Be creative EVERY DAY • A Challenge
The poetry I scribbled out yesterday is taking shape! I’ve crafted 2 poems and the inklings of a third (which can be seen on my poetry sketchbook).
Below is the shorter of the 2, Mermaid:
She used to lull me so softly each night into sleep,the crash and caw of a heavenly life at the beach,her sand filled with miniature wonders to reachoverflow my treasure box, I was simple… at peace.
As my hair grew long, tangles echoed my brainno longer the young laughing mermaid, I was shamedby lusty urges so dark, twisted, kinky and deeplike the seawater’s home to kraken and monsters without feet!
Medusa emerges, vicious strikes from my headas I tremble with unspoken desires… paired with dread.Will this deep dark ocean of life eat me wholeor will this sailor prevail? Toward the lighthouse we row!
