Losing It

Written for:  Poetic Asides April 2020 PAD Challenge – Day 11
Write a control poem.

She flipped out, lost control and screamed.
The neighbors had to call the police
who recognized the name from previous
disturbance calls. She is now past her teens.

Viewing a movie brought back that scene–
six months ago, a savage attack, a mystery.
She flipped out, lost control and screamed.
The neighbors had to call the police.

Time spent in therapy gave her life new meaning
but films or books could break her fragile solace.
When police had calmed her, they discussed
option of hospital, to aid healing.
She flipped out, lost control and screamed.

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.
