of mice and miscapitalization

This is a poem I wrote for my English Class. It is inspired by the poet I did my project on, E.E. Cummings. I am proud of it. Kind of really proud of it. 

water is like our Kristen Lohner           

(insipired by the style of E.E. Cummings)

water is like our love 
i'll always thirst for more 
in bottle i will hove 
when lacking i'll find store
i've missed the gentle calm 
(that fills all that i am)

and when in love we sink
we'll broad our ivory flag 
(yet the blank taste we mock 
and heavy heart we bog)
nourishment stems a seed
essential supply need

the wetness of my tears
stale, salty like the sea
makes our love dry like burs 
(and takes the waves from me)
but in a cup i'll save 
us, (and the story of)

don't know if essential 
your affection not shown
sloshing the way i feel 
clueless sat on your throne 
moments that i will strain
and with new hope i'll clean

the please of the surface
(and funnel of the joy)
pouring slowly through us
we're naturally coy
inside protective coat
still on our love i'll float
