The Crash

The Crash

A Poem by Jared Michael Smith

Just another poem created from the random lines of text that popped into my head.

Shining eyes,
Like a fly's,
Speeding down
The highway.


Metal toys,
Buzzing noise,
Louder louder
Every day.


Faster faster,
Until there
Comes a crash.


Staining red,
Mounting dead,
The bright and
Blinking flash.

Jared, I liked the form and I liked the use of onomatopoeia in this piece. Driving on the freeway always freaks me out. This is why. Thank you for submitting and congratulations for placing in this contest. Nicely done. Angi~

If I may, I fully object with this as crappy. No, it's not! I REALLY, REALLY, AWESOMELY enjoyed it! It is unique, it is original, and it is beautifully peculiar. I honestly believed it popped from your head because it flows very naturally. I LOVE this. I hope I made it crystal clear with this review. :)

I'm a pretty mild-mannered guy who enjoys composing poetry, playing video games, and drawing portraits. I don't think my writing's that good, but some of the people I have had read tell me otherwise... more..
