I Am. By CpSingleton © 2014

I am red and yellow,
Blue and green. And
Every shade that’s
In between.

I’m a swallow tumblin’
To the ground.
I’m a treasure that is
Never found.

I’m a drip from a
Far-off tap.
I’m the purring
In your lap.

I’m a loud sneeze
In a church.
I’m a kite trapped
In a birch.

I am Fagan with
A purse.
I am Satan’s final
Curse.

I am a drunk who’s
Always merry.
I am June and also
Terry.

I am spring with
Flowers bright.
I am winter:
Dark as night.

I am answers with
Question.
I am severe in-
digestion.

I am swings swooping
In the sky.
I am an eyelash in an
Hidden eye.

I am you and you are
Me.
I’m a prisoner. I am
Free.

Each and every shattered
Glass.
Every lad and every
Lass.

All the souls in crippled
Thought.
All the bubbles you
Have caught.

I am tired day and
Night.
I’m the yawn that signals
Fight.

I am every eye and all your
Hands.
Now let me hear the voice who
Understands.

About Chris42

I am a liar! A maker-uper of stories! If this was the 16 (c) I'd be burned as a witch. Fank goodness it is not, eh?! I have four children: two wonderful girls, a fantastic lad and Leeds United. I have no strict genre. I write children's poetry and stories, to edgy, stronger themes. Up until now I have stored them for my own and my family's viewing. Last year i thought bugger it and starred in several short films. One, Playground, which is on the BBC Film Network, used the monologue that I wrote for the audition. You should've seen the face of the receptionist, of the Manchester hotel, where the audition was being held, as I turned up dressed as the psychopath, Gordon. It got the desired effect! I then moved up to Cumbria and wrote and appeared in several live performances on stage. 2012. A local artist, Kayleigh Richardson, commissioned me to write a poem for her to paint a representation. I sent her, The Rise of the Robot Monkey Army. Kayleigh painted a fantastic piece that blew my mind! From that we are collaborating on the Jacob Bear series of stories. Oh and Two's Company is to published, along with seventeen other Sci Fi short stories as part of a collection. Not a bad start to the, so called, last year of the Earth. Now is the time to show the rest of you. I take my themes wherever i see them, whether in reality or dream-world. I hope you enjoy. If not tell me why. If so tell me why. Many thanks and be safe. So far I have published: Jacob Bear's first Christmas,https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007GK872A (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007GK872A (USA) Jacob Bear Goes to School https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007JD3OKY (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007JD3OKY (USA Jacob's First Words https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007VZWPSC (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007VZWPSC (USA) Space Here https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007H96M90 (UK) &http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007H96M90#reader_B007H96M90 The Rise of the Sponge Cake Moon https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007WWZ16M (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007WWZ16M (USA) © Madstoffa, 2012.

  2. Awesome poem and rhythm! Loved the line-breaks, especially in this stanza, created such a sense of rhythm:

    “I am you and you are
    Me.
    I’m a prisoner. I am
    Free.”
