A Simple Thing

A Simple Thing

A Poem by Kyra Owers
"

"That my friend is the magic of the movies" - Herman J Mankiewicz (Gary Oldman) Mank (2020) Directed by David Fincher

"

I spend day to day,

Looking at a blank screen.

Filled with no meaning,

Is this a natural thing?


Pinned down by a work-load of uncertainty,

Piling up my desk.

And being enraged with steaming stress,

Why am I being put through this miserable thing?


That’s when I look back on my experiences with cinema:

The times I’ve cheered, the times I’d regret,

And the showings I haven’t seen yet.

It’s quite a beautiful thing.


From the action and thrill of it all,

And lounging back into my seat.

It’s nothing compared to the escapism I get,

From any worrying thing.


But now, I find myself here,

Staring at this screen.

But when I think of cinema,

It is the only thing.

Author's Note

Kyra Owers
A poem from a homework task, I based it on the stress that I was facing during online school and how I wished to be back at a cinema and watch a film. I do hope in the coming months, cinemas will reopen and we will all be able to go back to the movies after a rather long intermission.

Piling up my desk.

Why am I being put through this miserable thing?
