Magmadiver

plunging deep, 
deep into the seething mass
the warmth
corroding the layers
surrounding
my thin, translucent
body

the warmth
transforms itself
into heat
smothering 
overriding
what i came as

my words
stolen by the bubbles
rising from the bottom
of these terrible
ashes

i shouldn't have
come down here
i should've stayed
above this coulee

but i need to
keep going
pursuing the treasure

i have to keep 
going.

it will not stop me.

nothing can stop me

me, the magmadiver

snowstorm

the pitter-patter of tiny flakes onto leaves
the crunch of those selfsame leaves under my boots
calls winter to me

the blinding quality of the snow hides my eyes
the vast white takes my sight and
calls winter to me

the sudden chill of the frost-bitten wind
the shrill scream of the storm
calls winter to me.

a myriad of emotions

I have a chemistry test tomorrow
on ionic radii, electronegativity, ionization energy
things I don't remember

yesterday, I met a girl
while my sister competed in the swimming pool
she won her events

today, I sit, writing
poems and lines of text no one will ever see
besides me and my screen

everyday, I try to be happy
to sit back and laugh at some joke
to smile, to see light in the darkness

i go on reddit,
browsing r/motivation, r/mademesmile
and I feel better

i know I seem so typical
a white girl of the ages, addicted to her phone
but there's nothing I can do.

Impromptu

obscure topics
unknown
unseen
unheard
unspoken

my friends
how they complain
when i add
topics like that
to the impromptu speech jar

oh, how i'll laugh
when someone has to 
talk about
the illegitimate children of popes
or the history of pens!

Repetitive

my poems feel the same,
always 'so', 'but' and 'that'

about the trees, the sky,
my feelings, my yearnings

about my depression, my tears,
my words, my family

it's so repetitive
but it's all i know

as such, 
i am sorry.
