NaPoWriMo Day 20

Busy busy beeeeee. Today’s prompt: sports. 

My life has one goal

To be my brother’s keeper

So I’ll shoot you down

(see what I did there?)


NaPoWriMo Day 16

Happy Easter! (if you’re celebrating) No Easter prompt, but instead: letter-writing. 

This letter’s too late
To say what I should have said
But know I love you

This letter’s too late
To tell you I understand
And I love you, too

Letters never sent
Words whispered alone at night
So they cross over

NaPoWriMo Day 13

I should write an emoji poem some day… Today’s prompt: ghazal

In this garden, I thread lightly where ashes bloom.
If I don’t pay attention, my feet will burn where ashes bloom. 

I’ve seen the world fall apart when I looked into your eyes. 
The skies were crumbling into the darken sea where ashes bloom. 

A million screams like roaring thunder burst my ears. 
I sink to my knees, crying, where ashes bloom. 

(I call this the bleak period)

NaPoWriMo Day 10

Double digits already? By the way, many problems have a tendency to solve themselves. Which lend itself to today’s prompt: the Bop.

I’m not a man of fear
Danger is a challenge
To be conquered
But every once in a while
I feel myself plunge
Into deepest horror

Where only darkness waits

I’ve never been truly free
Fear was waiting for me
Even surrounded by merriness
All I saw was horror
I never fought it
That strength I never had
In the face of utter despair
I break down and cry

Where only darkness waits

You didn’t change all that
Your fire isn’t that bright
But in your warm embrace
In your warm eyes
I find that glimmer of hope
That lets me hold on

Where only darkness waits

(yeah, not a problem that solves itself – I like to mislead you)
