National Poetry Writing Month: Day #13 (April 13, 2013)

Today’s prompt is to take a walk, make notes, and incorporate them into a poem.

Well, this wasn’t that kind of a day. So, instead of an actual walk, I took a mental walk through the day, and noted a few impressions…

Reflections on a Saturday

I
You!
You had one thing
what you had to do
ONE THING!
Well?

Me!
I was the one
what trusted in you
ONE THING!
Hell!

II
Cracked
Oh, I’ve seen it everywhere
didn’t expect to see it there
Interrupted
in jagged silence
pointed in its defiance

I’d recognize that anywhere

III
Those days are gone
you couldn’t do that now
We’re so repressed
in all our freedom,
backwards in all our wisdom
We know better
but we don’t know how

IV
I want to move on
I know I have to carry on alone
I know I have to do this without you
And I will

It’s the one thing I can do
