Acrostic Poem: United We Stand

United We Stand

Under the stars
never doubting
invisible; we plan
toward an
end goal
deliverance

Wedding in secret
eloping they call it

Soon maybe even tomorrow
tomorrow isn’t soon enough
a heart can only wait so long
never denied
determined to be wed

-Poem by Justin Germino

Between U and I – a Guest Poem by Alexander Jackson

Today we feature a guest poem submitted to us by Alexander here on Wanderer Thoughts Poetry.

 

Between U and I

a guest poem by Alexander Jackson

for Suzanne

 

Somewhere you must be

Beyond a wall

Past the orchard

Where our children played

In the open field

Between u and i

Where they grew strong

 

Somewhere you are

Never looking

At the faded thing

That lay between

U and i

On those hot nights

When your single

Eye tore through my soul

Shone until

There was no more

U or i

 

Somewhere you must be

         Beyond that wall

Asleep beside me

         Just past the garden,

Dreaming like a child

 

I would climb

The wall’s too high

Cross the field

Morning’s coming

Call your name

In tearing wind

 

Somewhere you are

I know I could

Say your name,

But I’ve loved

Your vast silence.

Would reach out

Touch your almond

Skin and vanish

And there would

Only be

U and i

 

Still, at the

End of the day

I am right

Oustside. Don’t

You remember?

The man who

Braved the wall,

The orchard,

The field.

 

But really…

 

What lies between

U and I

Is only

This prayer

That you will

Open your eyes

Come down stairs

And let me in.

Poem: Cannot Exist

Cannot Exist

I cannot touch

I have no body

I cannot scream

I have no face

I cannot breath

I have no mouth

I cannot see

I have no eyes

I cannot smell

I have no nose

I cannot hear

I have no ears

I cannot think

I have no brain

I cannot exist

-Poem by Justin Germino

Acrostic Poem: Know Me

Know Me

Knot of pain
Noose of loss
Open sorrow
Worried

My time nears
End

-Poem by Justin Germino
