dilemma – a poem

Side Note:

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, you have two options:

  1. Write a love poem.
  2. Write an anti-love poem.

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.

Dilemma

Sparks fly
building into something
more than friendship.
One of the few
worthwhile
pursuits in life.
Affection
leads to amour
distracting
from the everyday.
Villains hide
around every corner
ready to take
that which matters.
The spark
must be smothered
before it can be
held against me.

How about you?
