I’ll wait

Just beyond the clouds 

Slightly over the horizon 

I will be waiting there 

For the day that I will see you

Perhaps a treat  

Or maybe a steak 

The feeling of dread 

I just cannot fake 

Why is he here 

Waiting for me to drop 

Should I call a fireman, 

Or maybe a cop. 

I may be stuck now 

But it can’t be for long 

If I get eaten alive 

You’ll know you were wrong.

Breaking the rules

This post is in response to Roberta Writes: https://robertawrites235681907.wordpress.com/2020/07/06/open-book-blog-hop-writing-rules-and-me/

So thinking about my writing I do a few things without even thinking that I have to try to un-habit from.

  1. Starting sentences with “so” or “if”
  2. Using exclamation points to the point of nausea
  3. telling rather than showing
  4. developing boring titles.

I’m sure I could continue with my list but this is enough self-reflection for one day!
