Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 - Prompt #407 - Ups and Downs

"Offer an "up" or "down" poem.  Or, write an "in" or "out" poem."

If this is a test, 
I did not pass
go or acquire
any money.  Inside
my brain live
knots so tough
I cannot untangle
them.  Every decision
seems wrong, or seems
impossible to make.  
Friends and family need
to knit their ideas
together for any
solution to be reached.
My outside light
is occluded.  Is this
a test?

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.
