Haywire Ball of Yarn

"Use the theme of 'unraveling' in a piece of writing."

No life is like
a tightly wound
skein of wool.  My
threads are not
cohesive.  They are
frayed, filled with
anger, sadness,
and disappointment.
As unraveling continues
I wonder if I will
still possess
an inner core.


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.
