NaPoWriMo – Day 8 + Day 9

9 Apr

Day 8 – The Lady Down The Hall

Sophia is a short, slick lady
Who lives down the hall,
If you try telling her the building is on fire
“No!” She says because she knows it all.

Day 9 – away and out

round table
and papers of clutter
dust filled home
that sits atop my shoulders
swollen eyes and empty heart
where has she gone?
pointless life she leads
no looking forward
takes the beating
one after the other
“we have to let you go”
translates to her body and mind
useless,
incompetent,
unintelligent
“why me?”
blank stares and
bloodshoteyes
promises unkempt
dreams deferred
wishes
of
more
but
never
the
impossible
possible
