NaPoWriMo 2019 – Day 30 – “Sensual Space We Make Around Us” – A Found Poem Inspired by “Shrinking Women” by Lily Myers

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
