Please Miss Your Plane

Please miss your plane.

I’m breaking glass
Inside my head.

If I bang my head
Hard enough
And long enough
Into the wall,

If I throw enough jars
Around my room
And crash them into
Shards and hell,

Would you make
This be a dream.
Wake me up.

And then I’ll say
“I had a dream,
You had to go.”

And let me curl
And hold you.
Warm, protecting, safe, and strong.
“I had a dream but I was wrong.”

– Written by Anna V. Williams

    Makes for very gripping, uncomfortable reading. Very raw. This poem has a lot of emotional impact.

    I’m glad you put something up again that is yours, Anna 🙂

    Oh this is wonderfully done, written in a fragile, vulnerable voice and excellent images:

    “I’m breaking glass
    inside my head”

    and the last 2 killer lines. Very powerful word choices, Anna..:) Kudos!

    I’m sorry honey,
    I caught my plane.
    I had to go,
    though I’m to blame.
    I did it all for you my dear
    but in my heart and soul you’re here.
    but I’ll be back as soon I can
    and then I’ll say ’tis here I am.
    a crushing hug and warm embrace
    and once again a smiling face.
    So hush now honey don’t dispair.
    because for you i’m always there.

    Hi, nice poem. I am a english literature student. And could you tell something about the Rhyme scheme here and which rhyme scheme do you think is most beautiful

    Excellent creation! I can hardly think of any word to show my love to this poem. Every line makes me feel the feeling. “I had a dream but I was wrong.” Love the last line most.
