Firecracker Girl

Firecracker Girl

A Poem by Céce


She’s like a Chinese paper lantern,

glowing up the night;

like a bunch of lilac flowers,

purple, velvet, bright.

She’s like a thousand colors all in one,

tornado-earthquake-thunderstorm.


She trails incense on her fingers,

leaves flowers in her bed,

sleeps without pajamas on,

makes up stories in her head.


One moment she’s the air you breathe,

the next she takes your breath away,

she makes you blush, turns you pale,

runs here, runs there, yet always stays.


She makes these starbursts in your world

that you’ve never seen before.


She’s a firecracker girl.

"One moment she’s the air you breathe,
the next she takes your breath away"

I have a line insanely close to this one in a poem in my recently published book 'Into The Never'. It's something different when someone can make you feel this way. I like this poem. I love the imagery and your word usage.

I loved this CeCe. The rhyme made it perfect and the playfulness just added to the fun. Great poem thanks for sharing.

I absolutely love this poem! It makes me think of my first love and how electrifying it felt. Definitely captured emotion brilliantly :)

this piece had its very highs and lows. The first stanza for instance was great, but some small diction choices made me stumble a bit. "glowing (in) the night" as opposed to "up". "She's like a thousand tornadoes at once" (omit "all" for rhythm and logic) and later "runs here, runs there, yet always stays" is a weak line. OF COURSE, this is all just my idiosyncratic tastes, but something to chew on. I like the slant rhyme of latern/thunderstorm, and ur similes and imagery are awesome, and apt (Chinese paper lantern and Firecracker connection) The world/girl rhyme is a bit trite, usually only song writers get away with it lol but It did tidy up the poem. I almost want a series out if this "Barbie Boy" "Jalepeno Woman" lol but naaah.

I enjoy the smooth but energetic flow--it's very fitting for the subject, "Firecracker Girl." There's nothing too deep here; just a light-hearted, makes-you-feel-good kind of poem. I like it.

I think this is the type of girl that steals man's attention with just a snap of her fingers. But, I believe that the admiration she gets will only be ephemeral. Passing. Like a bomb, she's gone after the explosion.

Beautiful, brilliant, and bright. An absolutely wonderful piece. I can't even find the words to describe how much I truly enjoyed this piece. Definitely going into my library. 100/100
