Melissa Bates Poems
Hazy city lights filter into the atmosphere, It rests against the fallen lovers, They belong to a darkened world, Where the stars pierce the night,
Beautiful Road Kill
There’s a crimson splotch painted on the side of the road, Resting amongst the ruins of broken glass, Such a pop against the black and grey. This was not meant to be a final resting place.
Oh How Glamorous
The chains have broken and it appears I'm free, Free to do what, when all I have is nothing, My cherished bond strained till breaking, A friend lost to the real world.
Blue And White
The sheet in front of me is white and pristine, And like the year’s first snow, I anticipate its defilement with glee. Deriving an instinctive pleasure from it,
I thought you had shattered my heart with your fleeces, And that I’ve been busy picking up the pieces. But in reality you’ve stolen it for you own, And someday you will use it as my gravestone.
Oh that perfect strum, As fingers dance along your neck, Hardened from your beauty, That man who can make you sing,
Oh that perfect strum,
As fingers dance along your neck,
Hardened from your beauty,
That man who can make you sing,
Could never understand,
The power he weaves,
The wisdom held in his hands,
On paper, so cold and calculating,
But in waves it soars,
