Halcyon

This poem comes after a really long gap. I was more involved in writing stories and epiphanies for the past few weeks. It all depends on what I feel like, or what is going on in my life. It’s amazing if you think about it. I recently shifted my preference from rhyming poems to free verses. I’m not sure why. Let’s see. 

Laughter
Happy, cheerful giggles
The loud grins
Of a 50 children echoing
In a class of 51

Only one wasn’t present
His mind wandered
His vision lingered
Out the window
Around all the beautiful things
Phenomenal things
Marvelous things
That he hadn’t come to encounter
As yet.
And around that one being
He couldn’t get his mind off from
Who had told him about those things
The one
He couldn’t meet now.
Couldn’t be with.
Couldn’t forget.

Laughter
Happy, cheerful giggles
The loud grins
Of a 50 children echoing
In a class of 51
And the scene
Wasn’t a happy one.
