#OctPoWriMo Day 9/Tale Weavers/Saturday Mix: Poem – Lunes – “Roaring Lies” #amwritingpoetry #TaleWeavers


For OctPoWriMo Day 9 the Prompt is based on what love is or could be. Also, thanks to Michael of MindLoveMisery’s Menagerie for hosting Tale Weavers. This Prompt was based around the notion of doing your best.

Eyes focused, rod and reel,

Clasped tight, pulling —

Swath of muscled scales silver.

*****

It’s not about the fish,

Lakes’ waves lapping,

Hound dog rocked to sleep.

*****

Not a getaway, but hideaway;

Crazy woman erupted,

Her viciousness spat on him.

****

Apologies mumbled, yelling escalates until,

She’s gone forever;

He sighs, lungs breathing relief.

*****

Her memory a gag reflex;

False love hides,

Behind beauty, lies monster roaring.

*****

His shoulders un-tense, canoe rocks;

He tried; she —

Wasn’t worth her abusive behavior.

*****

    This is visceral work. But what do you know about crazy women?

    Hey, Amanda. I hope you’re really well. I hope you had a pleasant Thanksgiving. I’d write more, but the computer is working really slowly. I’ll try again later.

      Hi Christopher. Sorry I haven’t been in touch. I’ve been selling a fresh loose leaf tea brand in Canada, its organic, gluten-free, and they have other things like dips, spices etc. I host parties & one of my first online parties, I had a damn crazy host. I had to block her she would not leave me alone. I wasn’t thrilled with her reaction when she went off. Anyways it’s done. And I can’t do much, so you do the best you can. Hope you are well my friend. 🙂
