Peculiar Poetry

Poetry with and without reason and rhyme.
Strange is what I strive for.
Expect lyrics and limericks, free verse and format.
Be prepared for bubbly and boiled, terrifying and horrifying.
Keep an eye out for those that provoke your thoughts, and some that bear no thought at all.
Many written for class, and others without much of it.
Feel free. There are no boundaries. Just think.
Consider, Ponder, Wonder, Imagine.
Argue, Oppose, Debate, Defend.
Perhaps you will be offended.
That's good.
Think about that.
Learn more of what you think.
How you think.
Take what you can from what you hate.
I don't seek to preach.
I only speak my mind.
A mind most peculiar.


4. "Sleep"

I do want to sleep, but I don't. 

It's not that I can't,

I just won't. 

Too much to consider, 

So much that my mind 

Cannot keep from whirring 

As would a turbine. 

Lyrics to songs that I want to create,

My brain up and running for an ethics debate.

Black notes with stems that entwine in the staff

Rise and fall like the line of a graph. 

Images in my head that my hands yearn to make 

I have stories to write too! 

You see? I must stay awake!

I want to do all of these things, and more 

Once the sun has gone down, not a minute before. 

Never the day,

Always night. 

And I try to force it with all of my might.

I should be resting,

People say that I need it.

Such helpful advice...

Yet I rarely heed it.

Why must my mind run so wild and free 

Once midnight ticks by 

And I have to sleep?
