I’m taking part in the 2014 PAD challenge, which means this is a break in what I usually post. Today’s Poem is to:
For today’s prompt, write a together again poem. It’s one thing to split up; it’s something else to come back together again. Sometimes getting back together is a good thing; sometimes it’s a bad thing; and sometimes it’s just awkward.
Instead of writing for NaNoWriMo, I’ve decided to make these poems inspired by the second draft of my work-in-progress, currently titled “Arch Villains”. It will also be posted in the PAD Challenge post.
I imagine his lips
curled into a sinister smile
behind the metal mask.
he can’t see where.
He calls confidently.
It’s time to play
as we always do.
Others I barely hold him back.
But I never stop trying.
caught in a codependent conflict
that hurts more than ourselves
every time we meet.
How about you?
