case with sad poems, the hurt and pain are clear. The circumstances that put you there are uniquely your own, and private, but the feelings that are left behind in your words are the things that people connect with. The emotions coming through are what separate "good" from "excellent". The best poems aren't necessarily about rhythm patterns, stanzas, word count, or anything else. The best poems are the ones you -feel-. That is what the great writers present and past are talking about when they are talking about "truthful writing".

This poem, for example, is a positive write - on the surface. But underneath, I can feel a sad wistfulness behind the words, a feeling that the sunshine is a little forced. A good poem about wishful thinking, but I don't think that you were entirely honest with yourself when you wrote it. Take a good long look at it, and I think you'll see what I mean.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the poem, along with pretty much everything else you've sent my way so far. But I honestly think that if you're sad, you should write sad, until you aren't sad anymore. Don't try to write sunshine when it really isn't in you, even if you think you're writing too many sad poems.

Try writing angry poems, though, if you want a change of pace. Those can be a bit fun. (And they often make great lyrics for death metal songs! Just saying...) :^D

I was thinking that instead of "fast forward" you might consider "pause on the day" for him giving the ring...And maybe even, "rewind the the ring again" or something...just to fully use the metaphor as a device.

I agree with what Douglas was saying. It has a feel of wishful thinking behind the words. Though I still think wishing for something is a type of feeling too...I have a few wishful thoughts as well, it's good to set them free. I really enjoyed reading this one :) It's made me think about what I wish for in the future, which has made me want to work towards the future more. Well done with this piece. Love it

Sadness is a prime motivator for a lot of emotions. But then we all can move beyond that and make it positive. You put a lot of feelings into this one. well done.
