  1. Demolished Light House

    Now that the people realize that they have forgotten Now that it’s too late for repairs Now that you and I stare at the crumbling bricks Whispering for no reason Now we realize that the old lighthouse we always took for granted is gone The old lighthouse that we dared each other to stay the night in You lasted an hour before something creaked and you ran shrieking home Now that the trees are gnarled like skeleton hands There are moments when I realize that we’ve wasted so much time in the pauses when neither of us could think of what to say Author's Note: This poem is inspired by the painting "Demolished Light House" by Julian E. Levi. Feedback and constructive criticism are appreciated and encouraged.

    The way you used language in this poem is really beautiful. The metaphors are neither too obvious or too hard to figure out and I think the details make the poem even stronger. The last line is so powerful.
