Calmity


*Note: The title is spelled incorrectly on purpose, you will see why as you read on...*

Midnight's inky blackness seeping in through the frosty windows
Stars sparkle merrily high overhead,
Dotting the cloaked sky with tiny bright ornaments,
Invisible, ignored, and unnoticed by one-
Deep clawing frustration, slumped in front of the hated paper,
Pencil in hand and quivering in hot rage-

Suddenly, a great, gentle sweeping of calmness settles above her head
Cooling and peaceful, contentedness she senses
Though she is still worming away deep inside,
She is bright-faced,
Ironically,
As if this tranquillity is only feigning for the certain knowledge
That all has been lost, a calamity striking,
And a sweet, blissful feeling of calmed desperation and despair...

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
