The Hound and other poems by Jessica

this is a poetry anthology I started in my English class. My poems are pretty random and mostly G-rated but there is one that might be pushing that rating a little, so I'm just putting a warning about that here. If you don't like death/Implied suicide, don't read the poem titled 'The Fall'.

Now let's do this poetry thing!


3. How I read a poem

I take a poem and lull it to sleep

Its nonsensical babble


As it's cries quieten

The meaning is almost clear.

I hold it in my arms

As almost in the grasp of sleep

 It leans forward

And murmurs in my ear

A secret

Almost missed.

I smile to myself

And turn off the light.

Put the poem to rest

 And it sleeps through the night.
