A Poem, No More Pins

I wrote this poem yesterday, and it is written from an interesting perspective. It is a doll that knows its purpose but does not want to be punished for wrongdoings anymore. I anticipate the pinsSharp with pain, it pierces meNow the healing beginsMy lips sewn shut but still I pleaI don’t want to feel thisContinue reading “A Poem, No More Pins”

A Haiku, The Critters

I was creek fishing a few years ago, and I cast my line upstream and noticed what looked like a skinny log coming towards me. I stepped to the side to let it pass by and saw it slither in the stream. It was a snake. I said to myself, “hmm, that was interesting,” andContinue reading “A Haiku, The Critters”

A Poem, Pluck These Strings

I wrote this poem yesterday. It just came to me out of nowhere, so I just decided to go along for the ride. It follows the grueling grind of a puppet’s life and its personal struggle. With a tug and pull, I’m brought to lifeI’ve danced for peasants and kingsI do not want to liveContinue reading “A Poem, Pluck These Strings”

A poem, The Angel’s Wings

Dramatis Personae: Two entities face unique precarious positions. One is a man who is both figuratively and physically at the summit of his life. The mountain of failures of his life is tall, and he is standing on the very edge of his existence. The second is an angel tasked with helping a man similarContinue reading “A poem, The Angel’s Wings”

400 Followers!

I hit 400 followers yesterday! With that being said, I’ll open up a little bit more about myself by sharing a fun fact again. Fun fact: For most of my life, I’ve been told that I have a babyface, so I grew a goatee in my early twenties to shake that perception. I don’t see itContinue reading “400 Followers!”

A Haiku, The Earthquake

I figured I did a tornado haiku, so why not do an earthquake haiku, haha! The 2nd line of this has a double meaning when you think of it. The Earth has faults, as do we, and sometimes they collide. Plates shift, the ground quakesThe faults of the Earth collideMankind plays its part Let meContinue reading “A Haiku, The Earthquake”

A Poem, The Werewolf

And now I’m going to venture back into the macabre, dark poetry side for a moment. In this poem, I wrote about one of my favorite mythical beasts growing up, the werewolf. I grew up on movies like The Wolfman, The Howling, Silver Bullet, Wolf (Jack Nicholson), An American Werewolf in London, and Teen WolfContinue reading “A Poem, The Werewolf”

A Haiku, The Cold

I let my dog outside this morning and stood on the porch looking over the frozen yard. The sun was poking through onto some parts of the yard melting the frozen dew. The melting happened so quick. I walked down my driveway and back to my porch, and it was gone. It was almost asContinue reading “A Haiku, The Cold”

A Haiku, The Vibrant Lives

A Poem, Inspirational Mentality

It’s been a little while since I’ve wrote an inspirational poem, so I wrote this last night. Go ahead, continue to sit thereThinking circles in your angry chairAnger toils as you dwell and glareErase that lugubrious face you wearWhat good does this hate give?What does your festering madness solve?Look upon thyself to forgiveDon’t wallow inContinue reading “A Poem, Inspirational Mentality”

A Haiku, The Sun

So here is another spring haiku that I wrote this morning. It is in the 50’s today, and it’s easy to notice the impact the sun has on dormant life. Dormant life renewedThe sun kisses God’s creaturesExuberance reigns Let me know what you think!Thanks for reading!Travis Travis J. McRoy 2021 All Rights ReservedImage by Tim Hill from Pixabay
