OctPoWriMo, Day 14 (Poem 13)

ReclaimingFor Day 13, I actually used the prompt, “If I was You” (though I didn’t use the prompt suggestion, as it was the blitz (again), and I’d already written two this month (and don’t love them as a form)).  I did a Spanish form called the décima instead.


If I Were You

If I were you, I’d pack my bags;
How long did you think you could
Still hide the truth before it would
Come crashing down?  All those red flags
You flew have finally got you snagged.
And I’m not sad to see you go;
More sorry for the wasted years
I’ve spent, and all the futile tears
I’ve spilled.  I’m glad that now I know.
Just one more heartache to forgo.
