#NationalPoetryMonth – Day 20

NationalPoetryDay.Day9

ONWARD

should I be sad
at the ease with which
you have moved
away from me

perhaps

but really
I am filled with relief

your disappearance saves me
from smothering you in more
tenderness and affection
your absence forces me
to move on from the carcass
of your dishonesty
your loss
is my freedom


April is National Poetry Month and to celebrate – inspired by that badass word warrior Jason Reynolds and my writing promptress Jena Schwartz – I’m going to post a poem every day. They won’t be perfect, they never are, but they’ll be here, every day of April. I hope you stop by and enjoy the words and maybe even feel moved to share some of your own.
