What We See

Written for:  Sunday Muse #142

I present myself
as whole.
You never see
the other side 
of me.


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.

    Funnily enough, this is one of the main themes of my current work in progress. It’s interesting how we can delude both ourselves and others.


  6. Truedessa says:

    I think we all have some holes as we are only human and have flaws. That is what keeps us striving to be better.

    The hunt is on
    Two sides to every story
    Apple is prettier on the other side
    Must go there

    I think we all do that to some extent.
