Once upon a time I used to write a whole lot more than I do now and really enjoyed the challenge presented to me through other people’s writing prompts. Indigo Spider used to host Sunday Picture Press and would provide us with thought provoking and quite unique visual prompts to inspire us each Sunday to write. It has been three years since I last participated in her writing challenges or to be honest did much writing at all. I was pleased to find that she has decided to restart Sunday Picture Press just in time for me to start coming out of my shell and attempt to dabble with words again. This week’s prompt was Angry and Broken. She provided quite a few visual prompts to work with but one really reached out to me and so that is the one I worked with. I also found myself writing in a different form than I usually do but perhaps the long hiatus from writing has changed my style just as my life experiences during that time have changed me as a person. So please be kind, I am not new at this but I am in a way reborn at it.
Angry and Broken
Insulation falling away
I padded myself to protect me from you, now that I am stronger what are you going to do?
Scars and bones swapping place
From this day forward I am surrounded by virtual armour.
Bile rising to the throat
A bitter taste to drive me on.
Pressure building ready to blow
Are you ready? I am coming for you.
Feeling once again alive.
Anger fuels my new found pride.
Fight or flight
Nice girls don’t fight.
What will others think?
Head in a fog
I am not like you.
I cannot win.
Body collapses to the ground
I am broken once again.
