Poem 15 – Dog Days Are Over

Hi everyone!

Here is a poem that I dug up that continues my previous series of poems written to music. As you can probably guess, this poem was written while listening to the song “Dog Days Are Over” by Florence & The Machine. Enjoy, and please feel free to leave a comment!

Lying in the corner

listening to a sweet melody

it spilled over me

in a burst of foam

and suddenly I was



under the milky white foam,

my mother, father, sisters and brothers

gazing at me from the shoreline

until they became nothing more than

tiny black dots

and the world was so fresh,

taunting me to explore,

so I gave in,

and dove under.
