Day 15: Writer’s Digest prompts us to write an adjective poem. “Pick an adjective, make it the title of your poem, and then, write your poem.”



I’m trying hard to keep it real

But sometimes the walls turn all liquid

And some piece of me just walks out on the rest

And heads for the woods to search

For something I lost years ago

I don’t know what I lost or what it looks like

Because I’m stuck inside forgetting

I can’t grasp it in my fingers or my head

But I wonder how many pieces of myself

Are out there wandering in the woods

And what will happen when I finally find

What it was I lost so irresponsibly

So please I’m begging you forgive me

When I look like I’m not here with you

I swear to you with everything I have

I’m trying hard to keep it real
