Thump-poem

Thump-poem

 

As I lay in bed last night
I dream of you and sleep tight
And in my dream, I got a thump
I felt a huge gigantic hump
Over my shoulders
I shed some tears
I am pushed away
And off I stay

The banging
And thumping
Continued
I cried
It pains
It hurts
Heavy
Steady

Woke up in a dream
Oh how my tears run in a stream
I painfully cry
I could die
That huge gigantic hump
I felt I got a thump
Was my heart beating in agony
You left me in dismay.

February’s Speculative Fiction Prompt

I wanted to write something about the elephant and the cute little mice in its literal sense, but I realized it would be so much fun to give this adorable elephant a different life and a different persona (so to say).

  19. I feel as if there is something here that makes the theme symbolic of something deep and painful. I may be reading too much into your poem, Mich. Either way it works well with the theme. πŸ™‚
