Get, Got, Gotten.


I’m accustomed to nice things,
Like purple ribbons and blue balloons.
He crept up during the night,
With flashing lights and silver spoons.
A good night combed my hair straight through,
But it left the comb twisted and tangled.
He’s always watching from the corner,
The corner’s watching from an angle.
He tempts me with glimpses of dusk,
Hoping that I’ll take a long walk.
He’s betting I’ll have a nervous breakdown,
But my breakdowns refuse to talk.
The shadows often come to spy out the land,
Sometimes I can even hear them creeping.
They know the sunshine can’t reach the garden,
And they know the vegetables are full of secrets.
They tried to catch me on a spaghetti night,
But I knew it all too good and well.
The windows and doors sealed themselves shut,
And my sweet tomatoes will never tell.
I see him peeking through a window,
But I don’t find his looks intimidating,
Because my eyes are also a glowing bright red,
And the weight on my shoulders is twice as heavy.
My soul set out like an armed navy ship,
Refusing to suffer such a shameful defeat.
My soul crushed like an armed navy ship,
Under the weight of his massive seas.

This poem reminds me of Tonight, Tonight by Hot Chelle Rae for some reason. :) By the way, I just don't like that song. I like the voice of the dude but the song has no rhythm, it's weird and stereotypical.

I see what you mean. You need a space in between the first two lines and the rest of the poem, it'll make it much better. :)

I see what you mean but the first 2 lines set the stage for the rest of the poem.

Weird... My favorite lines are the poem are the first two lines but the two lines and the rest of the poem don't really make any sense together at all. Sorry!

What do the first two lines have to do with the rest of the poem?
