Forward from the Author Dear Reader, This book of “feelings” doesn’t really describe my feelings rather it’s a reflection of the feelings my friends think I have. To be honest this is a satirical book made to entertain the thoughts of my friends. Based off of this it’s safe to say most of these will be about feelings whether it’s in their “deeper meaning” or in plain sight. In all actuality, I’m not very emotionally connected to these poems through personal experience but I’ve observed others who seem to be experiencing these feelings. Through these poems you’ll go through a journey of feelings mixed in with natureand might help you find your feelings, I’ve included mostly a variety of different feelings to experience and to view as I view them.

The leaves fall down now How majestic to see these? Flee away restlessly.

Ocean breeze omen Wailing dark unspoken Failing fire open

Slippery snow shows Soon cold goes below Hello, to the, sickly noon

Villanelle Five Devices A1 Keeping our eyes as bright as the sun b Shining clearly, seeing the rays of light A2 Realizing life has just begun a The end expected in everyone b For this ride of life, we must hold on tight A1Keeping our eyes as bright as the sun a Away in the distance towards the future I run b Stopping as the ground trembles in spite A2 Realizing life has just begun a Living in the present I believe in the long run b Things will still work till we fulfill what's in plain sight A1 Keeping our eyes as bright as the sun a On the other side my past is gone b New things to create knowing we'll be alright A2 Realizing life has just begun a This feeling bring upon a new dawn b Inside us this fire has just begun to ignite A1 Keeping our eyes as bright as the sun A2 Realizing life has just begun

Limerick Rhythm

I was biting an apple one day  When suddenly I fell into the bay Along came a wave I was unable to save My life was swept away From the sky, a lightning strikes Up above hit a man on his bike The wheels swerved He ended in a curve After all work, he decided to hike


13

Ode Apostrophe & Epithet A1. Coffee, bitter bless, sensation b. What wakes me up a Why are you such an addicting creation c. In my life you are that bump b. It's unhealthy to have more than a cup a With you I have no hesitation b You're even better than a darling pup c Taking me out of damnation a I can't resist the temptation b But it seems we have to breakup c I must say goodbye and make the jump A1. Coffee, bitter bless sensation


14

Sonnet A . A difficult task to do, no control B . Shall I perform this alone, if only I knew A . Ending in destruction, leaving a hole B . A story to be told one, dear and true C . Like the wind it comes and goes, that feeling D . What's within a mind unknown, believe it C . After these years its now that I'm seeing D .That unlike a puzzle we do not fit E When we're together the sparks are like fire F Burning instead of blazing, becoming ash E I turn to see you but eyes don’t reach higher F And like water and oil our mixtures clash G I aspire to be more, left you behind G No weight on my shoulders, no longer blind


15

Free Verse Imagery What a choice to make Between and rock and a hard place If I tell the truth This situation, I wish I could erase

Should I speak Should I hope It's not seen Remains unknown

Like wildfire in my mind Racing to no end


16

Author’s Choice My mind is as light as a feather Flowing in the wind Gravity can’t hold it down But the thoughts swim around

My mind is as dark as the night At times, light seeps through Not enough to brighten the thoughts That continue to swim around

My mind is but at times it isn’t What is it that my mind should be
