SMILE

If only you knew
How much I smile
In ways it’s a gift
But you wouldn’t know

Only so many
Reccieve a smile
One in genuine companship
And you sir
Are one of the few

When I wake
Chriping birds and sun
Place the first upturn
But when I see you
My smile lasts all day
All the bad is washed away

Letter Poem (Smartphone vs Humankind)

FWD: HUMANKIND

You poke and prod
and tap my life away.
You hold me dearly
on occasion drop me;
thankful for my rubber case
my glass heart protected.

I’m sick of being held
fingers tapping my keys,
can’t I go on break now?
I’ve been working for how long?

Can’t you just let me stream,
kick up my stand
and let the videos play?

Drained of energy,
I feel sick
from the motion of these games.
Whoever thought it to be thrilling,
to tilt left and right
while Doodle jumps?

Your parents are annoying.
They remind me
to tell you to start dinner.
Don’t get me started
on your friends
their infinite texts,
or your alarm that wakes me up
telling you to be on your way.

In the mornings I just want to tell you,
to beg,
five more minutes.
But you unplug my charger
as the day again wears me out.
I shut off.

Life just can’t go on,
I need some me time.
You’re the clingy person in this relationship,
the one that suffocates.
I’m telling you this for your own good.
It’s you not me.
Try and get on without,
it’s just not healthy, for your world
to revolve around me.

Sincerely,
Smart Phone

RE: Smart Phone

Get used to being held.
I have paid too much
not to touch you
every single moment.
You are my child,
listen to me.
Follow my commands
don’t freeze up,
don’t you force close apps,
don’t shut down randomly
like a power outage.

I can tilt you all I want.
Don’t think you have rights.
My friends are more important
than your feelings.
Jeez I thought you were an android
not a feeling-bot.
There better be a recall.
You’ve offended me
plus your attitude,
is not appreciated.
When I hear Smartphone
I don’t want a Smartmouth.
I’ll detach your battery
then you’ll be sorry.

Sincerely,
A Member of Humankind

FRAGRANCE OF BEAUTY

I am but an empty bottle of air freshener,
sprayed till there is no more.
I fill the air
with illusions
and mysteries.
My scent for all to breathe,
full of blooming lilacs, ground ginger, and laundered linens
there to reject,
as if I was a blown out wick
with steams of billowing smoke
that shady grey cloud misunderstood.
But who will bother with me?
A mixture of incenses
confusing the nose–
No one cares
but what you see is not what is.
For my fragrance is potent
yet many people remain congested
of such pleasantry.

I wish one were to smell,
someone to know
to see me like a glimmer shines in a diamond
but I am that one unidentified,
to be mystified over.
So it shall be,
the glorification and beauty
of all there is to wonder.
