Day #19: Phone Number Poem

2- Jekyll & Hyde

0-A rollercoaster ride

7-Always up and down, round and round

9-Making my stomach churn and heave with nervous tension

4-Wondering when it is

6-Going to all come crashing down

3-Praying for peace

3-Praying for help

4-Searching for some clarity

2-For freedom

I am not sure about the ending of this poem. The #2 just doesn’t feel quite right. I was thinking about changing it to 2- To leave.. or To change,  but those really weren’t quite right either. I’m just looking for two words that make it all stop… the stress, the chaos, the uncertainty… to be free from chains/burdens/repression/abuse. Maybe I will try to play with this one before the end of the month.

  1. Sometimes we need to let our first attempt rest and keep coming back top it to find how it will ring truest for us.

    I am really intrigued by this format. I will need to play around with it some.


  2. I look forward to trying out this format because I haven’t tried it yet. Sometimes, I like to walk away from a piece of writing for awhile in order to allow it to marinate. Then, I often find that when I finally revisit the piece, I’m able to look at it with fresh eyes.
