So I’m posting this a day late, but I did write it yesterday, so… 😉
The day nine prompt was to write a poem that included a line that I was afraid to write. It might be because it expressed something very personal that makes me uncomfortable – either because of its content (“I always hated grandma”), or because it seems too emotional or ugly or strange (“I love you so much I would eat a cockroach for you”). Or even because it sounds too boring or expected (“You know what? I like cooking noodles and going to bed at 7 p.m.”). But it should be something that I was genuinely a little scared to say. So I wrote a line about panic attacks, something I think is unfortunately misunderstood in general. I ended up splitting the line into four though, and based the rest of the poem around these four lines being the last stanza.
What scares me
I don’t know
But I do wish
It would go away
