This is a poem I wrote for my GCSE english coursework.
I was scrolling around my laptop today and I found it. The structure is awful, I changed it around for the one I handed in but I can only find this one. Can't remember how I changed it though.
Just wanted to know what everyone thought really.

--------------------------------------

Firebrick flowers on my beige.
Clinging hopefully to that Barbie coat hanger,
Ages two to three years,
Two to three years back.
Only alizarin on our card,
Just too beguiling for beige.

A smoky sincerity through the bus window,
Crumble into a gape of panic.
I’ll spurn your celestial stare,
And you will deem me satanic.
Stranger, I need to care.

First time fairytales and a stroll across the moor?
You took my sanity so let’s loose our regard.
Snow on my nose, or are you being obscure?
Only alizarin on our card,
Just too beguiling for beige.

Rain on our window striking a hostile major key,
A coffee shop in Berlin, your notebook and me.
Keep falling into your seat, I like the conversation
Potters and Ballet shoes, yet another relation.

2 days, 67 hours, 4039 minutes or 242353 seconds

A chance for my impartial cloak to break,
Tear away at my façade,
Scrape away my tips of fake.
Only alizarin on our card,
Just too beguiling for beige.
