Day 1 – Scaring Me

Scaring Me

Ever avoid

your own reflection,

ever annoyed

by introspection

scared and annoyed

by imperfections

far closer than

they appear to be?


Your poor solution

seems uncaring,

unmoored pollution,

thoughts unsparing,

forgone conclusion,

my truth you’re wearing

I’m your illusion

and you’re scaring me.

And we’re off! NaPoWriMo has officially started. I was going to do some type of theme, but I changed my mind and decided to keep it breezy and use whatever prompt I found interesting. Today I used’s (optional) daily prompt and tried my hand at a “Kay-Ryan-esque poem: short, tight lines, rhymes interwoven throughout, etc…” I didn’t follow the prompt completely, but I’m pretty chill with the result.

  1. Reblogged this on a cornered gurl and commented:
    Barry… I mean, what can I say about this guy? He and I go way back and we used to collaborate from time to time and share our work on this site we frequented where we built community and encouraged one another’s work. He and I will be working on something soon, but please… check him out. He has a ton to offer your seeking eyes.

  2. ” I scare myself “…I can feel a very uncool Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks moment coming on:)

    Looking at my own reflection in the mirror always leaves me aghast…a lovely interior housed in such bad architecture:)
    Good rhythm in these rap rhyme lyrics
