Piercing The Sky, A Book of My Poems
Author: Neil Evans

Chapter 25
No Rhymes

I was told to make a poem of rhymes, a poem of no rhymes, and try different types of poetry other than free verse. Well, this is a poem that was finished around 11 o'clock, July 27th 2010, and because it has no rhymes, it's called: No Rhymes

It's four in the morning,
You're sleeping alone,
I can see you breathing
Oh the joy of sleep,
I have been depraved
The world's against me
But I don't really care,
I just watch you,
And as I do, I whisper
Into your ear:
"You'll be safe, forever,
Nobody will take you away"

It's seven in the morning,
My eyes are bloodshot,
You're still sleeping alone,
But I'm here,
You'll be safe,
I stare out the window,
Hugging the glass for comfort,
The moon beams down,
And I can only help but think:
"You're mine, you won't leave,
And now I am your guardian,
Your love and your life."

It's nine in the morning,
The world's waking up,
And I look down at you,
The heaven in your eyes
Stares back up at me,
I smile and you smile back,
I'm nearly speechless,
So I only say to you,
"I love you."
