Hey guys! I am so sorry I wasn’t able to post any poems for mostly all of NaPoWriMo! I hope to do much better next year! I had finals and shows I was playing all these past two weeks with my band that gave me zero free time… But now that’s all over for the time being, and I am going to try to send this last week off with a bang. So I wrote a poem for yesterday… and then my computer died… And my boyfriend had my charger.. So I’ll give you the one from yesterday today, and another will come later on. I wrote it for the anagram prompt.
I am thin
Like the warmth of a fire on a hot night.
I have gone here to my outer limbs
To the rim of myself
To feel full again.
I am opening
A lion laid out on a table for dissection.
Will you be the teller of my stories
When silence bites my lips?
When a moth flies in on a breeze
Through my teeth
And molts its wings?
I hinge on belting all my blame
At the eyes on the metro.
Relighting my guilt and rambling forward.
Heel to heel I count the lengths between us
When will it be a long time?
Time to know who I am without supports
Trembling naked without a bra.
Will I ever be legible enough to you
For you to know the words
That leave me hanging by my toes?
Like a heron perched at the top of a dive?
Here I am behind bars.
Afraid to leave home.
Could you turn for a moment
And rip the brambles from my feet?
