In Session

Written for:  Quickly #20
Write using multiple voices – Write a dialogue or a mob scene—
depends on how long you want to keep it up.

I never seem to have
any self-esteem.

Why do you suppose
that is?

That is why I am here,
to find solutions to my fears.

Do you fear others
are smarter than you? Perhaps
there is a clue in your childhood.

I do not care to discuss my child-
hood, particularly my mother
or brother.

Why do you suppose that is?

I am grown. There are events
that should be left alone.
I want to move ahead.

We must go backwards before
moving forward.

That makes no sense to me.
I merely want to be more
confident.

If you do not understand simple
facts at hand, perhaps I am not
your man. Besides, our time is up.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    Teehee. “Besides, our time is up.” Isn’t that always the case? 😉
