SAMPLE POEM

YOU WERE GOING TO BE A GREAT POEM

 

 

I began to write the poem

In my head the moment

Our eyes met across

The crowded room.

 

My mind worked overtime, beginning

To imagine the ways you could

bring my body to ecstasy.

 

My eyes undressed you, slowly.

Pealing away the layers of your

Gruff exterior. One Fubu item at

A time. Leaving only a pair of Tim’s

And a smirk.

 

Your body rocked side to side to

The beat as I turned on a little

Hip hop charm hoping to catch your eye.

 

As the disco ball spun above our heads,

I couldn’t get you back home soon enough,

Brief goodbyes, a walk to the car, and a quick

Drive home brought us to that dark wooden

Table where we got lost in sweet talk and a

Fat blunt you rolled with your bare hands.

 

I closed my eyes and braced

Myself for what I imagined would

Be a sinful night of cholo loving,

My hips couldn’t stay still as you

Moved onto the bed next to me.

I held my breath and I grasped at

The bedsheets at my side as you

Parted your lips to say something.

 

You asked for a towel. It had only

Been three minutes and you were

Finished before I could even take my

Clothes off and join the party.

 

You were going to be a great poem

But I don’t write anything shorter than

Three minutes.
