Over half thus far aren't good, but it's helped me process a lot, which I'm going to count as a win.
Had a bit of a lull transitioning to a new job where my hours are longer so I'm trying to schedule my writing. Still got a ways to go on the first draft
Permanent Pen -
You burn me like the sun,
Blind until morning comes
That skin is tinged and blistered,
An overwhelming glare in the sky
Culminating into a buzz that I misread
Every time winter hooks its teeth
And the world sinks back into night
Tell me apart from your volatile dreams
While I stare off into nothing
Mulling over half-formed thoughts,
Wishing for an answer as to why
I let you pass by the line I drew;
Hoping for a sign of completion
After all of our sanity is finally wasted
Was it designed this way from the start?
Were there ever words kept to heart?
Do I cling to the safety of warmth?
Or become aware of the truth in my ear-
I don’t want to be afraid anymore
As the thought of settling for less
Leaves me in scorn, once again,
I’ll learn to draw a new line
With a permanent pen
And just keep trying to
Turn off the burning light
That is called letting you in
