Silence

Day 20: Writer’s Digest April 2016 PAD

Until last week, it had been since before Thanksgiving that I’d submitted poems anywhere. I’d received more than 10 rejections in that time, and well, I’m human–so I was a little down. Decided to submit some poems this month and over the weekend received an acceptance of not one but five poems all at once! Anyway, it just goes to show the importance of perseverance–all writers need a little; it’s just something that should be said.

For today’s prompt, write a poem of what goes unsaid. Maybe it’s unrequited love, a hidden contempt, spoiler to the most recent TV show or blockbuster movie. Whatever goes unsaid, maybe write it instead.

 Silence

What was left when you disappeared…

What remained when I asked why…

What hung deep and heavy between

us for months…

What was on my phone that

never rang…

 

To this day …

I still do not

Understand…
