Poe and his Raven… (rerun)

Mr. Poe and...

Mr. Poe & his Raven

Mr. Poe
was quiet distressed
even though
he did his best
he never could
get any rest
the bird
was just
relentless

the raven
cawed both
day and night
gave all the neighbors
quite a fright
but didn’t
care for them
at all
the bird
enjoyed
relentless

Mrs. Poe
spoke
very slow
she said the bird
would have to go
but Poe stood strong
and said oh no
he can’t help
he’s
relentless

I love the raven
he’s my friend
I’m sticking by him
till the end
on this one issue
I won’t bend
it’s okay
he’s
relentless

now leave me woman
I must write
before the dawn
bursts forth with light
the bird won’t let me
sleep tonight
because
he’s
so
relentless

the raven looked
at Poe and said
what’s going on
inside your head
I’m sitting here
within your view
don’t you know
what you should do
it’s not that
I don’t care for you
it’s just that
I’m
relentless

I’m tired raven
can’t you see
THIS is what YOU
do to me
you never stop
you always caw
you truly
are
relentless

Poe got up
reached for the door
the raven dropped
down to the floor
you love me
just the way I am
you know you
like
relentless

goodnight my friend
my body’s sore
I’m sorry that
I’m such a bore
I’m off to bed
to get some sleep
please
don’t
be
relentless

the raven stopped
and shook his head
yes do go on
it’s off to bed
but sleep
won’t come
for you
old friend
because
my
name’s
Relentless

 

 

 

 

 

Mr. Poe and his Raven

I wrote this in April of 2014 but thought it was appropriate for Halloween:)

Rethinking Life

Mr. Poe and...

Collage

I made the collage and the poem just dropped onto the page.  It’s not at all what I had in mind but here it is, nonetheless.

 

Mr. Poe & his Raven

Mr.
Poe
was
quite
distressed
even
though
he
did
his
best
he
never
could
get
any
rest
the
bird
was
just
relentless

 

the
raven
cawed
both
day
and
night
gave
all
the
neighbors
quite
a
fright
but
didn’t
care
for
them
at
all
the
bird
enjoyed
relentless

 

Mrs.
Poe
spoke
very
slow
she
said
the
bird
would
have
to
go
but
Poe
stood
strong
and
said
oh
no
he
can”t
help
that
he’s
relentless

 

I
love
the
raven
he’s
my
friend
I’m
sticking
by
him
till
the
end
on
this
one
issue
I
won’t
bend
it’s
okay
that
he’s
relentless

 

now
leave
me
woman
I
must
write
before
the
dawn
bursts
forth
with
light
the
bird
won’t
let
me
sleep
tonight
because
he’s
so
relentless

 

the
raven
looked
at
Poe
and
said
what’s
going
on
inside
your
head
I’m
sitting
here
within
your
view
don’t
you
know
what
you
should
do
you
know
that
I’m
relentless

 

I’m
tired
raven
can’t
you
see
THIS
is
what
YOU
do
to
me
you
never
stop
you
always
caw
you
truly
are
relentless

 

Poe
got
up
reached
for
the
door
the
raven
dropped
down
to
the
floor
you
love
me
just
the
way
I
am
you
know
you
like
relentless

 

goodnight
my
friend
my
body’s
sore
I’m
sorry
that
I’m
such
a
bore
I’m
off
to
bed
to
get
some
sleep
please
don’t
be
relentless

 

the
raven
stopped
and
shook
his
head
yes
go
on
go
off
to
bed
but
sleep
won’t
come
for
you
dear
friend
because
my
name’s
Relentless
