Biography of Andrea Rieck
I'm a 17 year old girl that loves animals (cats, rabbits, and foxes the most) , listening to music (Female-fronted metal, please) , and playing video games (Klonoa, Sonic, Pokemon, etc) . With a few exceptions (such as the poem, Solstice, which is about one of my old rabbits) , I like to focus my poems on 'deeper' subjects.
Andrea Rieck Poems
It's Autumn Again
It’s autumn again Leaves whisper the sound of our past In loss they pay a descent To the ground we fall
Lullaby For A Lonely One
Silence No prayers No songs No voices
On invisible wings, doth the moon rise bringing to the black and violet sky its faithful hue of magic bold, of life’s eternal dance It burns the skies with enchantment strong
Whispers (Watch Time Pass You By)
Grow to wither Laugh to cry Watch time pass you by…
It is after-dark The sun has descended and the sky has turned purple and black Now is when the shadow moves Under the light of the stars and a dimly lit moon
Here By The River
Here at the river I sit The sun is bleak And the clouds are low But beside me butterflies flutter to-and-froe
The Forever Performance
I feel I am on stage I feel them watching me I can’t leave this performance yard But why do they have to stay?
Solstice (Holland Lop Rabbit)
My rabbit’s gray ears are often sideways Bright and strong-showed dark bluish eyes are hers Her pinkish nose twitches in lots of ways Her glossy pelt is the softest of furs
Here in darkness on this cold midnight plain I see nothing as I wish, not a star I fight with feelings that I cannot contain For my hope lies shattered in a place so far
Every morning without delay The sun comes up and brings with it a new day A new chance to succeed A new chance to cry
There is nothing there for me Not any more It has vanished like the summer Or could it be it was never there
The Winter's Song
Where has the world gone? Under a blanket of white It’s time for winter’s song And it’s whimsical sight
My Sweet Insanity
My world is pink and black Made of paint and carpenter’s hats! Your world is dull and plain – Hail the living of the sane!
I’m the shadow that light casts away… I’m the smoke that came after the fire I’m the star that died the day it was born… The one that cried for it after
Are you afraid?
Just let your soul take flight
Take my hand
Forget your woes tonight
Look to the sky
Eternal vastness – our hearts home
Release your spirit
Let it roam
