Poem - 017

Created By Kaliyah Myers

Poem - 017, Marshmallow Blizzard

We stood in the blizzard together,

Our half lanterns beaten by the weather.

Your ember was just a flicker,

My ember felt even littler…

But standing by you,

I could feel the warmth it once gave.

We’ll hideout here in a cave…

As I connect my half to yours,

The lanterns unite as one and the flame-

It grows and not in vain.

Fear tells me that glass will soon shatter.

But seeing you tells me that doesnt matter.

Your goofy smile…

A distraction from the long, cold, while.

The small white pillow you placed on a stick,

Burning the sugar over the flame like a wick.

Trying it, I couldn't help but think about it…

Just how well we seem to stick.

- Kaliyah Myers, a Poem to a soon to be book named, The Mad Project

    Cute and sweet rhymes, you've got such a knack for creating imagery with your words. Just change "in vein" to "in vain" for spelling purposes. But I love the ooey gooey nature of this read!

    good story

  • Dee Morrison19 days ago

    I love it and I love the way the marshmallows are described as "small white pillows" too - fab!

  • I loved this - resonated deeply and really evoked so many sensations of what ‘love’ can feel like. X

  • Gal Mux21 days ago

    Very romantic and the rhyme is really catchy.

    Really lovely. Was it by any chance inspired in part by the animated movie "Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return?" The marshmallow love scene (and accompanying song!) helped me through some hard times, over a girl from Wisconsin in fact so I guess she knew all about blizzards! This poem really brought back to me that year in my life, and long ago as it was (2014) it was like living it again. Thank you for that experience! I'm sure others reading your poem will likewise remember something happy - or maybe I should say, something sweet!
