2008 – Alicia Beane – Suitcase and Left

Winner of the 2008 SNHU Poetry Contest

Suitcase and Left
by Alicia Beane

I do not have much to say
Not tonight
I haven’t for a while.
But I don’t know why.
Perhaps my brain
Went on vacation:
Packed up each word
In his suitcase and left
(no doubt to Hawaii.)
And I’m stuck here
Useless
Empty
Void of any common sense
Or poetry.
And I want it back.
Here
Is where it belongs,
Along with each of my words.
How I miss them,
They should be cradled once again
By my thoughts
And the ink of this pen.
I’ll be sending a postcard-
With my sad face on the cover,
Pleading (yes it is shameful)
WISH YOU WERE HERE.
