A Nip of Inspiration from The Girl Who Left You
excerpted from the poem, Camouflage:
… Tucked against your chest, it took hours for me to fall asleep, so afraid I would wake in flames or as ash in a blue dish at your feet. Hush, you whispered like a shepherd to his flock on a full-moon night. Or the wolf, under his breath, who answers I’m here. I’m here. ***
Now go write! We look forward to reading your entries!
