Crying Wolf

Written for:  Poetic Asides April 2017 Challenge – Day 14
Pick a popular saying and make that the title of your poem, then write your poem.

He threatened
she called
he behaved

He broke ribs
she called
flowers forgave him

He beat her
she couldn’t call
she was dead

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.
