Self Degridation

Written for:  lifeafter50forwomen.com
Host:  Dakshali - Picture Prompt Plate #1

Attired in old nightgown,
she gazes pensively out
her window.  Plants are
blooming.  She is not. 
Dissatisfied with her
life and the ennui that
accompanies it.  Most
of all, dissatisfied with
herself for her inability
to tell him she is no 
longer willing to act
the role of mistress,
nor does she wish
to marry him.

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.

    Ooh. This is so good. I see growth.
    Now that she’s come to see AND ADMIT how dissatisfied she is, change will come. For that’s how change happens.
    Love the elegant picture.
    Thanks for sharing. Xoxo
