A Short But Meaningful Relationship.

I was looking at people poetry on the web, and i found this one, And i personally really liked it. I think it has like a meaning and somewhat of a truth to it. And it gives pretty great details.I think its cute. I wanted to share it with you guys. Its by Genevieve M., Roslindale, MA.




Having a beautiful brown-eyed boy

Tell you he loves you

In Spanish

In the back seat of a gray car

With a red interior

And his uncle driving

And your best friend, his cousin

Grooving to the new U2 tape

Oblivious in the front seat.



Hurry, faster, time is rapidly shortening

Use it wisely, fool

Four days, and Puerto Rico

Place of interminably waving waters

Snowless - screaming with sunlight

Steals him back.



But for now

It must wait.



We slide through the soundless midnight streets

Dotted with colored stars of Christmas lights

Wrapped in the protective shell of Bono's voice

Life is unusually kind today.

Re: A Short But Meaningful Relationship.

Part of what makes this poem so great is the writer brings the reader to the moment with the visual of the car and who is in it. Mentioning U2 playing brings another dimension to the poem, the dimension of sound. Anyone familiar with U2 will automatically start hearing a U2 song, perhaps not even realizing it.

To reiterate, thanks for sharing!
