True Colors

Written for:  Poetic Asides 2019 PAD November Chapbook Challenge – Day 30
“For today’s prompt, write a the end poem. It’s the end of the first draft phase of the challenge, so there’s that. But you can also reach the end of a book, journey, or conversation.” 

There is nothing left to be said
You want to end our relationship, so she said.

Did you think sending an emissary might look cowardly?
After five years there was a great deal to be said.

One week has passed; now you show up in person
You want to explain those words she said.

Your true nature has been exposed
Like a ventriloquist words easily said

Too late for this lady (not in waiting)
I feel a sense of relief, it can be said.

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.
