DRIVING TO THE EDGE ON INTERSTATE FIVE – Promote Yourself

vally 

As the tires hum I grip the wheel

Through miles of barren landscape,

My wife, daughters make the sound of sleep

As the emptiness rushes by,

I am alone in this desolate land

With only my thoughts for company,

The San Joaquin Valley stretches along

This ribbon of road,

On the CD player, Jonatha Brooke

Sings her sad, soulful songs,

I am so far away from home

As the sun lowers behind the distant mountains,

Wherever I travel, or choose to exist

I long for the home

I fear I may never find,

There is something inside

That I do not understand

That will not permit peace,

A happy family is mine

But conflict and emptiness still possess me,

Forever alone.

Come show thy Durham Breast – Your Favourite Poem

EMIL

1542

Come show thy Durham Breast
To her who loves thee best,
Delicious Robin—
And if it be not me
At least within my Tree
Do the avowing—
Thy Nuptial so minute
Perhaps is more astute
Than vaster suing—
For so to soar away
Is our propensity
The Day ensuing—

Emily Dickinson

My name is Emma Ware, and the link to my WordPress site, The Smiley Poet’s Thoughts, is https://thesmileypoet.wordpress.com/. 
 
I’m fairly new to your website but I already love what you do. The quality of content you give is amazing.
 
I was hoping to submit one of my poems to you for your perusal, and I hope it’s good enough to share.
 
I am a 21 year old university student whose dreams only involve using words in some way to help people. I want to write and read, and nothing else. Poetry has always been a passion for me and I adore the pursuit of the written verse. I am a Christian, so much of my work has to do with faith and the inner struggles that come with it. I also write about writing, which is the subject of the piece I am submitting.
