Day 12: “create.”

Prompt: Write a poem based off of a tweet.

This got me thinking…


 

“create.”

Incisors gritting

against pencil tips

A fury of pages,

pale as alabaster,

murmur “create.”

The crooning

of artistic thrum

sadly does not translate.

The psyche is left

painted instead

in colours never

known,

in colours that

can’t be

shown.
