Falling wall

By: Ashlee Zlotnick

As your word slowly pierce my chest
I try my best to breathe.
Take me over, be my guest.
I dare you to try but don’t grieve.

You don’t understand the strength needed
to please someone who can’t be pleased.
To feel your mission’s not completed
To feel like you not better than a disease.

I guess even the strongest wall
will eventually give in.
Everything will surely fall
and the best wall standing will win

Safe to say my wall has collapsed.
I’m taking in all the dust.
I’m so tired of all your attacks
but that’s what happens when you lose all trust.


Goodbye poetry

By: Ashlee Zlotnick

My back’s sore.
My shoulder hurts more.
My head wants to explode
because I’m in overload!

My heart is numb.
I cannot begin to sum
up the thought of it’s over
and I never have to look at Dover

Beach was the one poem
another was about some kid at home.
Turns out it is time to say goodbye
to learning poetry for now…sigh
