so i’m thinking of applying to a school that has different fine arts as its main focus and i was going to apply to the creative writing part. it asks for 3 or 4 poems in the admission and i was wondering if anyone thought that these are good enough to even be considered for this place.
Out Of Consciousness
Like shadows of guilt
consuming the sky’s famed gaze
we were eternal
Are they real?
Or are we really searching under galaxies,
falling behind planets?
When our dreams turn orange
and our nightmares are shown to the world
with each breath we exhale.
They’re caving in on me.
Leaving a blood soaked floral masterpiece
in the wake of the orchestra
bidding its adieus
to me and you.
You’re simply me
stuck under tear bathed euphoria.
I still can’t see through
the hologram that floats in your eye sockets
and lingers under the tip of your tongue
when you say that you wish you would disappear.
How to Save a Life
The sky used to be so blue
but all of our dreams fell
and the mellifluous hum
that played from sun stricken waves
turned into thrashing clashes
produced from underwater manuals of how to save a life.
We classify the wounds crawling under our skin as suffering.
And heavy souls as dead weight.
We remain influenced
by tales of hope and rehab
but still live in between self sustained window panes.
Our airwaves are shared.
And we never fall underway of complete idleness.
