Day One of ?

I accidentally realized that today is Day 1 of NaPoWriMo.  I miss the ease of which I use to spill my emotions in poetic expressions.  So, I turned to prompts for gentle inspiration.

Poetic Attempt #1  (thanks to this prompt)

Ruled by weakness

I hide behind strength

With no possession

Greater than false pride

Unwavering fear 

Gives me pause

As I inhale my tears

I swallow your apathy

With memories of cum

You cannot see my eyes

As I am undone

My need to bleed

Welcomes heartbreak

I beg for you, again

And because I am a bit of a masochist, I turned to a friend for more of a challenge.  I was challenged to write a triolet using the themes of quarantine and envy.  I am definitely rusty — and should take advantage of the next 29 days — but I lack the self-discipline to commit.

Isolated from your touch

I envy the woman you love

My heart remains in your clutch

Isolated from your touch

I feel the loss in a slow rush

Seeking forgiveness from above

Isolated from your touch

I envy the woman you love
