A few of my Favorite Things

A few of my Favorite Things

A Poem by apocalypse


Run my fingers across the guitar strings

and I'm reminded of a few of my favorite things


Long forgotten but dearly missed

When life goes on with the desperation in endless rings..

Reminded of a few of my favorite things


A group of friends ...no strings attached

Out of nowhere ..a moment hatched

Hysteria fills up ...and we see no reason

Now when i think back ...Damn! That was my favorite season


I look at that clear blue June sky

Across the yellow glare i see a flock fly

I wonder what it'd be like to have wings

And I'm reminded of a few of my favorite things


Just how those little gestures

Bring u the most treasured pleasures

An unexpected compliment..when you're having a glum moment

Waking up to your mum's smile

Warmer than sun's first ray on a cold winter day

The sound of a tuneless hum in the midst of dead silence

A baby gurgling when everything else around is so intense


The picture of a lost friend

Rushing through your mind

Filling it with a smile ...

Erasing the darkness of it's end


Staring at stark nothingness

Like a bright flash

Wondering about us mortal beings

I'm reminded of a few of my favorite things


At the edge of breaking down 

All hope lost... Deathly epiphanies realised

Feeling like a loner

And one simple call sets it all right

 

The sound of "We love you" 

When you think it's finally over

The promise of keeping safe

Luckier than a four leaf clover

 

Thinking about..

The beauty to your life ..a friend brings

I'm reminded of a few of my favorite things


Seeing the sun rise and 

Wash away all that tentative darkness 

That little shimmer you see

The hope that kindles


How in the grimmest of most moments

Just a thought you need

To take you out of that probable jinx

A memory from "a few of your favorite things"

Grimmest is a strange word. I had to read that a few times to make sure it was, in fact, a word. Anyway.

A happy one? Say it ain't so! This is probably the strongest of your pieces that I've read. The rhyme scheme works (mostly) and it has a good, upbeat flow to it. You may want to go in and fix where you have 'you' written as 'u'. I winced when I read that.

Haven't exactly figured out the "What i am" aspect of me. Self-introspection doesn't happen to be one my best talents. I am intrigued by the morose nuances of life, but that doesn't make me any less.. more..
