Who Am I?

Who Am I? Christopher Denq 2010 I am someone who walks along side you Not someone who walks away On the darkest days, I’d make you laugh Comfort when your mind’s in sway I won’t judge a flower by its color Won’t mind sharing thoughts with you Will always remember…

Meandering

Meandering Christopher Denq 2010 At first, I sat here waiting Waiting for something unknown I stayed waiting for so long I sat in the dark alone Later on, I rose to my feet I started wandering about With no certain way, I walked Walked aimlessly with doubt But now, I…

Candle

Candle Christopher Denq 2010 A past time has abandoned me I mourn my loss alone They are distant, remote Only memories have I known How I wish them back To relive something gone But my wish – unheard Though like the steady dawn Light is the brightest Only once you’ve…

A School End

A School End Christopher Denq 2010 The end of our school It’s coming ever near Though it’s quite delightful I can’t help but tear For when this is all over None will be here I shall make the best Out of this year Graduation is over Let’s all give a…

Ten-Thousand Miles Away

They say a soul who ventures out Midst thunderstorm’s great sway Must burden in mind dire doubt And whose heart hardened clay But I knew a softer purpose To rectify my grave’s stay A mourner who weeps hereto Who Fortune love betray For perhaps her beauty costed For her now…

My Balcony Wish

I stole a moment there, that night Upon balcony with a list Against Gods, my voice waned white But scolded when told to whist I elucidated terms surely Yet all while clenched my fist I knew heaven powerless towards A lover too soon dismissed He coaxed me to grave forget…

Angel’s Sin

An angel birthed a heaven one day Rather, granted due her descence (descent) We all knew her maiden of stars But she, love’s belle hence I knew it a cold poison to adore And as sun’s time commenced My warm tenderness shuddered still And flowing fond’ condensed Gods must regret…

Lovely Hearthstone

It dawned a new day I hence saw her here Suns rise, but she a star higher Lost and found a tenderness for heaven – Or heaven’s belle, my misfire By morning’s glow, her grace traced grass paths And grew flowers of desire But mortals dote with a sweet honey…

On the Other Side of the River

On the silent riverbed, she stood Where the softer wind had blown Against the ground, she glistered the star’s light And eclipsed nature’s splendor grown Yet beauty tempted not my interest Though her allure gleams upon thrones But a sorrowful sound out her breath Revealed a sorrow unknown With the…

Bereft of Wings

An angel… by my seat-side I granted dither to believe You’d tell, too, if only you Saw the beauty I perceived What transgresses mortal allure: Celestial paragon’s reprieve She saved a lonely heart’s beat From ceasing ‘fore Death’s eve For forever I admired her But just as lame and naive…

Birthday Poem!

She found such joy in sprucéd dress; He prevailed against all those before Pokemon masters, nothing less And she an icon evermore Sixteen years you’ve been adored As toddlers and all to-progress (And while babies, I do so abhor You couldn’t have been that bad, I guess) So my celebratory…

Forever Yours, Eternity

“She had the face of an angel I saw mirrors in her eyes We were the same in aspect But different in our lies” -Alexandra Adornetto, Halo. For someone corrupted so deeply Soul tainted by potent ties I was surprised she choose me To befriend before she dies I was…

Talk: Lovely Hearthstone

It dawned a new day I hence saw her here A new beginning from the moment I saw her. Suns rise, but she a star higher Allusion to “it dawned a new day” – rising suns mean dawn; suns are stars, but she was a star (star ~ angel) that…

Thunder, Clouds, and Rainbows

Thunder, Clouds, and Rainbows Christopher Denq 2010 Thunder… Then faithful lightening Fast and bluely bright Sounds… Heavy and loud They ring the very night Clouds… Dark and ominous Sorrow – they guarantee Rain… Wetting and numerous Away they pound at me Thunder… Then distant lightening Both lulled to quiet peace…

Clouds

Clouds Christopher Denq 2010 I stand and I lie Down on the cool ground I face the blue sky And glance lazily around The wisps of puff White and fairly thin They drift so slowly And bring about the wind I want to leave behind All this and away float…

The Best “F” in the World

The Best “F” in the World Christopher Denq 2010 It’s near midnight, that I know But still I’m just lying here awake “Tomorrow’s the finals, hmm… I didn’t study, what a mistake…” The next morrow, I started out wrong No breakfast, for I slept in I missed the bus, too…

Penitentiary

I woke to the sound of my own sniffling. The incessant coldness that gnawed at my eyes and neck contributed, too, but it was more the sniffling. I was use to the feeling. A sable shadow struck across the room, casted from a jail window just above my head. Not…

The Metallic Floor

++++++++++The rain came down hard that night. – Not the kind of rain you’d hear splashing against your window but the hard, metallic rain – buffeting the hard, metallic floor. ++++++++++Only, it wasn’t a floor. ++++++++++It was a suit. Bullet-proof, standard A-67 U.S. infantry combat suit. It must have yielded,…

Shadow of the Night

++++++++++I sat against a tall tree upon a hill. It was a forest I was lost in, but I had no idea why so. ++++++++++The sun had long slumbered behind the mountains. Light was faint, and along my failing vision, I perceived a figure before darkness completely engulfed me. From…

You Are…

You Are… Christopher Denq 2010 You are… The beautiful moon pasted in the night sky A daring little white flower in a sea of red A new type of chocolate – bitter, but all the more sweet The simple pearl from diamond I would instead You are… The adventurous fish…

Kunai Knife

Kunai Knife Christopher Denq ~2009 Pulled quickly from a pouch Like a fish yanked out of water Held onto fast; grips firm Poised ready for slaughter Gliding through air Swiftly and serenely Sun shines off a blade Polishes and kept keenly The switch of the hand The power behind dive…

Valued

Valued Christopher Denq 2010 Now how should I start this long poem About something as stock as this? It’s simple, but thoughtfully made Stunned, how befitting it is! It’s not large amounts of money Nor bright gems that do not shatter But it brings immense happiness Now to me, that’s…

I Dream of Dreams

I Dream of Dreams Christopher Denq 2010 Another day… sleepless My eyes are darkening pale I lie awake on my bed Cold and bare… a jail Keeping me here imprisoned My bedroom curtains aren’t drawn It’s all dark in here while I think From the dark dusk to hereby dawn…

Your Absence

Your Absence Christopher Denq 2010 The waters shimmer delight-ly The sun shines brightly The world spins lightly But all this, precisely Is nothing without you The trees soften tenderly The leaves drift down slowly The colors of autumn warm me But fall is just death Without you to enjoy The…
