A Poem by Zackery Alan Daley
"

Random off the top of my head s**t. Title was not predetermined but I have a stash of song/poetry titles.

"

This dream will end I tell myself...

Only problem is I'm awake in hell.

South-Western prophecies and predictions.

I could never tell the difference.

"So just go with it".  They say,

I would rather die today.

 

Troubled thoughts, and the self-esteem to match.

I'm just another crazy eighteen, ready to catch,

Stack up against the odds, the frowns, the town...

I'm my own man now mother, no longer your bragging rights clown.

 

Dragged out, I see the light.

Her name is Lilly and her eyes so bright,

They diminish the stars, comparable to nothing.

Reflecting moonlight makes them that much more.

Will you kiss me before it's too late?

Not for me, but for our sake.

Trying so hard to be cute,

I don't feel sorry for what I'm going to do.

 

They say I can tell the future.

I saw it and you are not going to like it,

because it is exactly what happened.

You found religion three hours after the backseat began,

You thought it was me, but Johnny H. snuck in.

He was seeking you virtue, Zacky D. your love.

I can tell be the way the pull and tug,

Inside my head it's always going on...

A nightmare I can't wake from,

A world in peril, a boy the same,

Though eighteen, still a tangerine.

 

I'll make a man of me...

I feel like the rhyming in this poem is distracting me too much from its content. I like the themes and the images, and the overall message, but I feel that it could be better with a little more structure and rhythm (rhythm, of course, being a quality separate from rhyming).

the urban beauty of the poetic sprawl brings to gorgeous graffiti atmosphere maturity spreading itself in hues while some aspects of thoughts are rooted in childhood~ love the exotic brand of word usage and candy slang~ works perfectly~ that last line is like a double edged sword~ leaving an enigmatic aura for the reader to interpret~perhaps even personalize~
