Guest Poet Meredith Reeves
Reality of a Night
Indentations of harmless schooling
consumes the incest of emotion and sanity.
Heavens prevail into seeds
held within fingertips,
waiting to be planted.
The whisper of a nightfall
reveals timeless secrets
and raw tears.
He spoke a lie of unwrong,
the mirror image of power
overtaking my life in a single moment.
My powerlessness bleeds onto his hands,
and judgement of Sodom
will reign into the next infinity.
I take back those tears,
those painful nights of my kingdom
crashing before the glazed eyes
I call fine.
I unveiled what he was blind to.
My weak strength,
I now own my kingdom,
with the smile of God
buried into the soil
beneath the tulips of reality.
Growth of a new being,
the heart of a child,
has now begun against human weakness.
Meredith Reeves's Questions:
1. How can I change the structure of the poem in order to add effective
2. Is there anything that is completely confusing or out of context?
