Daisies

Published: September 2015

When I see daisies,
Memories I recall
Of a game I learned when
I was oh so small.

Plucking each petal one at a time.
He loves me, he loves me not, he loves me,
I sang every line.

Happy, carefree in the midday sun.
I felt engulfed in a world of joyous love,
Falling asleep when the day was done.

The world has changed,
And so have I.
As a teenager, I have become
Somewhat shy.

I wish I could wrap myself in a silk cocoon
And escape this middle school drama
Until early June.

Emerge a butterfly into the summer sun,
I would fly to the daisies
And have fun, fun, fun.

I really liked the poem. It really throws you back to childhood. Makes me remember when I was smaller. Your writing transmits feelings of melancholy and nostalgia so well. Wishing to go back in time to when everything was fun, an approach that I haven't seen before. As teenagers, we often dread becoming adults with more responsibilities, and yet here you wrote the other side of the coin, the one that wishes to go back. A great poem in my opinion.

Hi Mia, I am Jorge. I think it was a great poem and I could really understand what you were trying to tell the audience (teenagers). I'm experiencing the same and I really l related to you. This is the best poem I have read in a long time.
