April is National Poetry Writing Month! The challenge is to write a poem every day of the month. I’m using prompts from the Writer’s Digest Poetic Asides blog.
Write a guilt poem.
The Black Wall
I lay alone on the needless bed in bluish light
straining through the navy blackout drapes,
twisting histories in my mind to a favorable opinion
of self-destruction, fearful, thrilling, to go back to that pre-teen place
of bluish twilight skin, cold on a summer night
cross-legged on the roof outside my room
craving the loss of eternity, the experience of un-birth
and nothing to do with aware.
