Most of these poems were written for class, so they've got some sort of thing I was supposed to do, but I think they turned out pretty well. Send any comments to Katryna7@hotmail.com. I'd really appreciate it! :o)
As a note, I like most of my poems to have some sort of pattern in them, which you'll notice if you read it. I like rhyming, having each line be the same number of syllables, or having some sort of repetition happening. And I'm also not too abstract. At least I don't think so. :o)
- 7 Seconds: Nearing the finish of a race. Has two alternate endings, but I prefer the nonhappy one.
- Anywhere But Here: The desire to get out a boring lecture. I did this really quick as an in-class writing assignment, but it rhymes! :o)
- Beauty Asleep: Altering the Sleeping Beauty fairytale.
- The Duel: It's a duel. (Yeah, I was real original when titling this one.) I wrote it while my teacher played some country-type instrumental music. :o)
- The Formation of a Symbiotic Relationship: A love poem having to do with my major (biochemistry); I actually sort of split it into bio and chemistry.
- The Girl: A bystander watches a couple in an abusive relationship. Had a long metaphor of the boyfriend being a wolf. My teacher then had me turn it into a Little Red Riding analogy (the non-kidified version) which was a pretty good idea.
- It Wasn't My Fault: A woman talks about her rape experience and how others say she brought it upon herself. Not sure exactly how I like this poem yet.
- Memories: An old woman thinks about what she still remembers. I think it's one of my better poems.
- The Monster Beneath My Bed--INCOMPLETE. I sensed it getting long, and never finished it. I probably should one of these days.
- The Monster Beneath My Bed Rhyming Version--INCOMPLETE. The rhyming was getting kind of hard, hee hee.
- Support: Written about a sculpture thingy my teacher brought into class. I think this is one of the poems she liked best (but then again, it might've been because her cousin made the sculpture).
- Time in Flight: A different take on a cliché.
- To My Grandfather: Kind of a letter to my grandfather. Partly fiction and partly not. My mom really likes this one for obvious reasons. ;o)
- Waiting for a Call: It's a poem in some sort of repeating line format, don't remember what it's called. Not too fond of this one, but I like the way it sounds if you say it out loud.
