Wake Up

Wake Up

A Poem by Christopher Robin

A metaphor for relationships, the transparency of life, or just fun with words?


 Wake Up

So you’re sleeping and you’re breathing deeply

Dreaming seems to be completely

Free beneath the sheets you neatly

Squeeze between your feet you see me

Seething - I’m green with envy

Beaten - I’m feeling empty

Meant to vent pretentious energy

Ten percent depends on lethargy

Sent to gently dent your memory

Let’s pretend I’m less competitive

Anyway - you’re letting me settle this

In a way - you’re getting the benefits

Whether or not / it’s better forgot

You never can stop / the veteran’s plot

It’s very upsetting to bet if you’re lost

Remember vendettas forgetting the cost

Of Honesty - you’re learning to serve

Ferocity - it’s burning the earth,

Preferring to nurture the curse of the church

Referring to murders of persons of worth

Inferring that further deference is worse

Deterring occurrence of purposeful birth

Firstly - too nervous for words

Conversely - they’re perfectly served.

Bursting the limits of mirth is imminent

Curving the will of the verse is infinite

Sitting considering riddles and synonyms

Intricate symbols of intimate simpletons

Gentlemen - they’re trying to hide

Impotent - no fire inside

Blind to kindness kind of stifling

Try defining the lie - it’s trifling

Finding that kind of excitement expired

Inquire as to why all this spite is required?

I must say sir, that you have penned a fast paced snippet that was a pleasure to read. You get right to it and you hold the reader ins suspense. You use the very definition of every word to the best of your ability and play with each line. Rhythm, rhyme, flow, flawless. Grammar however... well it needs some commas toward the end lines and I find the font and size a bit taxing on the eyes. None the less, very good.
