Poem: Pin-prick

Star-light, like the sparkling shards of a shattered trinket
Caught in Freeze Frame
Strewn across the sky, in some unrecognizable pattern
As if to elude our comprehension

All I knew, and all I feared, I see in the beautiful, cold indifference of a liquid black sky
One pinprick of light, looking back at another

This is one more in my typical Style. Not as popular, but more satisfying somehow. I borrowed the last line from another poem that I wrote. I just can’t find it

I see these poem posts, but don’t know what to say

My English Lit. teacher at college tried to get me to understand it, but she failed

Poetry isn’t for everyone, that’s for sure. I know very few people who actually read poetry. I guess it’s painting with words, finding unique ways of saying what you want to say, expressing how you feel

( while secretly aware of what a crock of s*** it is LOL)

They tried me to get to read the classics, but I just never really understood it

When I had an assignment, I picked the lyrics to a Metallica song, and got told I had to do real poetry.

To me that Metallica song is living poetry!

Agreed. Songs are good poetry put to music, hopefully in a powerful combination

See I tried to tell this tutor that!

I think she was actually offended because I wasn’t interested in her material

Luckily I got to do my final project on a book called Bird Song. Suggest a read, good book

Your tutor sounds like a fool. The line between song and literature is pretty blurry. One bleeds into the other

What is the book about?

It’s about WW1

Bit of a love story but tragic as you can imagine.

The author is very good

I liked it and I don’t read much if at all these days

I’m sure. I haven’t read a full book in years. I used to devour a novel in one day, now I doubt I would ever finish it. By the time I got to the bottom of the page, I had no clue what the top of the page was about
