NaPoWriMo 2023 Day 10


Tonight I’m using Writer’s Digest April PAD prompt for Day 9: a number poem.

sad woman
by ARHuelsenbeck

driving past your house ten times to see if your car is there
calling you nine times, hoping you pick up
having eight different imaginary conversations with you
going to seven different bars, hoping to find you there
buying you six presents to make you fall in love with me
changing my outfit five times so I look attractive for you
baking you four cakes to win your heart
crying myself to sleep for three months straight
dyeing my hair twice
hoping for even one kiss
