One Night Only

A few weeks ago a friend of mine asked me to be apart of a poetry challenge. I was excited, but also scared to commit to anything as it has been a while since I have completed a poem, even though I always have several unfinished works going on at one time.

She sent me the following picture and asked me, along with a few others, to write a poem or short story for her blog.

I looked at it periodically, but nothing was sticking with me. With the deadline approaching I needed to sit down and just do what felt right. Always go with your gut!

Thank you mama for allowing me the excuse to finish a poem and get back on the saddle…theoretically speaking of course!

I hope her readers along with you all enjoy what I came up with.

I’m ready for my curtain call…

Dense and thick

Reaching out

The scarlet material blankets me


A reflection of myself

My soul weighted down

Dragging and scrapping

At one time clawing, but no more

Long ago I would scream

Only my echo for company

So long it’s been dark

My only friend

My only companion

Always a one man show

No players in this game

A puppet on strings

Bending for the masses


A spectacle

Soon the curtain will rise

The lights come up

For one night only

My performance will start again
