dispersing & reflecting light through poetry

NaPoWriMo Day 20

Day 20 [9:53-11:07 pm]
Today, write an abecederian poem. It’s when the first letter of each line follows the order of the alphabet. So, the first line starts with A, the second with B, the third with C, etc. In the end you should have a 26-line poem. (thepoetsbillow.org/2016/04/20/day-20-poetry-challenge/)

The ABCs of a Bad Relationship

After all that–
before anything else can happen;
chances are it’s too late.
Don’t really want to think about
ever having to go through that again.
Forget I brought it up.
Go…
home. Please.
Insincerity and raw stubbornness
jinx the whole deal every time. Yet I go in
knowing it will only be a re-run of the
last time.
Maybe. Maybe
next time. Maybe next talk. Maybe…
Okay.
Perhaps I should just
quit
rambling and
sink into the inevitable…or maybe
this time the light will come on and the
understanding of the situation will be
very clear.
Why do I still sign off with
XOXO?
You didn’t always think of me as a
zero.
