The Poet in Me

Must we contend
Word to word
Rhyme to rhyme
Sword to sword

Can we be friends
End this game
Confess a candle
Needs a flame
Without either
No one would see

A pigment of imagination
Is your denial of reality
I need you
As you need me

Dversepoets.com Tuesday prompt Ingrid wants us to write in narrative Voice using a fictional character. Not sure if this is quite what she means. More what I keep calling a fictional character? You decide.

About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.

    I enjoyed your fictional conversation with ‘the poet in you,’ Mary – your Muse, perhaps? I love the phrase ‘A pigment of imagination’ 🙂
