Writing 101 Days 6, 9, and 10


My final assignments:

Typing on laptop DeathtoStock


I used to think that
If I get past this crisis
My life is golden


Don’t look at me
Don’t ask me my opinion
My contribution suffers by comparison
Pay no attention to the woman behind the curtain
Let me just recede into the corner
Trying so hard to be invisible
Just look past me
Just let me be


I no longer frequent
The place I loved to be
Where once I arrived early and stayed late
Giving all was my pleasure
Till it wasn’t enough
The faces I loved
I will never see again
Will you even miss me

I enjoyed this class. I learned one thing—that I can, too, write a poem. I am looking forward to taking Writing 201.

One of my writing goals for 2016 is to write a poem a day. And maybe work on rhyming some of them.
