National Poetry Writing Month: Day #13 (April 13, 2014)

Today’s prompt comes from the Poetry Prompts page at Write a poem using Skeltonic Verse.

I’ve shed no tears
for so many years
all my worst fears
have no place to go
So they grow and they grow
and the next thing I know
they knock me about
as they fight to get out
fuelling my doubt
till I just want to shout
‘Shout—let it all out
these are the things I can do without’
But still no crying
So I have to keep trying
to nourish the seed
until I find what I need
to get back on track
and climb my way back
to a happier place
where I might have the space
to breathe easy
