Porcelain Child

You know those word magnets you put on your fridge and can make all sorts of funny sayings? I like to use ours, at home, to write poetry. I like the challenge of only having select words to create something beautiful.

Well I found this website, Poet Magnetic Poetry Kit, which is a web version of the fridge magnets.

I've been addicted all morning!! Here's what I came up with:

Porcelain Child
My ghostly porcelain child
Born of bleeding broken glass
Remember the poison of this flower
Surround by blushing champagne
Marble concrete lingers after a fools desire decays
Man may devour the young
Darkly ferocious to lie to its haunting
Yet morning will wake that throbbing fever
Listen for it's soft warm words
As they overcome the wild rhythmed growl

This poem is about how our society has an unrealistic idea of perfection and teaches it to our children. Perfection isn't all it's cracked up to be and eventually you will grow sick of the hold it has on you and you will want to get out from it's evil trap.

Some of the crazy things you can come up with only having a few words to choose from! It forces you to be more creative and use your imagination.

Give it a try! What can you make with these words?
