The person sounds really overwhelmed in the last one.
Interesting imagery using someone driving (and in the mountains?)

whatever lies beyond this morning
is a little later on."

Separate imagery! I'm not the fondest of extended metaphors, so most of mine tend to be self-contained. Def trying to branch away from edgy preteen doom n' gloom, though.

Doki-Doki Literature Club Poetry Challenge

In which I try (and probably fail) to write in the styles of each of the girls. This was long overdue.

First up is

Natsuki

Sometimes people hurt
It's kinda sad, I know
But having a friend
Makes anyone feel better.

Cause everytime you glow
And let your feelings show
It's warm and soft
Just like a fluffy sweater!

I know you'll be alright
I can stay with you tonight
And we'll share
Sweet things and funny secrets.

Just let me see your smile
After a little while
I'll give you all my heart
And let you keep it... boop!

Sayori

There's an old tree on the way to school
In an overswept lawn by an overlooked pool

I wonder how long he's grown?

I often think I can hear his thoughts
Under the leaves and mossy bark
That even though there's flowers and grass
And wind and bugs that flutter past

The tree feels all alone.

He watches the squirrels run and play
But deep in his trunk he's hidden away
Seeing the world through a dirty knot
And stuck looking out at the same old spot.

What else would I do

If I couldn't move or talk or dream
Just rooted in place with everything
Trapped inside an ivy shell

Well, wouldn't it be swell
If the tree felt that way too?
Swollen with a mantra that I've stolen from a thief.

Monika

I roll the string in my fingertips
Feeling up and down its length
From the frayed, old tip
All the way
To where it intersects my skin

Looking for the end, I pull it hard
The fibers grating deep inside
But - to my surprise
It unravelled into a story of me.

Every part
Every scene
All parts of me on a little string
Not good, not bad
Just there
Plain, and white, and worn.

And, in a way, that was comforting.
Beginnings, endings, they're all the same
One leads to the other
Like the string led me.

Yuri

Acquiescence to the symphony of night
As the wane moon rises in a starless sky
Draped in the wreathes of wraithspun clouds
I hear you.
Do you hear me too?
Every pulse of a dusk-caked heart
Sends oil through ruts from the wake of cold
Cold wuthering winds, cold craquelure lines
Elements tearing away each trace of varnish left.
But still, I listen by my open pane
Even as the frigid fingers tear into my skin
Even as the moon is swallowed by the clouds
Even as the twin pulses become one.
Still I wait. Still I listen.
Holding on to a waking dream amidst the sleeping terrors
That I spun from the glass of the mirrors I shattered.
Hoping someday soon
My aria of one once more becomes a symphony of two.
Swollen with a mantra that I've stolen from a thief.
