From Her Crimson Lips

She insisted persistently that I listen, her words swirling, whirling


but I covered my ears, fears swelling from what she was telling


the words skipping, slipping through my fingers to linger


arching and sparking inside my brain causing too much pain


so I hummed and drummed trying to drown their sound


but I cowed and allowed her last word to spiral for awhile


inside until it died.

*Day 5 of the 2010 April PAD Challenge. Today’s theme was “Too Much Information (TMI).”

  1. Just saw your link on sage’s web.

    I love everything you’ve written. I’m so glad I’ve found you.
    What a treat!

    1. Hi Chloe! I am glad you found me through Sage’s site! I am also very happy that you like what I have written. Thanks so much for stopping by, reading, and leaving a comment 🙂

    1. Thank you, Sage. It feels good to be writing poetry again. I haven’t written any in almost a year. I have developed a little routine for this month where I sit outide on the porch and write as soon as my son is asleep and work my way throught whatever prompt is on Poetic Asides for the day. I look at the prompt in the morning and let it work its way through my brain during the day so it is ready for action in the evening 🙂 Thanks so much for taking a look!
