For this week’s prompt, write a “don’t start that again” poem.
Voices in My Head
It always was the same lame apology:
don’t risk or reach or be a bother,
fear embraces limits and barriers, after all.
Excuses are cuddled and dare rocked to sleep.
The ceaseless gnawing on the bone of confidence
the narration of lack and challenge of merit
All these voices in my head, I thought you had gone
Don’t start that again. Don’t.
