Hide Me

Written for:  the Sunday Whirl, Wordle #353

Words:  belong, strip, hiding, laugh, put, close, skip, home, invisible, corners, cardboard, black

Hide me in
black corners.
Make me
so I will not
have to smile
or laugh.
Close doors
of belonging.
I will skip
the pretense
of home. Put up
walls of cardboard.
Just leave 
a strip
for low light
to filter in.
Cannot fight
fear of darkness.


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.
