A Poem by Brenda Woods
"

500 prompt challenge - #8

"
i am alive
human, emotional
i will spill my thoughts
onto paper, like ink
light musings
dark blotches
i will write of sunshine and flowers
romance and stars
and i will write of thunderstorms
the darkness in my heart
flaws, fears, weaknesses
i am alive; i am raw

do not think that i will make my words pretty
shy away from maliciousness and deprivation
that i will romanticise violent thoughts
sing calm, melancholy sounds

no, i am alive
and i will scream
