#OctPoWriMo Day 13-If I Were You

 

Day 13 is to write a Blitz poem discussing your perspective to someone. The blitz is not my favorite form so to make it more interesting to me to write, and to add a little more of a challenge, I put more thought into it and tried to make as much of it rhyme as I could. I feel it worked out a little better than it could have by doing so. And I hope you enjoy.

Also, for those interested, I am on the mend. Definitely feeling much better today. Thank you for all the thoughts and well-wishes!

If I Were You

By Jesi Scott

 

 

If I were you

If you were me

Perhaps you’d see

Perhaps you’d be

The one I’d crave

The one to save

Save my life

Save my world

World in my heart

World torn apart

Apart from this

Apart and dismissed

Dismissed from here

Dismissed to disappear

Disappear from life

Disappear from view

View my hurt

View my pain

Pain everlasting

Pain forecasting

Forecasting to amend

Forecasting the end

End the history

End my misery

Misery of us

Misery in exodus

Exodus of the end

Exodus to begin

Begin again

Begin and feign

Feign these feelings

Feign these meanings

Meanings that lie

Meanings that cry

Cry a river

Cry and deliver

Deliver the package

Deliver the message

Message left behind

Message that’s over

Over and out

Over and without

Without a word

Without a doubt

Doubt you

Doubt me

Me in truth

Me so obvious

Obvious

Truth.
