If only poems

These poems were inspired on the page by Andreas Lund English as Another Language

where he suggested writing poems in a constructivist manner, which we reproduce here:

On the first line write a noun of your choice
On the second line write two adjectives joined by and to describe this noun
On the third line write a verb and an adverb to describe this noun in action
Start the fourth line with like or as followed by a comparison
Start the final line with if only followed by a wish


As the page is not updated any more, we have decided to publish them here.

deceptive and sad,
injuring constantly
like a blow on my heart
if only it was a dream...
(by Sara Cabello)
unfair and short
passes quickly
as the course of a river
if only I could stop time and enjoy the beautiful moments
(by Carlos Juez)
Wet and melancholic
Fall slowly
Like teardrops of sadness
If only it could smile as the sunlight
(by Eugenia Rivera)
sweet and salty,
changing continually
like the feelings
If only I had the feelings' boat to sail everywhere
(by Egina Vilatimó)

Paintful but exciting
sense to explore
as the feight of a bird
a wish to know the fate

(by Sara Alegre)

A model
imprisoned and manipulated
living desperately
like a sportswoman who wants to get a gold medal
if only I could take our her disguise
and make her be herself

( by Gemma Pidelaserra)
