NaPoWriMo / GloPoWriMo 2018 – Day 2 – “A Cocktail of Cryptic Metaphors” by David Ellis

Hello everybody.

I’m already nearly a couple of days behind for National Poetry Writing Month, so it looks like we are off to a good start!

Let’s get down to brass tacks and I will write a poem for you all right now. I will add further links to other poems that I’ve unearthed for Day 2 later to the ones that I will post below after my own poem.

I’m also going off-piste today when it comes to the official daily prompt but don’t tell anyone, it will be our little secret. (Or as much as a secret it can be with me announcing it to the general public!)

“A Cocktail of Cryptic Metaphors” by David Ellis

Finding peace in the puzzle
Bringing you closer to who you really are
Life is often far from subtle
A cocktail of cryptic metaphors

Confusing inevitability with destiny
Keeping us lying awake for nights and days
Tired of dreaming in black and white
Reflections of the past that cannot be changed

No-one should be left to face this world alone
What’s inside you is also inside me
Every promise that we have made
Should never come as a surprise or filled with lies
It’s up to us to blaze a path cushioned with velvet skies

There’s no need to hide behind stars of your own making
The sound of celebration is our salvation
It’s never too late to walk these streets together
Mysteries are kept in the heart waiting to be discovered
Today might not explain tomorrow but tomorrow just might explain today


Still want more? Well then, how about some more entries for Day 2 of NaPoWriMo. I’ll be adding to this list regularly whenever I find more content, so happy reading of some amazing poetry from a wonderful community 🙂
