Poem 1: Safety Net

Poem 2: You

So, for those who are in the dark, April is National Poetry Month. As a poet, I participate in the tradition of writing a poem a day for thirty days. Some will be Haikus, some will be mega short, and some will be epic.



Poem 2

You are the thought before my conscience tells me that I know better.

The before thought in the moment I decide to protect myself.

 The last drop of water on a deserted island.

You are the giving before I receive….

and yet I still feel wrong in my wanting.

 The security behind my insecure thoughts.

Praise before my condemning..

.and I don’t mind setting myself up for hurt.

There is love there,

Not enough to make me feel better…

But enough to give me hope and smile on the past.
