Having Fun with The Poe – Edgar Allan Poe

I got up this mornin’
and I was Raven
about the mess of circumstance
that should not be

I looked over at my honey
and heard a mumble
of don’t be angry
my Annabel Lee

Don’t try to swoon me
with my man—The Poe
You’re not The Sleeper—
Alive is what you are
my sweet

So if we don’t want to see
how The House of Usher
Can Fall–get out of bed
and move your feet

Stop those eyes
from piercing so deep
I’m not a mad-person
with a Tell-Tale Heart

I’m just the one who loved you—
right from the start

Just having a good time with The Poe! What about you? Always – from Sharon with The Write Talk! Talk to you soon!


About sharonsbooks

I am a practical and contemporary urban writer who focuses on readers/participants who are high school age youth and adults. Although I currently write fiction and poetry, I am inspired to write about social and political issues in the sometimes subtle and other times blatant way that they are present in our everyday lives. I love humor and I strive to expand the thought process and create positive change. I realize today, in the scheme of things, that I know only a little. However, I would be remiss if I didn’t share what I’ve learned as I continue to develop my own growth process. In all my writings, I’ve always sought to convey a message from my spiritual center. This keeps me broad-minded regarding diversity and a willingness to learn from anyone and everyone.
