Hey there everyone.
Welcome to Day 30 and my final entry for National Poetry Writing Month.
The prompt over at NaPoWriMo HQ was to go with something short and sweet.
However, I ended up writing something a bit longer and much more sensual instead.
My inspiration came from “Shrinking Women” by Lily Myers and it was intriguing to see how starkly different in tone both of our poems are, such is the nature of the results of found poetry experiments.
You can find a video of Lily performing her courageous, magnificent poem here:-
If you would prefer to read her lyrics then you can find them here:-
And finally, here is my last poem for the month of April, thank you ever so much for reading and all of you have yourselves a very lovely evening 🙂
“Sensual Space We Make Around Us” – by David Ellis
Across smiles over red wine
To find nuance in every movement
Each time, the space around seems swelled
Wonder is making entrance into lives
Knowing how to fill up, to grow out
To roll off your tongue, to absorb
Read enough from someone
The way silence in between
Can still feel like countless trips to bedroom
Deciding how many bites is too much
The burden of obsession, wanted
Still staring, with wine soaked lips
