What if I didn’t?


Day 9. Prompt: Title your poem (blank) if (blank). Then fill in the blanks – an IF poem.


Because I am a dreamer
I like to think about what ifs
but what if I didn’t?

 



Bonus poem: I wonder if you know

I wonder if you know
how I was once whole,
a mother through and through,
certain I’d found that one thing
I was good at, at last.

I wonder if you know
how close I’ve come to death,
how much nothing I’ve become,
now that I can barely call you mine
and you won’t call at all.
