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 an afflicted poem. Someone or something that is afflicted is someone or something that is in a troubled, injured, or humbled state. Or distressed to the point of constant suffering and anguish. In other words, the perfect poem for a Monday, right?
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.
Jagged white lines
through pale skin,
from long ago.
until they blur,
Next to deep
pools of blue,
through the scars.
How about you?
