She Said

She Said

A Poem

She said that I was stupid,
She said she didn’t care.
She said that I was on my own,
That I wasn’t self aware.

She said that she loved me,
She said that she knew,
She made me tell all my secrets,
All my tales of woe.

Then one day she left me,
She just turned and walked away.
She didn’t even look back,
On that dark, dark day…

The First Day

The First Day

A Poem

The clock struck twelve,
and costumes shelved.

Halloween passed,
Nanowrimo at last.

Fruit tea and tears,
As writing commences.

The fear of blank page,
Turned to blind rage.

As characters play,
Making things go their way.

And I, the struggling creator,
No more than a puppet I fear.

I type and type all through the night,
Yet when I’m done there’s still so much white…
