What are Blues Poems?

10 Jan

Blues poem is a poem that often talks about the  struggles and depressions of the writer and his surrounding. Like the blues songs from the African- American singer, blues poems also show the fight and the determination to overcome the said difficulty.

Themes and lines are usually in the gloomy and sad mood considering the words used are heavy and deep feeling of despair and hopelessness.

The following are a few collections of  the Blues Poems I have written in the past during my moments of struggle:

1.) Numb

I sewed and stitched day and night
till my fingers went numb

just to finish a heart
that never feels a damn

2.) Faculties Unable

gray sky
i’m blur, everything is pale
i don’t want to see
so quiet,
i’m stuffy,
calm, tranquil
my day is numb
couldn’t feel anything

i wonder
if i can still stand a day
without my perception
my faculties unable

only with you
i will be stable

3.) Travesty

i was on my foot
standing in front of a door
waiting for its open
and welcomes me
on its love and passion

but the the day has ended
the sun sets
and hide in the darkness
i couldn’t believe that
he has never open

now i’m here alone
in the dark–lonely
and lost,
hungry with his words
wishing all things
has its beginning

i saw it
i saw myself
in honesty
lost in travesty

4.) Gravity

your keepin’ me
you wanted me to be your prisoner
without confining me in your prison
i your cage–the fragile heart you have

you hold me without your touch
down here in my g-spot
I tremble even in the absence of my fear
you bound me without a chain

oh~ how much i love that
i can still live in my own way
i’m still holding my freedom
as if i just stand with you

my real gravity has bound me
i fall again in your own hands.
