Silver-blue and exquisite
they pour from a summer sky
drowning the night with a heady perfume
daring me to fly
soaking the world in their milky light
the moonbeams slip softly down
I can almost taste them,
but instead I write.

Deanna Coghlan Claim this poet

I am a reformed, homeschooled, 16 yo christian. I love reading, tree climbing, sad songs, sad poems, and mushy poems. I love working hard with friends, listening to sufjan stevens, the eagles, aerosmith, over the rhine, iron and wine, the postal service, and I hate working alone. I hate spiders, centipedes, and any other bugs with a lot of hair, legs or general body mass. I love earl grey tea, windy days, grassy fields, and creeks. I love wandering, and hopping fences. I love hugs when I'm sad, and kisses when I'm not. I love knives, and I like guns, and I love verbally slapping down uppity teenage boys, and making my friends laugh with a good (or bad) joke. I hate finding out that someone doesn't like me, or that I don't like them. I always like knowing exactly where I stand with my friends. And I will always write poetry. more…
