Poem 1- Falling Asleep

Under the covers, shifting left to right

Cannot seem to close my eyes

Thoughts invade, good and bad

Imagination runs wild

Running becomes tired

Eyes become heavy

Hard to hold on, to keep imagining


Lost to the dream world


Poem 2- The Dance Room

Laughter filled the room

And the ecstasy of it

Feet turning rapidly

Hands waving viciously

Pink tutus and black leotards creating a blur

Black and white keys echoing, creating a rhythm

The scent of lilacs in the window

Now, a pitch- black room

Dust, instead, dancing through the air

Wilted stems

Remains a distant memory of what it once was
