Today, I decided to combine the prompts from two websites into my new poem.
Out of my depth I often flounder
My too-conscious self hardly seeing
Through the mist.
Suddenly, I up and give a shrug. A proud moment.
Then inside I’m still stupefied,
But my outside blusters deafeningly.
Attracting all it can, swollen with tension.
Then I stop breathing to feel my true self
Hush and fake a smile.
