Another Five Minutes

I like to write an introductory poem for my books. I did it for my first published novel. A few readers said it was cool… Their praise made me feel pretty awesome. So, now I do it for every book, you know, because feeling awesome is cool. Here’s the new one for my current work-in-progress. What do you think?


I feel time slipping away.

Will you please, please stay?



Give me five more minutes, please.

I am begging on my knees.



I fear losing you so much.

Promise me at least one last touch.



You belong to me, of course, you know.

And yet, there you go.



The emptiness instantly imprisons me.

Please, my love, return and set me free.



The silence and anxiety echo inside these walls.

With you gone, I am nothing, nothing at all.



My ache churns, my passion fueling hate into flames.

It is torture and death to endure such pain.



Come home so I may breathe again, my love!

Let me show you what we are made of.



One more chance for you is all I give.

Return to me if you want to live.



No other may have you, it's true.

When I die, my darling, so will you.



Five more minutes I delay for your sake.

An eternity it shall be before we wake.



You and I are one soul bound together.

Our love is forever.

Creative Corner Entry – Poem by Atharva, age 6

Beauty is…

Sun shining,
river flowing,
Birds singing
Flowers growing…

Beauty is nature
and Nature is beauty

to protect it
is our duty.

By Atharva M
at age 6

*Beautiful poem, Atharva! Thank you so much for sharing it with us!*

New addition to my creative corner!

Shattered

 

Those harsh words couldn’t have come from your gentle lips

We seem to bicker more than we kiss

Is there anything more shattering you could say

I give into it all as you walk away

 

You claim things have changed between you and me

Love is not a factor; and you ask “Can’t you see?”

My heart sinks deep and my ears won’t believe

When you answer my questions with “You should leave.”

 

I feel like a child scolded for being set in my ways

You stare down on me with your grown up gaze

I cant tell if it’s in anger that you push me away

Or if in fact you love me, and wish I would stay

 

Then you calmly utter words that you certainly know

Will deepen my hurt and force me to go

You say such love could never be true

As I give up everything to be with you

 

When my anger erupts you are mildly aware

That your words cut deep and my heart is bare

You lean over to me, sudden gentleness in your eyes

And say your sorry, but our love was all lies

 

I try to understand; I beg not to weap

My fear comes to surface; my trust goes in deep

Now left to question if I will believe it is true

And pray hate can replace my feelings for you

Why not write a poem this month?

April is National Poetry Month. Want to try your hand at a poem? Go for it! I would love to read it. You can send it to me at destinybooze@gmail.com.


Please, Say Please

By: Destiny Booze

 

A bump on the arm by a busy passerby,

Never looked back and I sigh,

Would a simple excuse me really hurt?

Has it become normal to be so curt?

 

Perhaps he didn’t feel the bang of our collision,

Or couldn’t stray from some mission.

Time is usually of the essence,

And tardiness, though common, results in penance.

 

Manners are rarer these days, it seems,

As individuals take the honor, and not the team.

Is family a word of lesser importance?

Will success become greater than accordance?

 

I want to hear please and thank you,

An excuse me, or a how do you do.

Please, say please and thank you,

If not for me, then for you.

Also, here is an introductory poem to my current Work in Progress:

Accelerating Circumstances

 

 

In a
moment of blindness,

She said
yes.

Anticipation
left her breathless.

 

That he
was a stranger,

Added to
the danger.

Excitement
outweighed any wager.

 

With no
thought or plan,

She went
with the man.

Exhilaration
heightened the night inside the van.

 

When they
came to a stop,

He got on
top.

Arousal
masked the gun’s sudden pop.

 

Every
thrust – a release of hate,

Coupling
with a lifeless mate.

Disappointment
was the murder, not perfect, not great.

 

Why did
she have to die?

Her
husband and son will later cry,

For a
wife and mother that went goodbye.

 

The
stakes accelerate for each kill,

Striving
for the lust of that first thrill.

The
disappointment and rage never-ending, until…

Motivational Monday – Judge Not!

BEST POEM IN THE
WORLD
~Author Unknown

I was shocked, confused,
bewildered 

   As I entered
Heaven’s door, 

Not by the beauty of it
all, 

Nor the lights or its
decor. 

But it was the folks in
Heaven 

Who made me sputter and
gasp– 

The thieves, the liars, the
sinners, 

The alcoholics and the
trash. 

There stood the kid from
seventh grade 

Who swiped my lunch money
twice. 

Next to him was my old
neighbor 

Who never said anything
nice. 

Herb, who I always
thought 

Was rotting away in
hell, 

Was sitting pretty on cloud
nine, 

Looking incredibly
well. 

I nudged Jesus, ‘What’s the
deal? 

I would love to hear Your
take. 

How’d all these sinners get
up here? 

God must’ve made a
mistake. 

‘And why is everyone so
quiet, 

So somber – give me a
clue.’ 

‘Hush, child,’ He said,
‘they’re all in
shock. 

No one thought they’d be
seeing you.’ 

JUDGE
NOT!! 

Remember…Just going to
church doesn’t make you

Christian any more than
standing in your garage makes you a
car.

Seeing the Truth

I write an introductory poem for my books. I found this poem that I wrote in high school yesterday. Book material? What do you think?

Seeing the Truth
By: Destiny Booze

Somewhere inside this darkness there must be a light,
But, struggling through the emptiness I am without sight.

Listening to loud whispers that drift freely in the air,
I reach out to touch what I know must be there.

With a renewed hope I rely on senses that sometimes prove to be untrue,
by bravely stretching out a hand into an endless fog to find nothing new.

People who see my sad condition can only react by being kind,
If only they knew, I am not blind…

Motivational Monday – Hope

Hope
By: KC

As one walks along the road of life
And trips upon a troubles strife,
We commonly cry and stumble a bit.
But we keep on going and will not quit.

This poem was sent into me for my creative corner. If anyone else would like to submit something, please email me at destinybooze@gmail.com

Addition to Creative Corner – Funny Face by Jake, age 7

Funny Face
by Jake, age 7 of MN

Funny face, funny face!

Stick out your tongue and wiggle your toes.
Cross your eyes and wrinkle your nose.
Raise your brows and tilt your head.
Give it your best and make your cheeks red.

Funny face, funny face!

Laugh until you cry.
Turn your voice up and say hi.
Share the grin.
That’s how to make a friend.

Funny face, funny face!

New Addition to My Creative Corner – Poems by Adam, age 8

Poems by Adam, age 8, of Virginia:

Oh! Jesus!

Oh! Jesus! Oh! Jesus!

The Lord of our birth.
Give us hope,
Never should we mope.
Give us love,
Like that of a dove.
Let your heart soar
And be smart about Jesus forever more.

Christmas!

I can’t wait, try with all my might.

Christmas snow so bright.
The most pleasant sight!
Go to bed quick,
Don’t be slick,
Get your goods from ol’ St. Nick.
