Flash Poem: Reruns by Maddie G

Reruns by Maddie G

Forever is felt this way.

The drum regulates the rhythm

A thought in every beat

And reminder in repeat. 

 I can't help but feel like the sky.

Towering over a city of lights

Pierced by skyscrapers' grandeur;

Memories are the backdrop of 

My very own reality TV show.

A rerun disguised.

Probably the fate of my demise.

This Flash Poem is very deep and insightful. I wonder what triggered this visual description and emotion. I liked the rhyme in the last two lines in the first stanza between "beat" and "repeat," it reminds me of the rhythmic tick tock of a clock.

I enjoy the concept of the first stanza, the underlying music theme.

Also liked your last line, with your juxtaposition of "probably" and "fate" .

Shows the confusion and liminal state everyone feels.. can you match this with a cheese? looking forward to hearing what cheese you will choose.

I'm an avid poet and just happen to like cheese.
