  1. That feeling you get
    When you get to class to find
    That there was homework

  2. Two poems today, one following this prompt, one following NaPoWriMo –

    I remember the cold wetness gliding beneath my feet,
    A cool breeze crosses my crimson cheeks.
    A Pennsylvania icicle drops from my porch,
    In old times it would call for some candles to be lit, possibly a torch.

    The crackle of frozen green grass,
    Is no match for the white laid on the ground reflective like glass.
    There’s a constant ambiance of howling trees,

    No longer a hum of honeybees.

    I long to see the vast fields of white,
    To thank it for providing my childhood, with endless light.

    I’m lost in my tunnel,
    In a sea of my mind now,
    The waves are angry.

  3. Fright is a monster
    Imprinting into your soul;
    Creeping in your veins

  4. High above their arms,
    are reaching down to grab me.
    Shadows haunting me.
