A Poem about Poetry, Huh?

A Poem about Poetry, Huh? – This is one of many poems I wrote for a competition, and while I didn’t choose this one for the competition, I still like it. Enjoy my poetry about poetry 🙂

Bittersweet Enemies

Bittersweet Enemies ~ This poem explores that awkward place where two people are more like frenemies than either friends or enemies. Written for Napowrimo 🙂

Pity

Pity is a poem about a friendship that turned sour as the result of lying. Though this wasn’t written for an Escapril prompt, it is Napowrimo – so here’s another for the books 😉
