I Fell For It…Again

I am so gullible. Naive even. I truly believed I wouldn’t fall for it, no matter what they did, no matter what they said. But my own nature betrayed me, so now it’s official.

I have entered NaPoWriMo’s April Poetry challenge.

My house is completely upside down right now. Chez Lunatic is indeed moving and half of my belongings, and my family’s, are in one place, and the rest in another. But I do have internet so I’m not completely off the grid, though it was a close thing let me tell ya. My two elder kids nearly lost it. I mean, seriously. If the Zombie Apocalypse happened today they wouldn’t make it. I’m certain one, if not both, would throw themselves in front of the zombies because life is apparently not worth living without internet. They would never have survived the 80’s. Thank god they have me for a mother and not their grandmother. We were thrown outside and told to go play and not let back in unless our bladders were about to burst. They have no idea how lucky they are.

Because of the chaos involved I told myself I wasn’t going to participate this year. I have so much to do and I’m so utterly exhuasted every day in every way right now and I felt that there was just no way I’d be able to keep up. And then I logged in today and decided to just go see what the prompt was…

Yeah, I fell off the wagon…hard.

For Hasty, because today is her birthday:

A Happy Birthday Lune

By Jessica Scott

Because you were born

I’m happy;

That’s why we tell you.

And because I couldn’t stop there…

The Silence of a Thousand Words

By Jessica Scott

It’s what I don’t say

that matters,

so pay attention.

 

And…

The Broken Promise

By Jesi Scott

They promised no tears,

but he lied…

and he cried for her.

Sigh.

Well played, NaPoWriMo, well played.

P.S.  I am NOT doing the A-Z Blogging Challenge this year. Truly. One challenge per move is enough.

Jesi Scott is an aspiring writer of novels, a poet, and blogger. She has guest-blogged over at The Well-Tempered Bards, and has a post featured at For Love Of…. Jesi has two poems published in Memories of Mist, a literary anthology, and one published story in a newsletter. She is currently working on releasing her first poetry collection as well as writing her first novel. When not writing, Jesi can be found getting lost in bookstores, singing and dancing around the house, experiencing culture with friends, and generally having fun with her four sons when they aren’t driving her weeping into her closet, which she calls her Padded Cell. She loves to rescue stray bookmarks, as well as books, and has opened her heart to any and all stories needing a home. Archery is her current favorite thing ever but you might want to stand back a little as she still has a tendency to drop the bow occasionally.
