Best Poem of Cheryl McDonnell

Answers On The Wall

Come on jump right in
Your so shallow I won't drown
Summer she engaged her pain from within
Serves as a warning to his cheshire grin

She painted her answers on the wall
In symbols meant for the tall
The tv set echoed a lament
As a tribute to what she did paint

This wall sounds hollow
Like behind it a room could follow
Magazene clippings of faces
The waves of nothing her ship embraces

She painted her soul on the wall
Nothing here for you anymore
Go away now summer and hide
The shadows grow close behind.

Bird Of The Small Hours.

When the air was silent
And the trees slept still
No wind a whispering
It’s sullen winter chill
A song cuts the silence
Into ribbons of hope
Dancing in the crescent’s light
Keeping me afloat.

[Hata Bildir]
