NaPoWriMo – National Poetry Writing Month
Inside My Smile:
inside my smile there is a snicker
a cold knowing
inside my smile there is a hunger
ravenous for revenge
my breathing is labored
i’m coming unhinged
niceness is for church girls
and i haven’t been in years
though scripture is beautiful poetry
it can’t shield you from transported fears
fright has grown into might
i’m pushing my will into your way
don’t even try to fight back
just sit there
read these rhymes as i instruct
search for clues of self destruct
decipher and examine my words for code
can you save me before i jump?
