Cognac on the rocks was her drink of choice

Until about three in the morning, then she would bounce to bourbon

Both ice cold, just like the blood in her veins

Especially as she tossed the dice one last time with everything on the line.

After the bell rang, Clarice looked behind her.

No wings yet, but she kept her head held high.

Getting them would mean she hade made it

Everything came down to that moment in her life

Looking at the program she smiled and settled back

So many more chances as the handbells started their next song

School (an acrostic poem)

She wanted to learn everything

Cram as much of the information as she could into her cerebellum

Have the ability to recall things faster than Google

Obviously that wouldn’t be really possible

Or else there would already be that person in the world

Leaving her only one choice, stay forever where she could continue to try to be the first

Racing up through the atmosphere

On a giant plume of flame

Carrying a massive amount of explosive materials

Knowing a single spark in the wrong place could be disastrous

Ending everything in the blink of an eye

That view though, once the blue sky faded, always made it worth it

Teeth (an acrostic poem)

The gap in his grin was very off putting

Even though everything else was perfect

Eleanor tried to ignore it, to be happy, no thrilled, with all the rest

That proved futile since she kept finding herself focusing on it

His smile seemed to accentuate the piece of spinach stuck there

Break (an acrostic poem)

Been a long time since she had to bend that far

Reality was just that heavy upon her heart

Everything seemed like the worst of times

And all she wanted to do was somehow slip past to a light hearted moment

Knowing if she had to carry more then she would…

Stand (an acrostic poem)

Still there she was, even after he had left her

The universe was shattered, her everything was gone

And yet she was still upright

Now she didn’t know what to do, or how she would go on, but

Determined to not let him down, only then did she fall to her knees

Grace (an acrostic poem)

Give yourself a little space today

Realize that you are not perfect

And that no one in their right mind should expect that from you

Care for yourself and give yourself a huge mental hug

Everything might not be okay, but you can still grant yourself a little…

Fix (an acrostic poem)

 

Finding all the things that are wrong can be depressing

It can make you want to just throw everything out and get something new

X that idea out, sit down with your list, start at the top and rebuild it and make it yours
