Well...that was unexpected

So I got my second DD on a piece I hurriedly wrote for ProjectDFC. Wow. I'm a bit flabbergasted, because I never would have expected that piece to get it. With the Ballad of Mulan, I knew that poem would be going somewhere. But a poem about a late night call for cereal? Never would have thunk it.

Late Night CerealShe texted me to ask for milk,
A query so surreal,
For she was of the hungry ilk
Who craved for cereal.
Alas, I had no milk but soy,
Which she was wary to deploy
Within her bowl,
Within her bowl,
Her face showed she did not taste joy.
Oh Special K! 'Twas not the day
She meant for you to swim
With Mister Two-Percent, and play
Your tasty games with him.
The box was done, your final breath
Could only end in runny death.
No creaminess,
No creaminess,
A soggy grave was all she left.
All times, both good and bad, must end
In peacefulness or pain.
One moment, by your side a friend,
The next, gone and estranged.
While we still live, let's take control,
Together, let's live to the full
Like milk and flakes,
Like milk and flakes,
Creamy, crunchy in the bowl.


Again, I thank my readers for their support, and for those who critique my poetry to help me get better. Special thanks to ShadowedAcolyte, who critiqued this piece and suggested it for DD. I'm always in the process of editing my pieces as I reread them, and perhaps in the future I'll have thought of ways to tweak it.

In other news, I have begun work on a new poetry project I call "A Frozen Ballad." It's basically a retelling of the Disney film Frozen in the form of a traditional ballad. I've been having fun with it, and I hope to finish it in a more timely fashion than most of my other projects (Psalm 119 Project will get done eventually, I promise!)

Thanks for the fave on "Titles" and congrats on the DD -- I didn't fully know you had one for the piece under that title. I wish they'd let me out of my corner to read more.
