Reflect (an acrostic poem)


Reacting to a year full of memories overwhelmed her

Every insult and hurt brought tears to her eyes

Filling her with a sadness that threatened to overwhelm her

Letting loose a shuddering sob, she focused on the positives

Every hug and laugh filled her to overflowing with a happiness that leaked between the tears

Changing them to wet badges of joy

That lifted her spirit and gave her hope for the new year

Hurt (an acrostic poem)

Her eyes leaked water, at least that’s how he looked at it

Useless showing one’s emotions in public like that

Really it was contemptuous her humiliating display

That was what he was going to do in the privacy of his shower
