Drained


Day 11 in National Poetry Writing Month. Back to an emotional poem. Also trying out a different style. I hope you like it! But if you don’t, that’s okay. I think I’ll survive.

Drained

NaPoWriMo
Drained…
Of emotion,
Contemplation,
Of direction,
Motivation.

Strained…
To find a way,
Get through the day,
Find a good lay,
Get steady pay.

Trained…
To be alone,
Be on my own,
Pay off my loan,
Answer the phone.

Pained…
To mourn my loss,
To bear this cross,
To grow no moss,
Be my own boss.

Chained…
To Jezebel,
Her rebel yell,
To where I dwell,
A living hell.
