August Writing ~ Wifely #AugustWriting

5

A selection of names spewed daily on her

His modus operandi delivered with slurs

She had her young heart captured my him

Promises shoveled convinced her to give in

A matrimonial trap sprung on this beauty

Pleasing the unpleasant as her commanded duty

All essence of her being forced to be hidden

Behaving only by his rules forcefully given

A spark of survival seeks escape from within

The scream of her strength reclaiming her skin

A rediscovery of herself now no longer treading lightly

She will no more be confined to his warped form of wifely

August Writing ~The first of its kind #AugustWriting

3

A spark ignites synaptic threads

That bulb of a thought floats above heads

Conceptual spirit launches a drive

Incentives to make dreams come alive

Pieces are measured for first fabrication

Failings induce relenting frustration

The drawing board awaits that eventual return

Determination fuelingĀ  midnight oil’s burn

Futility in attempts await in going forward

Expectations for success are rapidly lowered

Exit the stream where all ideas stop

An alternate variable picked outside the box

Hopes elevated in attempting yet another birth

Another failure would be synonymous with self worth

At last, a success this thing born from inventive minds

A construction of spirit, the first of its kind
