NaPoWriMo2018: Amanuensis


I’m fairly depressed tonight. My life is not going well. I have a lot of unpleasant stress going on, and wish to retire to my blanket-fort. Feeling overwhelmed, I have penned this little piece, to reflect how I’m feeling.

AMANUENSIS

Tonight I come to the page

So alluringly blank

I’ve been here before

Keeping faith with the power of words

Seeking redemption in the writing process

Cries for help; declarations of love

Magical thinking only got me into more trouble

I have sought, in my own way

To make sense of my life

By pinning it to paper

Pinterest for the disaffected

Just magnifying the mess

After all is done I can only say

I have borne witness
