Poetry 1

I know I haven't posted in a while but I just finished my part in a school musical. I am stuck in a cast though. Anyway I decided to share the poems I've been writing for English class. Here's the first one. It's called:

The River's Edge
The swiftly moving current
runs smooth as silk itself,
stopped by nothing
but life at the end,
It sweeps at every bend,
goes turning every head,
the river is everyone's friend,
the river is going to be dead.

The glistening gleam
from the river's soft sheen
will welcome the morning
since dawn's early light.

Flowing and deep
the midnight blue sheet,
after everything it's done
the river will always be my friend.

Now everyone who has read this automatically thinks that it's about a river. I don't actually know what I wrote it about, I just know that it's not about a river.
