Searching for a Lost Jungle in the City

The city is mysterious, a grid
Of paths, most of them laid wonderfully straight
Upon which brave explorers roam, well-armed
Against the strange and hostile denizens

How curious to leave a jungle known
And go in search of a jungle not known
Predicated upon legends and yarns
Lost forever in a tangle of dreams

Among the still uncharted traffic lights
In a gridded city of mystery

Let's go after our dreams
which we lost one day we need them back it seems
go and gather all the stars
that will open upon a gate up in the sky
Which will lead us a brand new stage
Where we'll go and challenge our Past

Fight intense, be dynamic
Let's ho, ho . don't panic

Losing makes us stronger than before
There will be no limits, no regrets
We'll keep fighting, we'll keep pushing onward
fly up high, be dynamic
Let's go!
punch and kick
oh, we're trembling with Adrenalin
brand new stories are about to begin

As Einstein can say:
-The logic will get you
from A to Z;
imagination will get you
everywhere.- You can be the logic
all over my body;
and baby,
I can be your imagination.

Spy Kids (the original)
A 5 dollar matinee with your mom
A box of Bunch A Crunch
Or a plastic sack of
Dip N Dots

Ninja Turtle walkie talkies
Flare denim cargo pants
Bobby Jack zip up hoodies
With blue Fla-Vor-Ice stains
And hide and seek

Now That’s What I Call Music
Volume 17
Playing from a 10in x 10in
Silver box TV
And high frequency noise
To accompany
Akon’s latest bass line

A razor scooter
The foot powered kind
When the Preacher’s Daughter
Has a shiny blue one with a motor

Weeping to Secondhand Serenade
Because your mom won’t let you have
A Wii
And your crush checked “no” on the
Note you gave them last week

Detention after pre algebra
From shooting a girl two seats over
At “close range”
With a hornet
And she was unfamiliar with the school wide

The words
And epic
Used to describe what your
8th grade field trip is gonna be like

A phone call from your best friend
About finally finding Ben Franklin
In Tony Hawk’s Underground 2

The OK symbol is your most used emoji
There are too many guys with long hair
And beards
White girls all have a weird obsession
With house plants
We’re all at least 50 thousand dollars  in debt
And I think we all
Just really hope Donald Trump
Isn’t our next president

My HP Poem #824

nurul Nov 2014

Where things started out. Talks they were small ones. Names and such.

Laughs are only here when you are near and smiles are aftertaste from the sip of your jokes.

We both don't believe in either horoscope or astrology but I asked what's your sign and I didn't tell you mine. Your curiosity drove you to ask me mine.

We put up the ugliest part of us on display and tell that we are okay with each other making acquintance with it. In the same time, making ourselves at home. Nothing to hide.

Oops, didn't we saw the warning signs?

All the adventures I tried to drag you in but you refused.

We took the wrong road. I saw trees like ghosts. I hear sounds and it's getting steeper. We ran with pitch black vision out of all these.

Zip code
I wanted to say sorry and I'm not good at talks so I wrote for you and put it into an envelope. There were never stamps.

The feelings. It went away like wind I felt when your car zoomed past me on that Friday night.

And I'm out of this game.


Our tale is the length of the Z's in the dictionary. An allegory.

Got an inspiration from the book 'Lover's Dictionary' by David Levithan. Credit to the dictionary on my shelf from ages ago.

L- lets me know that i could be me,
I- i know that i'll show a little empathy,
Z- zello st. makes me think of her,
Z- zebras run free everytime her name is heard,
Y- you complete me girl, you get the whole virtue,

complex beauty like an astalian,
letters tapped on my head,
i hope you like a challenge,
U and I popped up instead.

Zodiacal signs shift
zones of time through
zephyrs swirling
in our breath - distance
zips down to zero

Alice has
Been broken up with
Constantly on the first
Date because the
Elligible bachelors make her
Fail to
Give a good first impression
Heaven knows
In time she’ll learn how to

Jonas wants to live a
Keynote moment with a special
Lady even if she’s
Mad because to him
Nothing is working
Out the way it should
Presently the universe is producing
Quietly Alice and Jonas’

Sunday morning
They met
Under the pouring rain sourrounded by animals
Were soon exchanged
Xanax was needed to calm down Alice that day
You should know that today they are taking their kid to a
Zoo where they first met

I was challenged to write a poem where every line was a new letter of the alphabet, from A to Z. This was the result.
