My Jacket

My Jacket

A Poem by Ashe Conten

My jacket is dark gray 
It zips down the middle 
The inside is lined with fur 
And strings pull the hood closed 
My jacket is warm 
And comfortable 
And, most important, 
It is familiar

It held me at night
Hugged me while I cried
Sent away my frights
Soft, cozy, and kind
It's collected my tears
Kept out my fears
Helped in such away
That is hard to explain
It covered up my lines
bleeding scars from all the times
that I claimed I way fine
Then tried to take my life


In the left pocket is Mea's poem
That I read when I'm on my own
I wrap up in Val's blanket
so I don't feel so alone
My jacket has kept me warm
in an uncountable number of ways
It kills me to think that I
Will outgrow it someday

My jacket is dark gray
It zips down the middle
The inside is lined with fur
And strings pull the hood closed
My jacket is warm
And comfortable
And, most important,
It is familiar
I CAN PICTURE YOUR JACKET, I TOO HAVE A GREY ONE AND I LOVE IT. LET ME SHARE YOU SOMETHING ABOUT THIS JACKET THING, IT HAS A GREAT MEMORY A LIFETIME ONE, ATTACHED WITH ME. I FEEL FOR SOMEONE SAW IN A JACKET. AS I WENT THROUGH THIS RIDE, SMILE PLAYED ON MY LIPS. THANK YOU FOR MAKING ME SMILE.


It held me at night
Hugged me while I cried
Sent away my frights
Soft, cozy, and kind
MAY FAVORITE FOUR LINES, WOW. HUGGED ME WHILE I CRIED. IT REFLECTS YOU'RE A PERSON WITH DEEP INSIGHTS AND WHO OBSERVES EVERYTHING KEENLY. LOVED IT.


It kills me to think that I
Will outgrow it someday
CLAPS! CLAPS! EVEN AFTER U'LL GROW UP ONE DAY, DO KEEP IT SAFE FOREVER

This is a beautiful rhyme scheme, the poem is amazing it really is. I love how most would think you just wrote about a jacket that you like but some, like me know there is more to it. Beautful write, good job.

You are very welcome, I just write the truth, like always.
I really like this poem! Especially the end when you say you'll one day outgrow the jacket.

You're welcome
Wow. I could literally imagine your jacket. Are you still wearing it right now? 😀 Beautifully written. I liked it very much especially the lines
It held me at night
Hugged me while I cried
Sent away my frights
Soft, cozy, and kind
It's collected my tears
Kept out my fears
Helped in such away
That is hard to explain
It covered up my lines
bleeding scars from all the times
that I claimed I way fine
Then tried to take my life
Never knew a jacket could mean a lot. Well done. Loved it.
