how did you walk
into my lonely home?
I weaved this world from thousands of
cleanse my dream with your light.
You won’t leave me in the darkness,
our chaos-ridden souls.
Can we unmake the demon’s spell?
Written for Jane Dougherty’s Poetry Challenge.
I hate cinquains.
Don’t get me wrong–not because I don’t like the form. I just had an unpleasant experience at school when we had to write a cinquain about a crappy theme and now the word reminds me of the awful day. Ahem.
But I did have fun interpreting the picture Jane gave us this week. With the second poem, I tried to write something positive. I really did. But uncertainty is better, yeah?
