Cake (National Poetry Writing Month 2017 #27)   Leave a comment

The taste of failure
Of giving in
Of losing what little self control I have
Of loosing my inner demon
Of gaining weight and losing life
Of being perpetually fat
Of being unhappy
But at least it’s not broccoli.

Running On Empty (National Poetry Writing Month #27)   Leave a comment

I am running on empty
Thoughts have fled
And I have nothing left

But, hard as it is
I must write
For it is my lifeblood

I’ll fill up my pot
Of virtual ink
And write on once more

I’m Still Broken (National Poetry Writing Month 2015 #27)   Leave a comment

It doesn’t matter how much progress I make,
Or how many steps I continue to take.
I’m still broken.

It doesn’t matter how much I try
Or how many times I ask myself why?
I’m still broken.

It makes no difference what I do,
Doesn’t matter what work I put myself through
I’m still broken.

I know that I’ll never be enough
I’m just a piece of glass. Jagged, rough,
And still broken.

Clean (National Poetry Writing Month #27)   Leave a comment

Cleanliness
is close to
godliness,
some say
If that
is the case,
I must be
the devil.
