Speakeasy: Blizzard



I remember falling into you,
Tumbling from my place in the clouds
Adrenaline rushing

I remember thinking at the time,
It seemed like a brilliant idea
To be that free

I remember the dizzying buzz
Of being caught in your snowstorm
Like dancing light

I remember melting against you,
Mesmerized by everything you were
That I was not

I remember the day you closed the door
To shine your light on someone else
Disappearing me

I remember crawling through the darkness,
Emerging into sunlight
Beautiful and free.


This is my submission for this week’s Speakeasy #135. You should come and read all the other fantastic submissions, then come back and vote for your three favourites on Thursday (that’s tomorrow!).

This week, we had to use the following sentence anywhere in our piece: At the time,
it seemed like a brilliant ideaAnd we had to make a reference to this piece of music.

  1. Beautiful look at a passionate relationship that fizzles, but ultimately leaves her (him?) stronger for the experience. The descriptions are wonderful, and I really enjoyed this. Great work!

  2. An interesting poem. I love the last stanza… I was not expecting that. Nice work integrating the prompt sentence, Suzanne, and thanks for letting me join your group.

  3. Hi Suzanne, oh I’m joyous that I got to read another poem on Speakeasy!!! Writing in tercets is one of my favorite forms, This is a great piece and I really enjoyed the amount of skill in your slant rhymes, assonance, simile, and onomatopoeia shown here:

    “I remember the dizzying buzz
    Of being caught in your snowstorm
    Like dancing light”

    Thanks so much the wonderful read!

  4. Ooooh, an apostrophe 😀
    (If it wasn’t for Trifecta I wouldn’t have known it’s other meaning :P)
    This was a wonderful take on the prompt 🙂
