Foolish Me(sonnet)

That night I was wide awake
When my house was struck by an earthquake
Everything was shaking, I had to rush
Left behind my toothpaste and toothbrush
Forgot the comb, but I didnt really care
Its been 2 years since I had last combed my hair
No question of combing, I hardly take a bath
When mom knows that, she shows her wrath
The quake moved everything left and right
Shaving brush and razor seemed to fight
And suddenly my trouser tore into two
This was very usual, I had nothing to do
Suddenly shaking stopped, I fell on the floor
My dream ended, when suddenly someone knocked the door......

    You are young, you still have a long way to go. I went through real bombings, starvation, and dead bodies around me, however you are writing like we all do, writing about what goes on in our mind.
    When you learn what you say it comes back to you, you will understand more of the world. When I was 20 years old, I was a shy dummy, could not write poems like you do. You are doing well. Keep on writing, but, please tell it if it is a dream or true. For me it is sad, that your mind thinks of those things, and not funny. (Report) Reply

    Your first line indicates you are awake, the last but 1 says it was a dream. You made us believe it is not a dream until the end said otherwise. You then make us wonder what next. A good poem ends not but continues in the mind. This is a good poem. (Report) Reply

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
